Something For The Weekend

7 July 2014

It really is the summer of magnificent prints and therefore it would be a damned shame not to emblazon yourself in them. We bring you 'Something For The Weekend: Prints Charming Edition'.

You can spend a little (the high street and online retailer gang have an amazing offering) or you can spend a lot if you're after something a bit more unusual, but with the sales still going strong at least opting for higher end isn't *quite* so painful.

You can tell the shops are already leaning towards next season as the colour palettes are that bit more muted when it comes to new arrivals, but it's only the beginning of July for god's sake....don't spoil scarves by getting excited about them now when August is still a distant dream on the horizon.

Shops are silly. Stick to the summer goodness (espesh as a lot of it's reduced) and don't get lured in by knitwear. Yet.

1. Jacket by Carven - £172.50 (reduced from £345)


It's nice to see a tropical print that isn't fluro bright and this jungle design is as lusciously sophisticated as it is leafy. The purple and green tones will carry you through to next season easily. AND IT'S HALF PRICE. So get it.

Buy it here.

2. Jumpsuit by Dorothy Perkins - £35


Perfect for festivals and sunshine boozing (except for the fiddly weeing situation) and the neon touch just helps bring a bit of colour so you don't have to think too much about fancy accessories.

Buy it here.

3. Gown by Mara Hoffman - £205 (reduced from £410)


It's rare to find a gown that's elegant AND fun. If anyone was going to manage it, it would be Mara. Her prints are my favourite thing ever (well, within the realm of print design...I still prefer chips and holidays overall) and this chiffon dress has a beautiful keyhole back to ensure optimum lust worthiness. 

Buy it here.

4. Dress by & other stories - £33 (reduced from £65)


You can play with prints without going cray about it. This simple dress is made by the gorgeous Grecian-esque trim. The drawstring waist is super flattering, too.

Buy it here.

5. Dress by Wallis - £24 (reduced from £30)


Ok so you probably don't regularly shop at Wallis, but you can find some great gems in there sometimes. I love this high neck midi design.

Buy it here.

6. Trousers by Miss Selfridge - £28


Like joggers, but better because by having a print on them they automatically become 'smart' and 'going out appropriate'. We can't do that with our real joggers. The print will last well into next season thanks to the Autumnal colours.

Buy them here.

7. Dress by Mara Hoffman - £143 (reduced from £286)


I feel like all I do is say 'BUY MARA HOFFMAN' in these SFTW posts, but when she makes dresses like this it's hard not to include them. Constantly. This neckline is ridiculously flattering and there are side slits too, but don't worry - these only go to the knee. You don't have to do a 'where are your pants?' Kendall Jenner when you wear this.

Buy it here.

8. Shorts by Topshop - £38


Because some of us don't wanna wear short shorts, mmmmmmk?

Buy them here.

9. Earrings by Wolf & Moon - £42


Handmade and inspired by raw crystal formations, these perspex and wood earrings may not be printed but they are pretty fabulous.

Buy them here.

10. Wellies from Topshop - £40


These DEFINITELY count as printed. If your feet can't be parrots then what is the point, people?! Forget festivals, I want to see people wearing these on their morning commutes.

Buy them here.
