SPIRITED
SPRING STYLE

This season, pops of jaunty pattern and print add interest to office ensembles and off-duty outfits, while clashing strong colours and soft pastels is a fast-track to bold, lively looks.

From ditsy florals to intricate geometric shapes and bold checks, it’s time to get some prints into your looks. Start with accessories and work up to statement shirts.

For the most accessible way to
channel the pattern trend, look out
for tailoring with hidden detailing.

ABSTRACT CHECKS
