As we know, ombre and all kinds of prints – everything from bold florals, geometrics, abstracts, artist’s ‘splodges’ – were a big story on the catwalk for spring and summer 2008. So I selected a few of these dip die and printed pieces from the Next Directory when it landed on my doormat the other day. The Dip Dye Tee-shirt ties in with the sporty looks that will be around soon, and maxi-dresses will be with us again in 2008. I really like the floral print tunic worn with white trousers – a really wearable way to pull off this look. If you want just a touch of print to add to your spring wardrobe, get the geo-print scarf from Next (this looks fantastic with a crisp white shirt) or take another look at the print scarves from Accessorize that we featured in Rachel’s LA Cool (Accessories Archive December 2nd).
