As the title suggests, I love print. I mean seriously love it. Big and bold, cute and ditzy, tribal, polka dots, stripes, monochrome, multicoloured... I love all permutations of print. I know some people can be scared of print, especially this season's penchant for clashing two or more together, but I cannot get enough prints in my wardrobe. Don't get me wrong, I can adore plain or block-coloured pieces too, but there is just something about a gorgeous, eye-catching print that excites me. And of course, thanks to my huge print obsession, one of my favourite designers is the genius that is Mary Katrantzou - and today I wore one of her pieces.
Blazer & Earrings - Topshop; Shirt (worn as dress) - Mary Katrantzou for Topshop; Leggings - Miss Selfridge; Shoes - Primark; Belt - Malene Birger; Necklace (just seen under collar) - New Look; Cuff - H&M.
Okay, so it's not mainline Katrantzou, but no way could I afford that! However, I did manage to get my paws on this and a few other things in the massive fashion moment that was Mary's collaboration with Topshop.. and this is the first time I have worn this piece. I'll own up - it's a shirt. But since I am on the smaller side and could only manage to pick this up in a medium, it qualifies as a dress. At least with something underneath it does. Now to be honest, I've never really been a 'leggings-and-a-top' girl, at least not when I'm not lazing around my house, but I just felt like leggings were the way to go with this shirt/dress. I opted for a slightly sheeny, almost wet-look pair (remember that trend from a few years back?) and I quite like the juxtaposition of textures with the sheer, chiffony shirt.
My absolute favourite thing of today's look is of course the stunning digital floral print - it's bright, bold, beautiful, interesting, eye-catching, statement-making and somehow really easy to wear for day. Mary Katrantzou truly is the master of prints.
