There is a wave of print sweeping over fashion this season. Paisley, tribal, scarf, scenic and of course floral. There's much to choose from.

The real question is how to wear them. Will you opt for the irrepressible mash-up look where clashing is king? Or will you go for the placement option using one key, focal-point piece as seen here at Marc by Marc.

This voluminous mini with its bright on black, abstract, bird print is oh-so-pretty. Teamed with a simple tee, patent emerald heels, a cube bag and plastic visor; equal doses of dressy and casual make it a killer combination.

These tropical-print shorts from River Island definitely have the power to take centre stage.

Keep the look laidback with this marl tee and up to speed with a colour pop heel. This bracelet clutch from Zara will add a subtle yet quirky finishing touch.
