For me, Spring is finally here and this Spring everything from Floral to Panelled stripe, Checker print, Ombre print, Animal print and even Africa print happens to be everywhere. Even across the global fashion week for SS13, Collections from the likes of Gucci, Tom Ford, Burberry, Whithney Eve, David Korma, Ted Baker, Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten, Hackett, Zegna and Diesel Black Gold included print or floral designs.

Ranging from print pants to skirts, trousers, dresses, top and blazers. Fortunately, with all this availability it can't be missed. Bear in mind that when a print skirt, pant or trouser has multiple colours (which is usually the case) it can be hard to understand the best way to wear your print outfit. Well, you just need to follow the tips below and you're on your way to making your own fashion statement. Celebrities have already taken this on board. Get inspiration from some of my favourite. 

Check out the selections below.

Tips to wearing your printed pants and skirts 
1. Match your shirt or top with your favourite colour from the pant or skirt.  
2. Wear a graphic tee with printed pants for a casual-chic look.
3. Match your shoes to the brightest colour in the pant.
4. Pair with neutral tops and shoes: black and/or chambray pair well with lots of different prints and colours, and a nude or black pump or boot works well with it too.

Tips for wearing your print outfit
For a Smart-Casual Look:
1) Combine your print trouser with a blazer, shirt and smart shoes
2) Accessorize with items that add colour to your look but by all means keep it neutral if you're up for a bold statement.
This trend is going from strength to strength. So why wait? Make a statement this Spring.
