Graphic prints are one of the most important fashion trends for spring/summer 2013. Stripes, polka dots, checks or checkerboard patterns turn every outfit into an eyecatcher! The silhouettes and styles used for this trend are simple and pure, therefore the prints can show their full potential. The main focus for this fashion trend is on the fabrics which are printed, laser-cut or sewn together forming patterns. Tip: With such a flamboyant trend, the accessories should play a minor role. Solid coloured accessories can emphasize one’s outfit without competing with these flashy prints.
Since the focus of this trend is on the fabric, it is pretty easy to DIY the trend. Below you can see a small selection from Spoonflower but there is much more out there. I bet you can even find a lot at your fabric store next door. I actually have a sewing project incorporating the trend of graphic prints planned for this weekend. Let’s hope that I will get to finish it by Sunday so that I can show it to you soon! Which sewing projects will you be sewing this weekend?
