Spring’s Maximalist Prints Will Give You Something to Smile About

  • 5952

Between rainbows, butterflies, and lively florals, spring’s plethora of prints is as smile-inducing as they come. On one pullover knit from House of Sunny, the screen print features a lady diving topless into a pool while Collina Strada printed smiley faces on sweatsuit sets—what could be more delightful than that?

Sure dainty chintzes are lovely, but with an optimistic, post-pandemic future ahead, there’s no better time to cover yourself in a more energizing print that goes graphic and embraces super-saturated color—be it Dries Van Noten’s bright green abstract floral skirt or Christopher John Rogers’ rainbow striped sweater. There are also squiggly and swirly blouses, vibrant geometric dresses, and an abundance of eye-catching florals that skew more maximalist than meadowy. Ken Scott’s vivid floral frocks for Gucci are certainly not to be missed. Or perhaps, drift off into day-dreamy cloudscape by way of a pair of printed trousers—we like to call them, ‘happy pants’—from Hong Kong-based knitwear brand, YanYan.

Below, discover a bounty of bold brights and statement-making prints to keep you smiling all season long.
