Bold prints aren’t for everyone, but even the most minimalist dressers will find something to love from 2024’s predicted pattern trends. There’s no denying that print adds an extra dimension to a piece; whether it’s a heritage check or a painterly floral motif, this is often what makes an item of clothing stand out.

The spring/summer 2024 catwalks celebrated pattern in all its forms, but a few in particular made frequent appearances. As with all trends, you can experiment with this season’s picks as you wish: assemble a top-to-toe printed look, incorporate them subtly through accessories or invest in one piece which you can pull out when you want to rock the trend. Of course, print-averse people may decide to completely ignore them—nonetheless, it’s always interesting to find out what’s “in”, right?

And for the coming year, you can expect everything from impactful blooms that demand attention to the revival of classic designs loved in times gone by. Without further ado, scroll on to see 2024’s biggest print trends.

Style Notes: So long breton stripes, hello vertical lines. Just kidding—we’ll always have a space for Parisian stripes in our wardrobes. But for now, our attention is firmly focused this elongating take, championed by Louis Vuitton and Philip Lim.

The perfect springtime dress to invest in now (before it sells out).

Simple, classic and easy to style.

Nod to the trend with this versatile tote.

The fit of these looks exquisite.

Style Notes: Punchy monochrome florals with a hand-drawn feel were seen all over SS24 runways, either styled simply with black and white or with a splash of red in the mix. This is a print you can wear whatever the season.

Such a unique print.

Just add a slingback heel and red lipstick to dress this set up.

You could also style these separately with sneakers and a T-shirt.

Compliments guaranteed.

Style Notes: For this next trend, we’re taking it back to basics with the timeless polka dot. Vintage enthusiasts will no doubt be glad to see this ’50s favourite back in the spotlight, adorning some of the season’s simpler blouses and dresses. 

You’ll get so much wear out of this skirt on dressier occasions.

Wear with knee-high boots now and ballet flats when the weather warms.

The cowl neckline is incredibly chic.

This will never go out of style.

Style Notes: Diamonds are forever, and we think this geometric print has serious staying power. The harlequin motif, embraced by Versace and Vivienne Westwood, gives every piece a playful feel without being showy. What better way to start a new year than in a fun, frivolous outfit?

Well done, Whistles.

Ganni’s knitwear is irresistably cosy—and cheerful, too.

Tie this around your neck or the strap of your handbag.

For your next black-tie event.

Style Notes: Curved lines feature prominently in SS24 collections, either in an abstract fashion or explicitly, like on Bottega Veneta’s red-and-cream knitted dress. You could create a really interesting print-clash look around this trending pattern; perhaps paired with micro checks or stripes.

This print is divine.

The wavy lines are subtle, but eagle-eyed fashion fans will know which trend you’re nodding to.

An easy layering piece.

Waves meet zig-zags.
