2018 is in full swing and if you’re ready to amp up your style game, then take note of these prints that are set to dominate.
Embrace classic pinstripes
This iconic print is back with a bang this year. While pinstripes are generally worn in neutral combinations and palettes, this season is set to be bolder in terms of colours. In fact, look out for this classic print on tailored garments in an array of hues.

Get your camouflage on
Camo started appearing on the scene in late 2017, a trend that’s set to gain momentum over the next few months. This time round, the print is not reserved for casual pieces alone. Expect to see camouflage on everything from blazers to pencil skirts. Remember to opt for one camo piece per outfit to keep your look chic.
Fabulously vibrant florals
Yes, florals are always in style but in 2018 the colours are more vibrant and eye-catching. Think bold splashes of 2018’s colours of the year – ultraviolet, turquoise and fuschia on dark backgrounds.
Larger floral patterns will dominate as ditsy prints are phased out. Look out for leafy prints in vibrant green since these are set to be just as popular as florals in 2018.View this post on Instagram

Checks, tartan, plaid and gingham are all in for 2018. Anything goes – whether you’re opting for something small and simple or choosing colourful, larger checks.
The hottest look this year will see combinations pairing variants of this trend. Think a red tartan skirt with a black and white gingham blouse. Be bold!
Amaze in animal prints
It’s time to unleash your wild side because leopard and cheetah prints are back again. The look will feature anything and everything – including clothing, accessories and shoes.
Playful in polka dots
Get ready for a return to retro! Polka dots are back in a big way in 2018 – in a range of varieties. Standard black and white polka dots in all sizes are still in style. But the real attention will be on blurred, pixelated iterations of the print in a multitude of colours.
