Wearing an outfit with vivid prints on it is like wearing a mono-shaded outfit with accessories. Prints are very much in vogue, just like they have always been. The best part about prints is that there are innumerable designs that are available for you to choose from, which will ensure that no one else will be dressed looking exactly like you on the same evening.


Giving us a glimpse into what fashion 2013 has in store for us, the runways showcased loud prints on dresses, trousers, t-shirts, skirts and blouses that are going to be a hot sensation for the year ahead. While most designer labels played it safe by launching prints only for their spring/summer collection, with sober colours and designs for winter, it looks like we are in luck for winter as well with a variety of prints available for fall/winter 2012-13.

Let’s catch a quick glimpse of some of the prints trending for the year 2013:

1. Floral Prints 2013

While floral prints have always been in vogue for the months of sunny spring and summer, this year we see oversized floral prints ruling the ramp. Tiny leaves and flowers seem to have fully bloomed in their glory on dresses, hence the large, oversized floral prints.

Floral prints are not restricted only to dresses for 2013. Floral skirts and trousers are in vogue, but be sure to team them up with a well matching t-shirt/blouse.


2. Snakeskin Prints 2013

Tigers have had a chance and so did leopards, cheetahs and white tigers too, so why shouldn’t snakeskin make for a pretty pattern? Well, don’t freak out. We are not talking animal cruelty here. Artificial snakeskin prints are in vogue for the upcoming year. These prints ruled on fashion runways in London, Paris, New York and Milan and are sure to make you rule too.

3. Single Bloom Prints 2013

While single bloom prints run on the same lines as floral designs, if you look closely, you will find some differences between floral prints and single bloom prints.
