When it’s too warm to layer, printed pieces are an easy way to add visual interest to an outfit.
Floral prints are everywhere this season. And if florals are your thing, you can easily take your pick. While I love the look of many floral prints on others, I often find them hard to wear myself. So as I’ve been searching for some alternatives, I thought I’d share a few you might like.
Above: I’m amused by the Got-This-On-Vacation vibe of this “Queensland” print.
Summer Print Tops…
Here’s one with a similar look that’s a bit more budget-friendly.
This feather print top has an interesting swing shape, and is a budget-friendly option from a sustainable brand, Amour Vert.
Citrus prints always feel summery. This fun lemon print shirt (Plus) is 100% cotton.
I like the shoulder button detail on this shell. Wear on its own or under a light jacket.
This easy lemon print top is offered in Misses, Petites and Plus sizes.
Tie-dye is another print that’s Having a Moment. But it’s not all about Grateful Dead concert flashbacks; there are some modern and sophisticated prints too, like this one in 100% organic cotton.
This cotton-gauze shirt is an interesting take on both stripes and gingham.
Not just another striped shirt…the detail on the sleeves and collar take this cotton shirt up a notch.
This one’s a more budget-friendly option, also with some fun details.
I love polka dots, but they can sometimes skew a bit twee. Not these.
I’d call the print on this tee “houndstooth-adjacent.” The fabric is modal, made from sustainably grown beechwood.
Gingham is another summer print that can sometimes veer off toward Twee-land, but the clean lines of this cotton dress balance it out nicely and make it summery but sophisticated.
