Psychedelic print, the classic of all prints is back again. This print came from the 60s and 70s when everything was about living life, free-spirited fun and most of all, expressing yourself through your outfits. It’s perfect for lifting your mood and has been slightly modernised over the years to match the vibes of current generations.
This print comes in many forms, eye-catching brights or bold monotones. Kendal Jenner was recently spotted wearing a bold black and white printed two-piece (bandeau top and a pair of straight-leg ‘Twiggy’ trousers by designer 16Arlington). She wore the outfit with a white Prada ‘Cleo’ shoulder bag and square toe heeled sandals.
Whether you’re staying home this summer or travelling on a holiday getaway, there are many ways of wearing and styling these jazzy prints and here’s how: Some fashion influencers on Instagram wear this print by mixing it with a 90s style/vibe (from head to toe). Their hair: sometimes cut in a bob/shorter hair with a headband or longer hair with a silk scarf, styled with thick rim rectangle sunglasses, a small shoulder bag, slightly flared trousers, halter neck or crop top and chunky trainers.
If you’re feeling really colourful, why not try wearing a dress or two-piece that has multiple colours and then match all your accessories and shoes with the same colours in your outfit.
