This weeks blog post is all about prints. Including a look at some fashion trend setters who wear bold prints plus some fashion tips on wearing prints yourself.
Printed fashion is not for everyone and can be slightly risky if you are unsure where to start so be bold, here are some ideas for you on the best way to wear them.
Let's take a look at recent trend setters who wear lots of prints...
Alexa Chung - Works for British Vogue, attends fashion shows, has her own clothing range, street style inspiration and wears a mix of high street and designer labels.
Olivia Palermo - Fashion writer, attends fashion shows, endorses products and is known for wearing bold prints.
Fearne Cotton - Trend setter, wears bold outfits, has her own clothing range and creates street style inspiration.
Three pieces of fashion advice for when wearing prints...
Fashion advice 1: Do not be afraid to wear more than one type of print and wear it with confidence.
Fashion Advice 2: Large prints are usually more flattering but prints are meant to be fun so be bold. Prints draw attention to certain parts of the body so use this method to help balance out your body shape.
Fashion Advice 3: Pick one colour from the main print and use this colour to accessorise or wear this colour in another part of the outfit.

With many collections featuring cut outs with mesh overlay we couldn't forget this trend which is already proving to be very popular with celebrities and fashion bloggers.
HOW TO WEAR : We aren't all daring enough to opt for all sheer everything so pair your sheer items with opaques for an on trend but elegant look. We recommend sheer panel t shirts with wide leg pants and heeled sandals.
All of us are dreaming of being on a white sand beach with turquoise waters... Far away from the grey UK weather. However for now we may have to settle for gorgeous shades of blue and turquoise in our wardrobe which have been spotted several times during fashion week for Ss15 including Elie Saab's beautiful collection at PFW featuring aquamarine and jewel toned blues featured above.
HOW TO WEAR : Mix your blue palette with white to create a beautiful summery contrast. Add jewel tones to add depth and glamour.
The classic monochrome was a sure winner this SS15 incorporated into graphic prints to create a new and exciting update. Holly Fulton's intricate designs were super wearable with a relaxed slightly oversized feel for a casual but stylish look. Monochrome is here to stay.
HOW TO WEAR : Monochrome is a great trend as its so easy to wear and isn't too intimidating. With the help of monochrome you can look perfectly polished with minimum effort. Pair a printed black t shirt with some jeans and heeled black ankle boots.
We love a good print and a bright splash of colour here at Eden. Our new Spring/Summer arrivals are bursting with personality! Here are some of our favourites to give you a little inspiration.
Bright colours aren't everyones thing. But prints should be! Here is our little black 'Govic' dress by Barcelona based brand Smash! Govic features a beautiful intricate monochromatic print and the style is great to wear all year round... plus the fabric is super soft.
Monochrome and a pop of colour is a great combination, especially when contrasting different prints against each other to give a really abstract feel. Another amazing Smash creation below is our 'Pallas' dress which contrasts monochrome and colour prints perfectly.
This lady is definitely rocking some amazing prints and colour. Our Opaline dress has a beautiful peacock inspired design in a mixture of greens, blue and oranges.
