Another popular trend on the catwalks for Spring / Summer 2012 was Geometric prints, this trend was displayed on a range of designer's catwalks and was all presented with slightly different twists. Some designers combined this trend with the neon trend, creating very vibrant patterns, others added it to key shapes such as the 1920s straight cut dress.

This is a very versatile trend and can be done big and boldly, or subtle and delicately, depending on what suits you most. The print can be subtle by only using a couple of colours, or even a black and white print could have a strong impact but without being too dominant. You could pair a geometric print top with a full length skirt to enhance the femininity of the look, or wear with a simple pair of jeans to create a more casual look.

Here are a couple of geometric print items currently available on the highstreet to give you some inspiration!

This a great spring dress from ASOS and at £28 a great budget buy, however if this a bit too bold for you try...


This print top from Topshop; £34. The colours in this item a a bit more mute and could be paired with black jeans for a smarter / dinner date look, or with blue denim jeans for a more casual look.


Or finally there is this dress from REISS, £139 which is a much softer approach to the geometric print trend, the use of only two colours gives the dress a more forgiving look, and the blurred lines in the pattern design makes the dress on trend without being too overpowering.
