Forget flower headbands and parkas. And ignore the slightly disturbing trend for Ekat catsuits. This Glastonbury appears to have sparked a new trend – the bomber / dress print clash.
BBC presenter Lauren Laverne became the veritable aficionado on the pattern mash-up.
Using this gorgeous Baum und Pferdgarten leopard print dress as a base for her outfit (call me crazy, but I consider leopard a neutral in the same way as black, white or grey), LL teamed it with the way out there Antipodium ‘Cry Baby’ bomber.
She also snapped a selfie wearing the same bomber with a digi print floral dress and shell necklace by Tatty Devine.
And her fellow presenter Jo Whiley also got in on the bomber clash action, Instagramming an amazing lipstick bomber / leopard dress combo. Spot the animal theme here?
I LOVE a print clash, so this trend is right up my street. There are also some amazing bombers on the high street at the moment, so combined with a summer dress it’s an easy look to achieve.
Totally appreciate it’s a bit out there for some, but sometimes you just want to make a statement, right?
Here are some ways to wear – and the rules to apply when you’re doing it.
- USE LEOPARD PRINT AS A NEUTRAL, IT WILL WORK WITH EVERYTHING
- CHOOSE PIECES THAT SHARE THE SAME BOLD COLOURS, IF NOT PATTERNS
- PICK SIMILAR PRINTS IN A REVERSE COLOUR WAY
- DOWNPLAY A SMART DRESS WITH A KITSCH PRINT
