When it comes to prints I have to say I’m more of a minimalist really, bold bright, block colour and of course a stripe with the odd hint of animal print, but there is a particular print that’s recently caught my eye and it’s the botanical print.
I’m loving the palm or banana leaf style print, on a crisp white background and then this bold splash of green, but there are lots of ways this look is achievable. Just take a look at the below catwalk and street style pics to see different ways you can work this look into your wardrobe.

Some of these looks are big and bold, like the Blake Lively jumpsuit, but look how a pair of printed city shorts, teamed with a fresh white shirt offers just a hint of this totally tropical vibe making it pretty easy to wear.
The most natural habitat to try this look is of course on holiday and there are lots of lovely printed kaftans out there that’ll achieve this look. I just snapped up a beauty in the Monsoon sale, it’s listed below but I’ll post pics on Instagram once it’s popped through my postbox. I’ll be teaming it with denim cut-offs and a plain bikini when I get to hit the beach, but also want to get maximum wear out of it and know how work well with skinny ripped jeans and a silky cami.
Whether you’re shopping online or on the high street you can find beautiful botanical prints on everything from footwear, scarves and bags to maxi dresses, camis and tailoring. And I’ve attempted to make it easier for you by narrowing down my perfect picks that will help you achieve this look no matter the style, event or occasion.
