The midi dress will always been known as the dress of the season from Summer 2018. The midi dress is perfect for pretty much any occasion and there was a multitude of prints that ruled the roost. Floral prints and polka dot prints were present as they are every year but it was animal prints that topped the list.

Street-stylers of the global fashion shows turned up in a multitude of different prints and some of them stole the show. There are some rules that these street stylers tend to follow. The new take on the Summer dress is longer than its predecessor and comes in earthy shades. We agree with those rules but it’s the prints we saw that we need to investigate further. Animal prints have reigned supreme for some time in the fashion world but it was the tiger stripe prints that caught our eye the most. It was safari vibes all the way and you will see a lot more of this print as we go into the pre Autumn shows. What about the footwear I hear you say?
