5 Prints That Are ‘Not’ Floral But Might Just Be Groundbreaking For Spring


If like me, you’re a self-proclaimed hoarder of all things floral, it’s time for an intervention. It’s about time you stash your botanicals in the back of your closet and experiment with patterns that are beyond your typical dainty florets. I know, it’s summer and florals have forever been your love language—but how about we replace it with something equally worth your while? Think geometry but with a side of psychedelic. Or, imagine your classic animal prints interwoven with stripes, tartan, graphics and plaid.

Now, while fashion insiders may know what exactly to replace the florals with this season—we’re here to help those who can’t identify their aztecs from abstracts. Read below for our top 5  Spring/Summer prints we recommend and where can you find them.

1. Easy Like Aztec

The Aztec print is a mixed bag of geometrical elements zig-zags, polka dots, stripes and chevrons interspersed together in a creative way. If basic mathematical shapes are too boring for you, try this.

Available at: Nirmooha 

2. Abstractive

Abstracts prints are your getaway card to go wild with the pattern without giving in to the logic of alignment and design theory. If quirky, deconstructed prints are your vibe, going abstract is the way for you.

Available at: Saaksha & Kinni 

3. Check-Mate

Checkered print may seem boring and redundant but not if you play with it intelligently—just like Deepika Padukone did. Go checks on checks, but layer it on a basic graphic t-shirt. If you’re planning to keep it simple, then follow the one solid and one printed element in your outfit theory.

4. Ripple Effect

The Ripple effect a.k.a wave print is heavily favoured by the Gen-Z. Often sighted in coordinated sets and short dresses with Y2k accessories—this print is for those who like to have fun with fashion, sans the rules.

5. Logo Mania


While logomania was heavily promoted by international brands, lately Indian labels have also been following the suit. From Sabyasachi’s Bengal Tiger symbolism to Shivan & Narresh’s subtle dolphin print integration, logo prints are here to stay.
