Nothing says summer like a summer dress, so why not jump on this season’s enduring trend for tropical prints with a fashion-forward frock? To perk yourself up from the blah spring weather, get a printed dress. It will inject some energy and colour into your outfit.

Check out some of our favourites.

Parisian label Sandro (above) is all about effortless chic. We love the clean lines and simple silhouette of this T-shirt dress with its vibrant energetic burst of colours. Dress it down with sandals or up with heels, this t-shirt dress is the epitome of wearable summer cool.

Peter Pilotto have been taking the industry by storm with their strong mix of contemporary femininity, elegance and use of colour. We love this printed sporty dress that features contrasting patterns and various shades of blue to contour and complement the female form.

Mary Katranzou is another designer to keep an eye on for prints. Her Spring 2013 collection was inspired by stamps collected from around the world and there is a romance to both the abstract designs that adorn her dresses and the kaftan-esque silhouettes of the dresses themselves. This one is perfect for barbecues and rooftop brunches. It’s feminine, summery and eye-catching all at the same time.
