Looking at the trends for Spring / Summer 2013, one thing is clear: Graphic geometric prints are everywhere: Stripes, checks, diamond pattern and psychedelic pattern clashes. On our first London day in Spring (sun and a boiling 16 degrees, hooray) I’m wearing a dress from Italian fashion designer Patrizia Pepe which features a drop down waist and small psychedelic pattern. The muted colours tone down the pattern, making it less bold. The dress is quite short but as always, balance is the key. The long trumpet sleeves and the high collar combined with the silk material make it look demure and classy enough for the office.
