What’s your motive?

Autumn. We say goodbye to the last rays of summer and greet the falling leaves and the first storms. And with that, our summer wardrobes are packed away. A versatile trans seasonal outfit starts with a print top or blouse. Think about it: it’s too early for thick winter sweaters when the sun still reaches into our living rooms and offices, but in a blouse with an eye-catching pattern, you can be effortlessly cool, chic or laidback depending on what you team it with – and you won’t overheat. If the wind is rattling the windows and your bike ride means surviving heavy showers, the print top is the perfect layer to wear under a gorgeous coat or a pretty knit. Perfect, because it isn’t too thick, and classy because it lends your autumn weather outfit that touch of elegance. With the festive season coming up, a blouse accessorised with beautiful earrings is an understated party look, while when spring come along, there’s nothing like a blouse to announce the freshness of the new season.

How do you choose a print?

Summum Woman offers several print tops in its collection. The leopard print (1) is a classic that has undergone an update: enlarged and coloured. The result is a paint-like effect in red, grey and black printed on a high-necked ¾ sleeve top.

Also pretty is the subtly sporty top (2)  in a supple viscose with bold leafy shapes in evocative autumn tones like chocolate, sand, anthracite and ice blue. The top is finished with a sweatshirt hem and cuffs with a contrasting gold band: a popular style clash that is very now – just think of Gucci’s runway show.

Black-and-white prints are always attractive due to the powerful light and dark contrast. Black-and-white also goes well with colour, from signal red to soft pink. Summum Woman presents a black  feather-like print (3) on a white background that is used for a ruched blouse featuring a contrasting black trim and a top with ¾ sleeves (4) and a subtle puff and an openwork overlay. In the same colour scheme, you can opt for a polka dot blouse (5) with white dots on black or black on white featuring a keyhole neckline and sleeves that flare below the elbow.

Other standout pieces from the collection include the delicate black-white-rust leaf print top (6) with its festive lurex thread; the flowers and birds on a dark background print top (7) featuring elasticated cuffs; and the sweatshirt-style top (8) in a luxuriant print of deep blue and red organic shapes overlaid with clusters of small and large white polka dots.

How to wear prints

A print top is the star of your outfit: not much should be added. The easiest thing to do is pair it with a plain coloured separate. Print on print can work, but usually should be colour-matched. A print blouse adds a subtle accent worn under a cardigan and can be instantly dressed up with a plain, well-cut jacket. The delicate fabric of a chiffon print top also creates an exciting contrast worn with a chunky knit – perfect for those changeable weather days. An on-trend look is the marriage of a feminine blouse with chic track pants, perhaps with a contrast stripe down the seam. And for the festive season, wear your print blouse with statement earrings in rhinestone or coloured stone. Very fashionista!
