11 Trendy Prints We're Loving for Summer

Summer is our favorite season for so many reasons, but mainly we just love a good excuse to dress in bright, bold, and lively prints. Of course there are appearances from age-old friends, like florals and nautical themes, but we're welcoming some new players this season. Channel your animal instincts, add a little bit of zest, and take a quick trip to the tropics: We've gathered 11 of our favorite blogger looks for some summery inspiration.

Move aside, florals, we're cutting down to the stems. Bold leaf prints in crisp colors are a trend we're loving this summer. Annabelle of Vivaluxury keeps her look fresh with minimal accessories.

Tie dye isn't just a camp craft anymore. The favorite childhood pastime gets the designer treatment for summer 2014. Devon of Devon Rachel looks so adorbs in this tie-dyed flowy frock. We suggest pairing your pick with strappy sandals and a sweet backpack.

Daisy prints blossomed onto the fashion scene last summer, but this time around they're bolder than before. Think dark backgrounds with pops of white and yellow flowers, à la Taylor of La Voyageuse.

Aimee from Song of Style is hypnotizing in a kaleidoscope print. The psychedelic pattern looks fabulous on a colorful dress, romper, or skirt, and we suggest edging it up with some studded sandals.

Let's be real: Animal prints are quickly becoming our go-to basics, and this summer we're all about the snakeskin. From dresses—like Sally Ann's from A Piece of Toast—and skirts to clutches and shoes, incorporate a bit of the exotic print into your summer wardrobe.

Polka dots have grown up, and we're loving the new mature look of this trend. The classic print looks great in navy and white, like the button-up worn by Nicole of Frankie Hearts Fashion, but we suggest playing—carefully—with colors for summer. Hint: Keep the print small and avoid too many frills to keep it age-appropriate.

Pineapples have long been considered a symbol of warmth and welcoming, so it only makes sense that the delicious fruit is making appearances in fashion. Look for all-over prints in fresh and bright colors, like the trousers worn by Christine of Hello Fashion, and pair with clean accessories.

We've long been fans of nautical prints for summer because, duh, it just makes sense, and this season we're steering toward anchors. Bold graphic prints, like this sweatshirt worn by Jessica of Bows & Sequins, are a great way to incorporate a little sea inspiration into your everyday look. Looking for a dress or bottoms? Stick to a smaller, all-over print.

Triangles are some of our favorite shapes, and lucky for us, geometric prints are a huge trend this summer. Blair of Altantic-Pacific shows us how to rock the trend by keeping the silhouette simple and clean. Whether you go for a duotone look like Blair's or something a bit more colorful, we suggest keeping the accessories to a limit and most definitely simple.

Baroque Lace

Lace and sheer are obvious summer do's, but this season is all about the baroque pattern. We love the leafy and cordlike mirrored design of Maddy of Maddinka's shirt. The key to the baroque pattern is a delicate and intricate design. Might we suggest investing in some pretty bralettes?
