If shirting is a workwear classic, adding a print brings some fun to the office (or anywhere, really). A pretty floral combined with sportswear, as worn by Susanne, gives a surprising juxtaposition, while poppy prints – on Monique and Tessa – are playful and versatile, and work with both skirt or jeans. Then there’s the proper fashion fare that comes with a ‘conversational’ print: Wei’s bird print and the eyes on Sam’s blouse fit the bill. Prints charming, indeed.
