Minimalists Are Clutching Their Pearls Over This Summer Trend, But I'm Loving It

It's time to say a prayer for the minimalists. Bold graphic prints have arrived in time for the new season, and by the looks of things, they'll be here for a bit. The wave of striking prints is a welcomed reprieve from the mountain of beige and black that's been flooding my feed as of late. I love the classics just as much as the next person, but I also love the idea of really shaking things up in the summer. These prints do just that.

Courtesy of brands such as Louisa Ballou, Miaou, and Jean Paul Gaultier, graphic prints are shaping up to be one of the most notable trends backed by the fashion crowd in 2022. Insiders have been loving them all, from artistic Renaissance-era prints to colorful scenic landscapes. Although the trend is quite literally the antithesis of a white button-down, it's just as easy to mix into your own wardrobe. Keep scrolling to check out a smorgasbord of pieces that exemplify the trend along with some really A1 outfit inspo.

Styled with Barbie heels—another emerging trend we've noted here at Who What Wear—this dress is a complete winner.



This zoomed-in print is so fascinating to look at.

I'm convinced no one does prints like ACNE Studios.



This dress is always sold out, so you're in luck.

If you prefer your prints with a hint of realism.

This would look great styled with a pair of jeans.

Printed mesh, in particular, is a micro-trend on its own, and if you're looking to invest, try a piece from Ottolinger.



If I had it my way, my entire closet would be nothing but Jean Paul Gaultier prints. The designer's famed archival prints have recently been reimagined in a new collection.

Pair this with a white tank or the coordinating top.
