This summer, bold 70s prints are everywhere. Suede A-line skirts, denim flares, striped crop tops and folk kimonos have filled the shops. We take a look at our favourite pieces that’ll have you set for this trend for summer.

Topshop

Flower power takes over at Topshop. We love these floral dresses that take you from day to night so easily. The pretty autumnal prints mean they can also take you through to next season.
