Marble, hands down the number one winner of print of the year, can be seen everywhere, from stationary to homeware, and of course our favourite: eyewear.

It’s a great print to mix as it is not overbearing and doesn’t clash with most other patterns.

Try mixing it with florals, stripes, and geometric patterns for the best results.

Let your freak flag fly, or just taste the rainbow.

These sunglasses are at the top of our wish list.

Pair with monochrome or technicolour, the choice is yours.

While not technically a print, rainbows are more than just every colour, they represent being yourself, so pull out one colour of the rainbow to play up in the rest of your attire, or several.

Graphics are a great option here.

You risk looking overdone here, so try and pick a few pieces to play up, while adding intermittent basics.
