Minimalist chic is my cup of tea but there are occasions when I am more
adventurous, and that’s when prints and colours come out to play. Since Chinese
New Year is just around the corner, I figured it’s time to have fun with prints
and colours!
Here’s a piece of good news for you ladies. It’s prints galore at MDSCollections! From floral for spring to tropical
for summer to brocade for fall and winter, there is a print for any mood you’re
in. Here are a few pieces I’m eyeing from the home-grown fashion label now:
1. Floral
There is never a time when floral print isn’t relevant. A spring-ready
print like that brightens up any day and makes a statement on its own. Just
look at Miranda Kerr’s ladylike ensemble.
Do you know what makes floral print even more feminine? A floral midi
skirt reminiscent of the 1950s like this one from MDS. Perfect with white pumps
and a crop top.
2. Tropical
Selena Gomez’s sunny Dolce and Gabbana red carpet outfit had me sold on
tropical prints.

Even if you can’t take that island vacation now, wearing tropical prints
can put you in a vacation mood. Well, at least it works for me, which is why
this adorable flamingo and palm tree printed blouse caught my eye. Pair it with
skinny pants and a pair of loafers, and you’re all ready for the weekend.

3. Brocade
I may not be a huge Selena Gomez fan, but she definitely hit the right
note with this Dolce and Gabbana outfit again. This time, she stands out from
the crowd in a luxurious brocade print dress:

Dating back to as early as the Middle Ages, brocade fabric was one of
the few luxury fabrics worn by nobility in Greece, China, Japan, Korea and the
Byzantium empire. Brocade print is lush and sexy in itself, but as a crop top,
brocade’s sexiness factor skyrockets. For this top from MDS, I’d pair it with
high-waist flare trousers and throw on a crisp blazer for work, or a flare
skirt for a lunch date.


4. Bird
I am OBSESSED with bird prints. Whimsical and adorable, bird motifs add a
girly touch to any outfit. Even VB looks sweet in this bird print dress.
This pair of bird print shorts from MDS Collections would go well with
ankle booties and a white blouse for a downtown look, a style that Rachel
Bilson would approve.

5. Graphic
Graphic prints are so bold and chic that they jazz up any neutral outfit
straight away. Look smart and strong a la Olivia Wilde in graphic prints!
This crop top from MDS comes with athletic details like a striped collar
and sleeves. Take on the sports luxe look with high waist flare pants and thin
strapped heels, or work the street look with cuffed jeans and sneakers.
