SS 2013 Trend Spotlight - Quirky Prints

Quirkiness. We love it and here at My Vintage we make sure we embrace it. I have always loved quirky and unusual prints on fabric, and items of vintage that are just a bit different. So I am thrilled to see lots more quirky, fun, silly and retro style prints hitting the high street for Spring!

I have done all the hard work for you and have found a bunch of fab offerings from some of our online favourites. And I have also delved into the virtual rails and found some amazing one of a kind vintage pieces from www.myvintage.co.uk that fit the bill perfectly!

First up is Wilma and Winston - a brand I found out about via Cherry Healey. Cherry posted the infamous hot dog sweater on Twitter and I was immediately in love! Sadly it's since sold out but you can still get this equally awesome burger jumper...

Burger Jumper - Wilma + Winston - £25

I know it's a bit of (OK a lot of) a splurge... but the scenic print on this Peter Jensen dress is just soooo beautiful... available at ASOS.

Peter Jensen Cape Dress with Scenic Print - ASOS - £385

This palm tree print blazer from River Island is everything that makes me smile - it's bright and silly, just what spring should be! AND it's in the sale! Bargain!

Yellow Palm Tree Print Blazer - River Island - £30
Topshop have come up trumps with this cute pleated skirt. At first glance they may look like dark florals but on further inspection, they are actual panther heads! Yes, really!

Panther Print Skirt - Topshop - £34
I also had to include this amazing crossword t-shirt from Jameela Jamil for Very... I just love it!

Jameela Jamil Crossword Print T-Shirt - Very - £18
Now for some vintage! Quirky printed vintage makes my world go round... it also doesn't hang around for long so if you love it, grab it!

First up is this cuter than cute vintage scarf. It's printed with children's drawings which is just wonderful for anyone, whether you have kids or still feel like one!

From part of our brand new retro range, this bambi print blouse is stunning! Available in dusky pink or navy blue, this just screams vintage Babycham!

This vintage designer shirt from Armani has the cutest and quirkiest equestrian inspired print - and the grey tone are very versatile and classy.

Perfect for summer holidays, this cartoon print playsuit is cute, girly and uber 80s - we love a bit of eighties vintage!

And the final slot just had to go to this brilliant jungle print vintage dress! Another stroke of 80s genius, this mix of cartoon animals and pastel shades has got to be in your Spring wardrobe, right?
