The Summer season is all about feeling artsy cool as we witnessed a bevy of photographic prints on the runways of designers like Dries Van Noten, Carven, and Rachel Comey. Not only does this print take us back to the '90s (think tropical palm trees), we love how designers revamped the trend with sleeker, sportier silhouettes and colorful landscape prints. Style tip: keep the trend from looking too kitschy by tempering photo-print pieces with tailored accompaniments, like black trousers and sharp sandals for a directional approach toward modernism. Or you can always go the sporty route and throw on a cool photo-print tee with denim cutoffs and Chucks for an effortless day at the beach. Enticed?

At this point, leopard print has become a mainstay in our wardrobes, but that doesn't mean it can't get a bit of a makeover with the arrival of a new season. In light of Summer weather, we're embracing leopard print with a breezier tilt — just the way this styled celebrity trio is wearing it. In cool printed pants Beyoncé gives the exotic print a decidedly easy feel, while Ashley Madekwe injects her seasonal ensemble with an animal-printed accent piece via her Mulberry bag; and Krysten Ritter shows us just how sweet the pattern can feel on a '90s-style babydoll frock that's perfect for everyday. In any case, the key is relaxed silhouettes and lighter fabrics that deliver a cool-girl punch of print without overpowering your look. Loving the look?

A love affair with lush, worthy-of-an-oil-painting florals began this Spring with British fashion designer Erdem's collection featuring unabashedly feminine floral prints as its main message. Floral prints have decked everything from jeans to shift dresses in fashion this Spring, and it's feeling particularly fresh for home as well.
