No shade to our beloved neutrals, but prints are all we can think about lately. Sometimes, you simply want to blend in and keep it subtle, but it's okay to be the centre of attention once in a while. The preferred way among insiders to stand out right now? Grabbing one of the striking prints that have been flittering through the fashion spheres this season.

Much to our surprise, this season's runways didn't include the typical lineup of prints we're used to seeing. Instead, it was a grab bag of patterns and graphics, from the extreme to more subdued takes. All in all, everything felt amped up in a way that is fresh and exciting to the eyes. Here, we run through the major print trends you can expect to pop up everywhere in coming seasons.

Speaking of prints, we can never forget a printed favourite – florals. The floral trend still continues from previous years as they continue to rule the printed fashion realm. The most playful print out there, floral prints have the power to add liveliness to just about everything. So, give life to a dull hue with a digitally printed floral kurta. Apart from florals, the evergreen and popular block print trend is here to sweep our hearts. A block printed kurta is alluring, eye-catching, and has the ability to elevate your look. Also, geometric prints of epic proportions are big this season. Basically, your eyes can't help but divert to this flamboyant pattern.
