Today Retro Chick is going a bit twee, because there’s nothing I like better than a frock with a cute print*
Elephants, cats, dogs, birds bees and butterflies all make excellent novelty prints and I’ve been searching out the best ones I can find.
I know his is very little wittering on for one of my posts, but without further ado, these are 5 of the best dresses with prints of animals I’ve found. I would like one of each please.
*disclaimer: there may actually be things I like better, but I still like a frock with a cute print.
This dress makes me think of picnics and sunny days. It has a beautiful pleated skirt and a delicate butterfly print. One to wear with a big floppy straw hat.
From the Queen of the cute novelty print comes this cute 50s style dress covered in birds. It comes in black and a beigey green colour.
I love this one for it’s subtlety. It looks like a geometric print dress from a distance, then you get up close….and it’s CATS!
I have had a total obsession with finding a bee print dress since I saw a gorgeous vintage one at a press day. This is the best I’ve found so far, though the shape isn’t really ideal for me. But it’s COVERED IN BEES! Look!
The first dress that I wanted to include as my last pick was an amazing 50s style dress with a print of elephants from designer Charlotte Taylor, but sadly it’s sold out. So I investigated a bit further, and Charlotte Taylor seems to specialise in quirky animal prints. I picked this tie front dress with a “geometric from a distance, more detailed up close” Rams head print, but the dress also comes in a Stag Head print too, and is in the sale!
