T-shirts, sweaters, dresses, skirts; you name it, mirror prints are on it. They are absolutely everywhere at the moment and whether you’re print shy, colour shy or having to tighten the purse strings a little, there’s something for everyone!
I’ll be honest, I don’t normally go for print, I tend to stick to clothes sans florals, geometrics or spots, because then everything matches. I AM prone to a Breton stripe, but that’s about as exciting as my life gets. But I have to say, I’m loving the mirror print.
Why? Because it’s so extremely versatile. It can be dressed up or down and can totally make an outfit, even if it’s just a nod to the trend with a little something on the side, i.e a printed bag.
I bought a mirror print dress from Motel recently and it’s so simple yet so effective, that I don’t have to worry about adding anything extra. But you don’t have to go all out on the trend and buy a dress if that’s too much for you; a mirror print t-shirt looks great thrown on with a pair of jeans or denim shorts and a mirror print skirt will put some life back into that plain white tee!
If the idea of a print scares you a little, or you’re not keen on bright colours, or simply don’t know where to start, then fear not! I have a top 10 of mirror prints available at The Trafford Centre right here for your convenience!
10) My Number 10 is this vest from Topshop at £20.00. Pair with some jeans for simplicity.
Number 10 - Vest top from Topshop
9) At number 9 is this beautiful dress from Ted Baker. The only reason this is low down on the list is because it’s in the sale and there are limited sizes left. It comes in £109 and is definitely an investment piece. It could be worn for any occasion and can be dressed up or down.
Number 9 - Dress from Ted Baker
8) This Twiggy for M&S Woman Mirrored floral dress comes in at number 8 for £39.50. Perfect for those cool evenings around the corner.

Best of all; it won’t break the bank! This top is flying off the shelves so hurry!

(Psst if you are a fan of the mirror print but like me, you don’t have the money to spend, theres a large selection of great mirrored items at Forever 21, but I couldn’t put them all in the top ten list otherwise it would be called the Top Ten Mirrored Prints at Forever 21!)
Number 3 - Forever 21 abstract sweatshirt
2) In at number 2 is Lipsy’s mirrored tropical print tee for £35.00. It’s zipped at the back and is another great transformation piece for day to night.
