A Fashionista that likes to take risks is usually the most inspiring type and automatically grabs the attention of any room she’s in. I personally love playing with trends and trying out new styles to see what I get. One of the most popular trends to experiment with is a bold print. From blouses to bags and everything in between, prints and patterns have been all over the streets and college campuses for seasons on end.
Polka dots, fall florals and eye-catching geometrics are the focus of this seasons latest looks. Fashionistas are finding their newest inspiration in all sorts of textiles and using them in various inventive new ways. This trend can be intimidating at first as the task of mixing and matching often seems daunting, but if you pay attention it’s really quite easy! This Fashionista had the right idea; it’s always works well if you let the print do all the work. Pairing a bold pattern with a simple basic piece is usually an instant key to success; a lot of accessories and other flashy items aren’t needed to accentuate the look. The print in itself is enough of a complement! I love how this Fashionista paired her printed short with a pair of boots for a touch of fall style.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for a more of a challenge you can try mixing and matching prints and patterns for a bold new look. The runways of Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Sui and Etro have all proven this to be true.
To get yourself started on the pattern craze I love this paisley print skirt from Nordstrom with a cute fall boot like these from Frye. Free People also has a feminine floral blazer for a more tailored style. Look around for some of your own favorites! These prints come in all forms and are surely a way to mix up your fall style this season.
