STYLE GURU STYLE: Pattern Envy

We see it everywhere: PATTERNS! Many of my fellow Fashionistas have even written about this dominating trend. With this fun movement and summertime slowly taking a toll, patterns can make anyone want to dance around all day. Whether you want a little no-fuss pattern on your purse or a cute pair of heels, or you want to go all out with a statement jacket or skirt, the world is yours for the taking when you add a little pattern to your life. Wearing prints and patterns is easy and will add a little pep to your step that’ll have you dancin’ in the streets.

Many fall 2015 collections feature bold patterns with loud and vibrant colors. One collection in particular is the Adam Lippes fall 2015 ready-to-wear line. I love how Adam Lippes line is full of modern architectural designs on almost every piece that add movement to the look as a whole. This collection is rich in color combinations that play on shape and volume.

Even though I love summertime for the lightweight fabrics, shorts, sandals and the lack of responsibility, my love for fall clothing will be so much more. The colors are so decadent and there are so many opportunities for layering! I am always a sucker for a dress and booties, so I simply took my favorite summer look and put a fall spin on it. I added a pair of ripped light wash skinny jeans and paired my favorite patterned cardigan over top of the white Free People dress. Add a pair of booties and some gold jewelry and you have yourself the perfect patterned, yet effortless look! This bohemian patterned look can be achieved by wearing any patterned sweater or jacket over a loose-fit, neutral-colored garment!
