Look Perfect in Prints
Posted: Oct 05 2014
Chunky knits, wovens, and cashmere- you know the drill. Autumn is here (finally), and it’s time you begin to restock your artillery with seasonal staples and the most recent Fall 2014 trends. This season, there are too many trends on our radar to even count. Nonetheless, we’re zoning in on one particular trend..
Think: oversized prints, geometric patterns, and the matching set phenomenon. We love the idea of mixing, matching, and effortlessly donning them like a pro.
You may shudder at the thought of sporting a print, regardless if it’s lady-like and floral, or edgy and geometric. But never fear, prints aren’t just for the unabashedly bold fashion maven anymore! Prints, patterns, and fearless mixing are indeed for all!
We admit, mixing prints and patterns can be intimidating. However, the most important thing to remember is to mix a big print with a small, use colors accordingly, and have fun being yourself. Take a styling cue from DvF or Proenza Schouler. They did it right this season, but of course we aren’t surprised!
But what if you’re adamant that mixing prints just isn’t for you? That’s okay, because Fall 2014 allows for bold prints that stand alone, all on their own! Whether they are novelty prints, like the fun red and black Saint Laurent mini, bold and eye-catching like the Sonia Rykiel sweater dress, or large and floral like the scarves we saw at Burberry Prorsum, these prints speak for themselves and don’t need to tag team.
Maybe you’re still hesitant and want to keep your matching set conservative. If so, go with plaids in neutral colors. Something like that of Chriselle Lim of The Chriselle Factor. But be sure to add a laid back punch to combat that plaid stiffness. Do so with a bright blouse, a sexy Sophia Webster strappy sandal, or an edgy clutch.
So, feeling inspired? You’re clicks away from making print and pattern play an essential part of your Fall 2014 wardrobe. CROCUS has you covered with these beautiful pieces from Nicole Miller, Shoshanna, Trina Turk, and more!
