Your lifestyle, your quirk
There are so many fabulous fashion trends going on right now, it may be hard to choose when it comes to putting together your fall wardrobe. If you have an all-time favorite or a signature look, it may be easy to make decisions, but if you’re like me and like more than one trend or have an eclectic personal style of dress, paisley is a print to consider.
Although paisley is a distinctive print and can have a look all its own, it’s also a great way to work several of the current fashion trends going on. You can even work more than one at the same time. For example, a paisley pussy bow blouse hits several trends all in one shot. One other very cool thing about paisley is this print works for both men and women. Since it has a feminine and a masculine vibe, the trend combinations are endless, and you will probably come up with several on your own.
If you’re just a fan of interesting prints, your luck is obvious: you can go with a large or small paisley print and call it a day. Both sizes are showing up on the catwalk and magazine on fall clothing, accessories, and footwear. For women, both sizes of paisley make a pretty print option to work several trends. Paisley has a retro hippie vibe, but it also works for the ladylike, menswear, or boho chic looks. For men, it’s sort of a no-brainer because small paisley prints on ties, pocket squares, and other menswear accessories is practically tradition
One idea for fellow fashionistas on a budget is to pair your solid fall separates with pieces in paisley prints you may already have in your closet, since this was a popular fabrication over the warmer months. Or you can flip that idea and add a few fall pieces in paisley print to basics in solid colors you already have. Wool and paisley print is an interesting and classic look, and it also looks nice with khaki, denim, and other fabrics.
Since mixing patterns is another hot trend right now, go ahead and toss paisley into the mix. Try mixing paisley print sizes together. You can do this with accessories or clothing. Don’t worry about matching colors; either pair your paisley with plaid, polka dots stripes, and floral prints.
