Chevron

The Chevron print has been having a moment for the last couple of seasons. It’s gained popularity not only in clothing and accessories, but in home decor as well.   If you are new to wearing patterns, try starting out small with a versatile accessory like a colorful chevron print infinity scarf.  It’s the perfect way to test drive a trend without buyer’s remorse!

Color-Block

Okay, Color-Block technically is not a print, but it is one of the most popular new color trends.  While most outfits start with a predominant base color and then layer accent colors or a print on top, Color-blocking goes full-force color.  The best way to try this trend is with solid color items that you may already have hanging in your closet, like the blue skirt & green top combo as pictured above.   Go for it and you’ll definitely get lots of looks in your bold and colorful outfit!

Ikat

Like Chevron, the Ikat pattern has evolved from just clothing and accessories to home goods. It has a variety of variations, and looks just as striking in black and white as it does in color.   An Ikat skirt looks great paired with a solid colored top and is an excellent way to dip your toe in the pattern trend.

Geometric

Shapes aren’t just for artists and toddler toys! Geometric shapes are making a big splash in the fashion and accessory world this year. From squares &  rectangles to triangles & circles, shapes and colors are being used to create dramatic prints on clothing and accessories. A bold, geometric top is a fun way to add a trendy kick to your summer time wardrobe.
