The Looks & Trends – Paisley Print

So as it was the first official day of summer yesterday, its time it kick off the start of a new season with the paisley trend! Yes bandanas is all I think about when I see a paisley pattern but its the girly innovations that makes the trend exciting to wear. In-your-face patterns like large print paisley prints are enough of a statement but when you double it up as a trousers and top set just like Jessie j did, it really does it justice.

The paisley trend on the catwalk!

The paisley resembles a twisted teardrop originated in India but the western name came from a central scottish town, where these designs were produced. This particular trend is so exciting to wear because this design is so versatile; so many variations of paisley can be printed on different materials. This creates rooms for imagination of the designers for the catwalk, to go crazy with the fit of the pieces combined with how extravagant the paisley pattern is. You can now wear paisley and not feel you are caught up in the trend but make it simple and let the pattern do the talking!

The paisley trend on men!

Men can definitely rock this trend and make their look as versatile as women can. Not only are shops like Urban Outfitters making casual t-shirts out this pattern, the catwalk does not shy away from the bold patterns and colours, as a sophisticated suit.
