Bold Geometric prints can be seen everywhere and they are making quite a statement both on and off the runway. As with any trend, adding just enough to your wardrobe is the trick. If you don't want to jump "all in", you can always try out the trend by donning a scarf printed with bold geometric shapes and take it from there. Look how effortlessly chic our own Managing Editor, Serena, looked in her Maggy London dress during the Fashion Forward Conference. I love how the dress gathers at the waist to give definition and a little extra style.
Here are some looks I have my eye on:
As with any trend, what goes around comes around, I thought I had enough of geometrics in the 80's but this year's styles are bold all while maintaining a level of sophistication.
In my opinion bold, geometric prints work well on sheath dresses, blouses paired with solid skirts, as well as skirts cut with a simple shape. You want the prints to be proportionate to your shape and accent your curves, not add to them. Using belts to draw clothes close to your body will ensure the big, bold prints don't overwhelm your figure. Still not sure? Check out the adorable ballet flats below!
I love how I found bold, geometric prints at all different price points, on everything from beach tunics (for those already planning their winter getaway!) to Dolman blouses. You'll be sure to easily take this hot runway look to the office, date night, or wearing the many hats we juggle as stylish moms.
I like how each brand interpreted the runway looks to make wearing bold, geometric well...wearable for regular women, just like me and you.
