I once owned a pair of paisley palazzo pants when I was about 18 years old. I remember being really self conscious wearing these pants to school because they were not exactly the “standard” attire at the time. Now, paisley prints are in abundance on the runways and on the streets. Unlike the 90’s version, paisley prints now are bolder and brighter in color and more sophisticated and less psychedelic.
Emilio Pucci’s Spring 2012 runway collection was a swirl of gypsy-esque frocks.
These paisley oxfords are men’s Etro but how wonderful would they be for a woman?
I think this shirt dress by Clover Canyon is the most versatile silhouette. Drop the waist and let it loose for a more masculine look and cinch it in with a belt to show off your curves. I love how the paisley is contrasted with the stripes.
Last but not least, your iPhone can’t be left out either since dressing your iPhone no a days is just as important as putting on shoes. J.Crew has some really cute ones for only $40.
Don’t shy away this summer from paisley. Stow away the leopard and the floral prints for now and give this new look a try.
