Time for a little catwalk talk: Most trends stem from the “catwalk” season by season. Before we’re even ready to accept summer is over and fall is on it’s way, another season of high-fashion trends are on the way. If you do a little research, you can copy the trends and turn them into your style.
This summer was all about the power of prints. We saw head-to-toe stripes, florals, dots, zig-zags, and wacky shapes. And we saw mixtures we could never think possible. But thanks to the catwalk, we knew prints were “it.”
My approach: Observe, and follow the trends, keeping in mind personal taste. If you skimmed my closet today, you could tell I definitely fell into the print trap this summer, but hopefully in a subtle way. I have bold prints, yet simple colors. Below, I feature a Banana Republic shirt that I have worn on its own, under a blazer, and with a cardigan, and in every case the print says it all.
Now go dig out those prints you’ve been hiding in your closet! It’s time to bring the catwalk to real life.
