Geometric and Kaleidoscopic Patterns Come Alive in Wardrobes!Posted on Tuesday, November 29th, 2011 at 11:14 AM

Here is one class, you do not want to miss! This is the one time, when the word “geometry’“does not give palpitations (just me then?)! The term “geometry” is akin to a pattern, or design depicting nonrepresentational shapes such as lines, circles, ellipses, triangles, rectangles, and polygons.
Marie Claire offers some great tips on how to get the look:
- Build ensembles like collage with each piece offering a new pattern
- Pair busy scarf -print tops with large scale print bottoms or vice versa
- Stick to sophisticated silk fabrics in loose blouson silhouettes
I will suggest that these obvious and vibrant prints be mixed with moderate accessories to strike the right balance.
Pretty calculating in geometric purple! Style your already luxurious handbag by adding a silk scarf-basic or colorful. It adds an even finer (if that’s possible) aura to the item and the overall look.
Invest in colorful clutches! A great geometric patterned dress like this with cut out details and x back strap ‘special effects’ only aims to make you feel ‘larger than life’! Finish off the job with great accessories!
The saturating patterned exhibition of lines is unusual but there’s everything literally attractive about this trend. It will be hard not to stare!
Mix up the Kaleidoscope pencil skirt with denim jacket or with a fun top. If your style is eccentric and your confidence is in tow to pull off the look, then by all means pad up the bold pieces (trousers or skirts with their matching accompanying jackets).
This geometric print silk dress is a great model! The apparent display of alternating pattern of shapes and colors leave only a desirable sensation for geometry in prints! You can pick out a monotone bow (as I did) depending on your outfit , the bow should either be in contrast or in favor of outfit’s color.
In a fashion world of all things “straight” and “skinny”, this minimal wide leg jeans are welcoming! A great time to invest again in bell jeans, or simply whip out and dust off old ones. This black hobo bag is the erfect complement to this casual look.
Style is not limited to outfits! Watch these DIY geometric nail design tutorials below:
Regular shops are stocking up on this trend, it will be hard to miss it! Will you be buying?
