Straight lines and patterns have multiplied over all of the runways this season. In light of the colorful spring clothes making their way into the BTV Stella-Mae store every day, I decided to experiment with this trend and see if it could find its place into my wardrobe.
My Inspiration: Narciso Rodriguez
My Way: Sugarlips Stripe Skirt (Also pictured are the Timberland Marge Wood Heel Sandal and East Africa Company Recycled Shoe Bracelets)
Instead of all-over color, I opted for wearing this beautifully striped high-rise maxi skirt with a neutral top and cardigan, giving it a clean look – clearly emphasizing the fun-yet-sophisticated pops of color in the skirt’s flattering diagonal print.
My Inspiration: J. Mendel
My Way: Audrey 3+1 Tribal Print Tank (UO Denim Leggings & Timberland Marge Wood Heel Sandal)
This tank is a perfect transition-to-spring and transition-to-summer piece as one could where it with both jeans and a denim jacket or with a cute neutral pair of shorts and sandals!
My Inspiration: Ohne Titel
My Way: RD International Red Stripe Sweater (Also picturing the Timberland Shorham Desert Boot)
I found myself imagining a day at the beach with this sweater and shorts acting as bathing suit cover-ups, or even during crispy spring mornings pairing this summery sweater with a pair of jeans to stay warm.
While I thought it would be difficult to teach myself how to wear these bold colors and geometrical patterns with clothes already hanging in my closet, I actually found this trend to be very easy to add to my everyday wardrobe. From color blocking to African-inspired geometrical prints, there is a piece from this trend for everyone.
