Paisley, the power print of the 70s, has undergone a sartorial revival for the new season, transforming itself into a must-have trend that’s nothing short of stylish. From silk blouses to sun dresses, we take a look at how to wear paisley prints for SS18.
1. The Paisley Blouse
While its bohemian roots may make it seem as though paisley prints are more suited to off-duty days, the right styling can make the trend work for more formal settings too. Need proof? Crafted from whisper-weight silk, this semi-sheer blouse is equally chic when worn with smart black trousers and kitten heels for the office, as it is dressed down with jeans at the weekend.
2. The Paisley Midi Dress
Taking its inspiration from vintage silhouettes, the paisley-print dress perfectly encapsulates the free-spirited feel of the season. Bring it into your spring style rotation with this must-have midi, featuring tonal blue patterns with feminine frills and mother-of-pearl button details. Wear yours with a straw circle bag and simple sandals in metallic gold.
3. The Paisley Scarf
If you’re looking for a more subtle way into the trend, then make the paisley scarf your it-accessory of the new season. Adorned with artful prints in vibrant shades of pink, this lightweight layer is a stylish way to add a touch of colour and pattern to your outfits – we like it best worn with denim, or tied onto the handles of our tote bags.
4. The Paisley Top
As the weather starts to warm up for spring, paisley prints are an easy way to transition between the seasons – and there’s little effort required. Swap your knits for this bold printed top, cut with a flattering v-shaped necklace. Tuck it into a pair of cropped jeans, finishing the look with laser-cut loafers for a simple yet stylish look.
