10 Ways To Wear Frenetic Patterns


Last night I was asleep in bed when I was awoken not by the sound of four month old babbles, but by the pitter patter of rain drops outside, which, by the way, is a much more rare occurrence in sunny Southern California right now than four month old babbles.  It’s been followed by a gloomy, rainy day which has my mind completely fast forwarding to fall.  With most of the summer sales behind us, I’m excited to start planning my fall looks.  Any trends you’re really excited about?  While bold patterns are nothing new, and many designers chose much more monotone collections this season, there were some really stand-out patterns from Kenzo and Dries Van Noten to Proenza Schouler and Marc by Marc Jacobs that were so wildly frantic they could only be described as frenetic.  Move over graphic, tribal, and watercolor prints, there’s a new print in town.  Here’s how to wear it:

1. Dressed down with a slouchy cardigan and flat shoes via MNZ store


2. As a polished fit and flare dress, ready for a wedding or any other feté via MSGM


3. In a graphic all black and white look via Harpers Bazaar


4. Juxtaposed with light-wash denim via Nordstrom


5. Just a little pop in clutch form via Long Island Prep


6. Office chic with a lace pencil skirt via Diane von Furstenberg


7. Effortlessly with a tee and sunnies via NYFW Street Style


8. As a mini dress in tee shirt form via McQ by Alexander McQueen


9. As a knit skirt (which I desperately want!) via Rag and Bone


10.  All lady-like via Atlantic-Pacific
