From polka dots to plaids, florals to stripes, spring runways seem to be all about patterns. In the midst of all these options, Urban Chic wants to know why we should only ever have to choose one? While a monochromatic policy may have been advocated in the past, the latest trends this year are all about layering varied and contrasting patterns to create eye-popping ensembles. This season, more really is better, and what CHIC girl can’t appreciate that?
Some of our favorite designers this year are wholeheartedly embracing this playful mentality, offering us a number of different prints to pair with one another in unexpected ways.
While Nanette Lepore’s Rouge Jacket in cobalt stands on its own as a perfect piece to throw on as the weather gets warmer, when combined with Rebecca Taylor’s Pin Dot Runway Dress you’ll be sure to stand out amongst the crowd.
Never one to shy way from lively patterns, Diane von Furstenberg’s Julian Minipearl Dress in fountain red certainly follows suit. Pair with one of our many Virginia Johnson scarves for a lively twist on an old classic.
The Tulip Cami in purple from Rebecca Taylor looks great with everything from skinny jeans to a pencil skirt. But why not try it with Nannette Lepore’s Captain’s Pant in cobalt for a more daring choice to run about town.
Perhaps what we love most about this trend is the freedom and originality it inspires. So mix it up, break the rules, and as always, stop by any Urban Chic location to keep yourself in style.
