Some see it as retro, but we see it as modern; geometric prints are becoming all the more compelling in circles, triangles, diamonds and other abstractions. Want to play with these expressive shapes seen all over the Fall/Winter 2012 runways? Let us help you get the look with options that we’re simply mesmerized with. Warning: this post may give the illusion of looking through a 1960s psychedelic kaleidoscope.
[Club Monaco Trudy Dress, $198.50 via Shopbop.com]
A flirty dress with an accentuated waist is perfect for the office. Pair it with heels and a worn leather crossbody bag for a night out.
[V-Neck Geo Top, $19.80 via Forever21.com]
Although this tee and denim combination may at first give the aesthetic of being understated, the pattern certainly works the eye up and down!
[Meeting in St. Moritz Skirt, $47.99 via ModCloth.com]
Balance a playful pattern in basic black and white. Try a pop of color with your blouse or accessories.
[J.Crew Collection Cafe Capri in Silk Scarf Print, $298 via J.Crew.com]
Keep your look preppy and clean with a tailored blouse on top (p.s. – this same print is available in a jacket too!).
Splurge alert: Jonathan Saunders is THE master of geometry. With styles like these, we bet he aced his mathematics course.
[J.Crew Pop Art Polka Dot Shrunken Blazer, $198 via J.Crew.com]
Classic pieces in statement prints are always a hit- get yours now before they’re all gone.
[Zara Jacquard Loom Trousers, $79.90 via Zara.com]
Jacquard + geometric pants = the double whammy of trends. Add a metallic sheen, and they are spot-on for evening.
[Zara Quilted Leather City Bag, $159 via Zara.com]
A basic black bag is both sleek and functional, but the quilted rectangles add a certain sophisticated edge.
[Vince Camuto Architectural Cuff, $78 via Shoptheshoebox.com]
A cut out cuff is a brilliant way to dip your toes in the trend without trying it on apparel. We love the color presentation of this piece.
