Beautiful Teardrops

By  | 


Will You Be Going Crazy For Paisley? Paisley, the classic heritage print, is making its way back into the limelight in 2012! The twisted teardrop, named after a town in Scotland (the town of Paisley), hit the fashion scene when it first made its debut in the late 60′s/early 70′s. There was a resurgence of paisley again in the late 80′s early 90′s; and 2012 is set to be the biggest comeback yet, with paisley hitting runways around the globe!


Sourced: Love it or hate it (I personally love paisley) there will be no avoiding this print-astic pattern as it swirls its way into spring. The great thing about fashion in 2012 is there really are no ‘rules’.  If you’re feeling bold and confident you can mix your paisley with another fab print like stripes or polka dots. Who says you can’t combine your prints?!  If you tend to lean towards a safer option, combine your paisley with a single coloured piece of clothing, or just add a dash of paisley to your wardrobe with a simple accessory such as a scarf, or if you’re lucky enough to find them in paisley, a pair of shoes.

Below are a few of my key paisley picks.  Keep an eye out in-store and online for your key paisley picks for Spring/Summer 2012 and leave a comment below to let me know where you’ve discovered your ‘paisley fashion fav’!
