Fashion embraces mismatched prints & patterns for eccentricity
Implications - It used to be a fashion faux pas to wear prints, patterns, textures and colors that don't go together. Now, clashing is not only okay, it's de rigueur. Runways and editorials are showcasing outfits in which the more eccentrically assembled they are, the better. Although toned down for everyday life, this direction's mish-mashing prints and colors, and divergence from polished monotone styles, conveys a relaxed attitude, allowing consumers to simply enjoy and have fun with fashion without over-thinking it.
