In the Guest Chair: Pattern Observer Takes on Fashion Week

We are In the Guest Chair with Michelle from Pattern Observer today! She has been keeping her eye on Fashion Week and developed this special stripe post just for Love.Inspire.Create. readers!

From Michelle:

Hello! This is Michelle from Pattern Observer and I am delighted to share my passion for print and pattern with you today. 

The spring fashion shows recently wrapped up, and one of my favorite trends from the runway is the evolution of the stripe. Stripes are not new to the scene, but have evolved this season with a focus on boldness and texture. Bold stripes fall into two categories: multi-colored brights or over-sized, two color stunners. For something a little less eye-popping, texture is used to tone down bold stripes and add an organic feel. Whichever way you choose to wear them, stripes are definitely here to stay!
