What­ever which way, pat­tern is hip

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

MATHSHASn­ever been one of my strong points, but when it coll i d e s wi t h f a s h i o n , I s o m e h o w man­age to work out my style equa­tions. With de­sign­ers cur­rently reach­ing dizzy heights with zigzags, stripes and pat­terns aplenty, it’s hard not to get car­ried away with a print or 10. I’m not talk­ing mono­chrome stripes and the usual polka dots of the past, but in­stead swirls, lines and loud prints that play tricks with your eyes in au­tum­nal tones of reds, or­anges and navy. Even jewellers are get­ting in on the act with shapes

that are sim­ple yet eye- Prin­ci­ples dress, £35 at Deben­hams catch­ing. Sharp lines and per­fect cir­cles are lead­ing ac­ces­sories into a new genre of jew­ellery that com­pli­ment both day and night dress­ing.

This trend so ob­vi­ously leans on the 70s retro vibe, yet also seems mod­ern day so don’t be too quick to write it off. Team state­ment skirts with muted coloured knits or busy tops with a clas­sic denim midi and you’ll be on a par with Christo­pher Kane and So­nia Rykiel’s muses. Though my bud­get won’t stretch to th­ese beau­ti­fully de­signed clothes, Marks & Spencer and Deben­hams cater just as well with­out hav­ing to spend a for­tune on a trend that will come and go as quickly as the Bri­tish sum­mer.
