Big and bold combinations

Its always around in some capacity, from season to season there’ll be a stripe or two, a polka dot and even a check. But recently it seems the good ol’ geo is getting a little bolder, a little more out there and even when in the standard black and white, there’s an impact being made and a statement being said.

Even simple geo prints are being teamed with more intricate florals or with a pop of colour which adds intrigue and appeal. Although wearing an all over bold stripe might be daunting for some, finding smaller pieces to go with colour blocking or quite simply a pair of jeans and flats is an easy way to dip a toe into this trend pool.
