#WOTW: Paisley Is The Only Print On Par With Florals
If the return of the 70s is what your sartorial experiments are all about, you’ll be familiar with the paisley print. Frankly, this twirly teardrop print is the only one that has the power to be on par with florals. Last summer, it was THE print everyone explored on runways across the globe. This year, while this print was spotted on Jonathan Saunders, it was majorly seen splashed over menswear clothing thanks to high street brands like H&M.
This classic print has had quite an east-to-west journey before being recognised as a print that exudes excessive boho vibes. Though paisley’s Anglo name is credited to a town in Scotland, it is known to have a legacy in India as well as Iran. The vegetal motif has been a favourite in rock and roll culture — everyone from the Beatles (trivia: John Lennon painted his Rolls Royce with this print) to Prince sported paisley in their hey days.
As a fashion observer, I think it’s a must-have print to have in your wardrobe. If you’re not one to work it in dress or a pair of pants, maybe you could incorporate it via a scarf or even a headband. It’s hip and happening, me thinks!
