Style Guide : These 6 Prints Will Never Become Obsolete in Fashion

If the tremendous success of Alessandro Michele’s Gucci has taught us anything about fashion, it’s that we’re at an era when more is more is more in style. High fashion today is all about maximalism, with print mixing, large logos, and infinite decorations.

Even though we tend to go toward the traditional and stylish side of style, eschewing all the frills, we love spotlighting a single beautiful pattern within an ensemble. That being said, not every print (paisley, for example!) is deserving of being the center point of an outfit, which is why we thought we’d make it simple by sharing the classic prints that will never go out of style. Scroll through for Teeanime’s favorite 6 timeless patterns, then browse the article for something printed and quirky for your own wardrobe.

1. Floral

Florals aren’t typically eye-catching, but the correct ones may be edgy and hip. Consider Proenza Schouler’s flowery gowns or Givenchy’s charming rose patterns.

2. Polka Dots

This iconic print is experiencing a tremendous return in popularity, and we’re not mad about it.

3. Stripes

Stripes are one of our favorite designs, and they’re also one of the simplest to achieve. We adore a traditional black and white stripe, but we’ve recently been drawn to more vibrant rainbow variants.

4. Camouflage

Camo is one of the most daring prints on this list, and it is not for the faint of heart. Nonetheless, it’s a print that has endured the test of time, with designers presenting new takes on the style season after season.

5. Animal Print

never go out of style

Leopard is having a moment right now, but animal print in general (leopard, cheetah, zebra, snakeskin, even butterflies!) will never go out of style. Wear this design with accessories like a cheetah print coat (we love this Altuzzara one), a zebra mule, or a snakeskin bootie.

6. Plaid

never go out of style

Plaid is probably one of the first patterns that come to mind when you think of a classic print. Last year, plaid blazers were all the rage, and the print will still be a big deal this fall. However, plaid is such a classic that it will never go out of style.
