The following is a guest post from our friends at FabSugar.
The psychedelic motif of the ’60s and ’70s has transformed into a fresh, modern way to wear prints for Spring 2012. Runways were full of the swirly, kidney-shaped pattern, and designers like Jil Sander, Stella McCartney, Etro and more showed the in-your-face print on dresses, tops, and even jumpsuits.
Paisley has largely Indian and Iranian roots, and interest in the print really flourished after the pilgrimage of the Beatles to India in 1968 (fun fact: it originally started out as a menswear print). Whether you choose a vibrant top or dress, or get a pop of paisley via a silk scarf or pair of earrings, you don’t want to miss out on this playful, totally groovy print.
