Trend Report: Southwest Prints
s fashion fans, you know that most trends find their beginning on the runway, before trickling down to the red carpet, the streets, and beyond. Now, while many trends don’t find an audience, the latest trend to pop up on our radar—Southwest prints—is definitely making waves thanks to top tastemakers like Gwen Stefani and Nicole Richie. So, are you ready to try this trend for yourself? If the answer is a resounding yes, make sure you click through to today’sTrend Reportfor all the need-to-know details on who is wearing this look, how they’re wearing it, and how you can try it! Read on!
One of the things we like most about this trend is that it transcends the seasons. Take, for example, the ensemble that Eniko Mihalik was spotted wearing at Paris Fashion Week. Her outfit—a printed , a black tee, and red ballet flats—is chic and summery, but it is also simple enough that a few small additions won’t make it look bulky. Eniko can easily add a slouchy cardigan and a pair of opaque black tights on cold fall days. To make this look your own, pick up a skirt like Proenza Schouler’s (5) or Pixie Market’s Triangle Printed Skirt ().
Now that fall has arrived, chunky knit sweaters are not just a luxury, they are a necessity, which is why we love the way Gwen Stefani has been trying this trend. Gwen picked out a southwest-print sweater and paired it with a leather bomber jacket, skinny jeans, and flat loafers. The result? An ensemble that is part preppy, part rocker, and part free spirit, but also perfect for running errands as we move further into fall. To try this ultra-cool look for yourself, pick out a sweater like Sandro’s (5) or Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply’s (4).
Another thing we like about this trend is that it is so versatile—you can dress it up or dress it down. With regard to the latter, we love the way Jaime King has been working the look. Jaime was spotted out and about recently wearing a black tank, skinny jeans, and sneakers. Her ensemble is casual, definitely, but with the addition of a chunky printed cardigan, it quickly elevates itself from simple to stand-out. We particularly like the way Jaime chose a cardigan with plenty of color—this definitely catches the eye! To make this look your own, pick up ASOS’s (.57) or Isabel Marant’s (,070).
Last, but certainly not least, we turn to Nicole Richie, who wore a pair of printed while out and about in Los Angeles recently. Now, printed jeans can be a tricky look to pull off, but not if you take notes from Nicole. By pairing her jeans with pieces of the same color—black—and by choosing simple silhouettes, Nicole has created an effortlessly chic look with a slight edge. We particularly love that this outfit easily transitions from day to night. To try this look for yourself, pick up ASOS’s (.11) or As Is’s ().
