Geometric prints had been very big during Autumn of 2020 and are still lingering. We can confidently conclude that this trend isn’t leaving us for a while.

In 2012, Aztec prints became extremely popular and were seen everyone on the streets, the obsession gave way to geometric prints being incorporated in fashion along with some bold and beautiful colors. What one needs to remember while styling a geometric pattern look is to only wear one statement piece, for instance, a trench coat, a shirt, or only trousers, that have the geometric pattern, or else the look would look too complex. Make sure the colors incorporated are complimentary. Just have fun with it!
