As saturated as the fashion industry is these days, it seems like you could take just about any print or colour and find enough evidence in magazines and celebrity fashion to label it a fashion trend. However, I think the latest trend, 1970s-inspired geometric prints, is really taking off–Fashion Week street style has been full of bold retro colours and busy patterns. If you’re not quite ready to buy a paisley playsuit, though, wearing shoes with striking designs is a great way to ease yourself into the trend. Here are a few shoes and bags from Sarenza.co.uk that I’d love to put in my closet!!
These Fly London shoes are a bit out-there so I’m not sure if they’re for me…but I can’t deny that they fit perfectly into the 70s geometric trend! If Velma from Scooby Doo was looking for a sexy wedge to match that burgundy skirt of hers, I’m sure this would be the one she’d go for, no?!?
Next up are these totally wearable Annabel Winship shoes! Annabel Winship has a ton of bold designs that pack a punch without getting too crazy. This peacock print is the perfect example…
This list wouldn’t be complete without a pair of Missoni shoes! The iconic zigzag pattern that Missoni’s known for is exactly what this trend is all about…in fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if geometric prints have seen a spark in popularity simpy BECAUSE of Missoni.
Of course, bags can’t be left out! This MySuelly bag is a bit more subtle with its retro tweed, so it’s perfect to balance out those crazy printed outfits. It’s also quite roomy for a clutch bag, which is always a plus in my book…anyone else constantly find themselves in serious crises before heading out trying to fit your lipstick, mirror, cell phone, AND your keys inside your bag?
I know, I know. When you think “Reebok,” the first thing that comes to mind isn’t usually “cutting edge fashion trends.” But this Reebok rucksack is definitely a stylish option for your gym clothes or textbooks. No reason to keep using your bag from third year or, if you’re like me, plastic grocery sacs to carry your things!
So what do you think…totally groovy or fashion flop??
Have a great week!
