Fashion changes as fast as the weather (and it’s just about as hard to predict!). If the latest runway shows in New York are any indicator, designers have forsaken minimalism and neutrals for bold colors and lots of pattern. Just like Sir Mix-a-Lot, we’re hooked and we can’t stop staring. In clothes, multiple patterns add depth, and at home, layering pattern on pattern amplifies the energy of a space. Here’s a dizzying collection of our favorite patterned pieces. Enjoy!
