Over the last few seasons, patterns inspired by animal skins have been trending and are continuing to remain an important part of current garment designs.
Once a signifier of more-traditional fashions, lace and its embroidered cousin, eyelet, evolved from the rocker 1980s Lita Ford styles into designs that embrace the romantic side of fashion.
On the Dot With Retro Stripes
Big trends in polka dots and stripes see these fashion staples as modern takes on 1990s-era textiles with bright circles catching the eye or through colorful lines on ribbed fabrics.
In activewear, textiles have taken notes from the animal-print and tie-dye trends yet have also expanded to include florals in bold colors guaranteed to create waves at the pool and make gains at the gym.
Whether using subdued hues or vibrant colors, today’s florals see great detail in textile design through exquisitely printed petals or tiny flower details.
