Paisley was big in the 1970s and had a bit of a comeback in the 1990s (not a good phase!) but this spring it’s cool and a great alternative to florals.
Take styling tips from Jil Sander and Stella McCartney and wear your paisley with lots of white in sleek shapes, or make like JW Anderson and Jonathan Saunders and embrace some neon for a modern take on that pattern you see on lots of old blokes’ ties.
