We all remember looking through this object called a kaleidoscope as children and seeing gorgeous colourful patterns changing shapes as we spun the little device around. This nostalgic childhood memory has turned into a full-fledged fashion trend this year.
Kaleidoscopic prints are the fashion statement this season. Starting from bikinis all the way upto full-length maxis, you can spot them everywhere. This year's Spring/Summer runways also saw a horde of these patterns and prints all in big and small ways.
Bold mirror image prints characterise most of the kaleidoscopic prints. They can be strategically placed with a combination of contrasting colours or just be small repetitive prints all over. They can be quite a tricky trend to pull off. You don't necessarily have to dress in kaleidoscopic prints from head to toe; but even if you choose to, there is absolutely no harm in doing that.
According to your figure, you could wear strategically placed kaleidoscopic print and pair it up with other solid colours. Simplistic is the way to go when it comes to this pattern, less is more and concentrating on prints would help more than silhouettes.
Monochromatic and metallic colour palettes work well with this trend. The accessorising also is best kept at minimal with shades from the pattern. Nudes and neutrals work best as shoes while wearing kaleidoscopic prints.
If you think of mixing and matching prints, then always opt for colour coordinating the outfit instead of contrasting colour prints. Basically, this trend needs to be a part of your wardrobe before this season comes to an end. Do let us know what you think of this trend and if you would give it a shot at all.
