True, all-black everything will never go out of style. But this season, the savviest dressers are eschewing minimalism in favor of a more playful look, courtesy of clashing, riotous prints. But don’t be daunted by the idea of dabbling with colors, even if it’s been a while; since anything goes here, it’s remarkably difficult to get it wrong. Whether you’re drawn to Marni’s bold hues or Prada retro-inspired designs, the wealth of prints on the FW18 runways means there’s something for everyone. Still apprehensive? Dip your toe into the trend with one mixed-pattern piece, like a cozy knit by Prada or Saint Laurent, and balance it with denim, or try a tonal clash as demonstrated by Giedre Dukauskaite.
