On Trend: Geometric Prints

Some prints end up dated; usually today's latest design becomes tomorrow's kitsch. But it feels like we cycle between two basic prints -- floral and geometric -- every few years. This spring is supposed to have a strong 1960s vibe, so it follows that bold geometric prints are on the market.

I can't get enough of these. From basic black and white to a color riot, geometric prints are easy to wear and work into everyday life (unlike this). If you're on board, buy these up now. They'll still be wearable for years. (I've even included some geometric-abstract prints for those of you who loathe stripes.)
