Take a look inside my wardrobe and you'll see predominantly one-toned pieces. You'll find a sea of classic black, crisp white, and a bit of color. One thing you won't spot a whole lot of? Prints. I'm not necessarily pattern-shy, but they're not something I gravitate toward when I'm shopping for wardrobe staples. That said, this season, I've been feeling inspired to step outside of my comfort zone and give 2019's biggest print trends a try.
Snakeskin is a clear winner right now (just take a look at the street style scene if you need more proof), but I was curious to see which other unique motifs have infiltrated the fashion world. As per usual, my search took me to the treasure trove of inspiration that is Instagram—and hear me out when I say the fashion print trends blowing up on my feed right now are amazing. I'm ready to take a risk and sport them this season… Are you?
Ahead, five fashion print trends to test-drive this season (and beyond).
