We all know conversational prints have been big this season, but what’s on the way for Fall 2018? And which conversational prints are creating the most conversation? Let’s take a look at 2018 prints.
Floral is a classic pattern, but this year it has been infused with a folksy, Americana twist. J Mendel’s embroidered dress with ruffle detailing on the sleeve features a beautiful floral pattern that looks like they sprouted from the desert sands, and Nicole Miller’s floral pattern looks like Alice in Wonderland meets Western movie meets fashion. Rachel Zoe’s folksy floral would look right at home at a prairie themed dance, and Zoc Posen’s flutter sleeves and small floral pattern looks like it could twirl for days. Tory Burch’s adorable folksy floral looks like the drawing book of a botanist, and the dress is perfect for collecting seashells on the beach while studying oceanic ecosystems.

Herringbone is a classic and sophisticated print. Chanel’s herringbone jumpsuit looks fortified, perfect for a chilly winter, and Missoni’s herringbone jacket is ideal for a blustery fall day. Maggie Marilyn utilizes the smallest herringbone to create a dizzying effect, while Sally LaPointe’s metallic tunic and trousers are both futuristic and classic in herringbone.

Designers went wild this year with leopard print. Temperley London and Adam Lippes created simple dresses, while Versace stepped it up a notch and created multiple garments with this fantastic print. Nili Lotan’s leopard trousers are perfect for a brunch date, and Dsqaured2’s leopard jacket is a show stopper.

Summery floral prints have been popular, even in the coldest months. Adam Lippes uses a smaller, bright blue flower that creates a lot of warmth when paired with white, while Carolina Herrera’s floral print looks like sun bursts on a pink background. Gucci and Brooks Brothers play with roses, and Sachin & Babi sport some fantastic tropical flowers.
Stay summery with these fabrics:
Not all stripes are equal, and that’s just how designers like it this year. Carolina Herrera’s fur coat uses a variety of sizes when it comes to stripes, while Sachin & Babi utilizes a gradient. Tome’s wide leg pants are well suited to the stripes, and Maggie Marilyn’s matching set looks sharp with uneven stripes.
