Shapes and angles: making geometric work for you
Geometry class may not have been your favourite subject at school, but it’s time to re-think all that because this shape-driven trend is making a big comeback, and this time, we’re sure you’ll love it! From high fashion runways to the furniture shows of New York, this bold, contemporary look has been making a splash this season – think angular forms, repeating patterns and oversized checks.
Here are our tips on how to get the geometric look:
- Triangles, cubes, hexagons, squares and diamonds… pull out your old maths text books and re-discover these old friends.
- Geometric style is all about making a statement, so forget pastels and go for contrasting bright colours or classic black and white.
- This look works best in a modern setting. It perfectly complements mid-century and contemporary styles.
- Be careful not to overboard! Geometric pieces should be a feature, so make sure they aren’t competing for attention. Pair a checked jacket with a plain t-shirt, or liven up a conservatively designed room with a patterned rug.
