Think Florals are best kept for warmer weather? Think again - designers of all stripes sent florals down the runways for Fall 2017. Patterns ranged from overblown upholstery prints to dark hued roses and Asian-inspired floral motifs.

Speaking of camo, this pattern's versatility makes it able to read as somewhat neutral. It has the ability to be mixed and matched with lots of other prints and motifs. It is the mainstay of one of the trends we had projected trends for this season, Winter Soldier.
4. Folk Inspired

Eastern European inspired prints and embellishments. Paisleys, folk florals, and ikats adorn peasant blouses, flowing dresses and accessories. This is a very romantic trend that you can expect to find reaching well into the holiday season. For more insights on this trend, see our Bohemian Rhapsody board.
5. Plaids everywhere!
