Lacoste at New York Fashion Week 2014

Earlier this month, Lacoste presented their Fall/Winter 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week. Some famous fans of Lacoste were spotted right in the front row!

Cara Santana was absolutely chic in a white and camel ensemble while Jesse Metcalf sported a clean classic style. White Lacoste shoes are always a great pick!

Bella Thorne was stunning in this outfit! It’s elegant with a hint of sporty inspiration and her high heel sandals were a perfect match.

2014 Spring Pattern Names: Part II

Here are more pattern options for your 2014 Spring looks! Check out our earlier post on 2014 Spring Pattern Names for a more inspiration!

Plaid or Tartan

This is one of the most recognizable patterns out there! It’s simply vertical and horizontal bands that cross each other, usually in two or more colors. From holiday scarves to punk rock inspired pants, it’s actually quite versatile. Denim tends to be its go-to match, but it can easily be spruced up under a blazer. Actually, it looks pretty amazing as a jacket or blazer as well!

Damask

Damask actually refers to how a piece of fabric is woven. However, it is commonly associated with this kind of pattern; a very stylized design with a mix of curls, flowers, and fluers-de-lis. You’ll see it as very large print or smaller spotted prints. It never really leaves fashion and design. While it’s a favorite among women, it can be refined to a masculine look as well.

Harlequin

Originally, the harlequin print signified jokers, jesters, and clowns on the theater stage. Today, it has become a fashionable print! With it’s theater background it’s widely available in a variety of colors. Don’t mix it up with argyle! Harlequin is made with diamond shapes, but they do not cross each other.

Houndstooth, Dogstooth, or Puppytooth (small version)

Originating in woolen textiles in Scotland, this pattern has become a favorite in all aspects of design! The pattern can be found on pencil skirts for the office, fashion high heel pumps, to a classy arm chair. It’s feminine, but not at all dainty and always manages to make a large comeback in the fashion world. It looks like a broken checkers pattern and, while available in a variety colors, it’s most recognized look is in black and white.
