Paisley is one of the oldest and most enduring patterns in the world. It has been used for thousands of years in both Eastern and Western cultures, but its origins are murky. There are several theories about where this popular print came from, but the most likely explanation is that it was inspired by nature. Paisley has been in fashion since the 1960s. It was popularized by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin in their collections in the early ’60s, but it wasn’t until later that decade that it became a staple of hippie culture. Paisley became popular because it looks good on everyone! In fact, paisley was recently featured in Vogue magazine as one of the top trends for spring/summer 2020. It doesn’t matter if you have a slim body type or if you have curves — paisley will flatter your figure no matter what. This pattern is timeless: can be worn with jeans, skirts, shorts and suits without looking dated or out-of-date, so keep this trend going until 2023 and beyond!
