It sounds like a color but it is actually a print that started in home goods. Here is the pattern defined by Wikipedia:

Paisley or Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the buta or boteh, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian origin.

So actually, it is decorated gourds in various motifs. Even though, paisley has Persian origins, it was actually was named from a town in Western Scotland, where it was printed. The pattern first made the leap from home goods to fashion in the 1970s, and then returned briefly in the 1990s. So, it seems to reclaim the spotlight every 20 years, making its return this year right on schedule. How does one wear a pattern that sounds like a color in daily life? Should you add it to your wardrobe?


I would like to say paisley is a easy pattern but it has strong roots in the bohemian scene and hence for people who have a fondness for bohemian style. If you are like me and just love patterns then buy away. I have a orange paisley in my closet already.  However, if you want to add paisley for a limited time, I suggest you stick to accessories instead of clothing.

  • For punks and rockers add a paisley scarf in dark or neutral colors. 
  • For classic, a bag featuring the print in a thick fabric can add depth to your outfit.
  • For casual, there are slip on shoes with the pattern that could perk up your outfit.

Other styles like Vintage and Glam can wear dresses with the print. 

As always share your paisley outfits on instagram with #paisleypower and you could be featured.

Happy Monday,

Yvette ?
