You have probably noticed that department stores, boutiques, and all the fashion magazines are starting to show the new fall clothing. But we here at The Style Duo, are holding on with a tight grip to our summer sundresses and wedge flip flops. We are not ready just yet to invest in the leather blazers, fur vests and sweaters that are out there for Fall 2012 no matter how fabulous they are. So instead we are going to focus on a wonderful trend that we (and other fashion lovers) have found ourselves drawn to this summer- and that is bold geometric prints.

Now we understand that this trend could seem really scary and the last thing we want to do is have our fashion friends run for the hills (and their plain neutral wardrobes) at the mention of this idea but maybe, just maybe, we can think outside the box a little and at least try this wonderfully exciting and yes slightly risky summertime trend.

For years, Emilio Pucci has impressed us with his widely recognizable geometric printed clothing and it seems like many other designers have followed suit this season. Dresses, tunics, halters, pants and bikinis are popping up in colorful prints from ocean blues to bubble gum pinks and gorgeous greens. And just like other summertime thrills like diving in to a swimming pool from the high diving board for the first time or riding the biggest roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure, trying bold geometric prints requires taking a deep breath and just going for it!!!

This Everly printed dress is a definite duo way to embrace geometric designs. Pair it with neutral shoes and bag and chunky jewelry. We are loving everything about this look.

True fashionistas aren’t afraid to try new things. And this Trina Turk one piece with a plunging neckline is a great way to try a bold geometric pattern.

This lovely, easy, breezy Pucci dress is so gorgeous that any fashion scaredy cats out there will have to admit that this could definitely make them want to embrace this bold print trend.

We like the bikini top and we like the printed pants but together it becomes too much of a good thing and our don’t of the week. Be careful not to overdo it!
