Paisley is one of those timeless prints that manages to feel both classic and modern. Traditionally, the droplet shaped print was used in Persian and Indian designs, in bright colors. It’s now made in just about every size and color imaginable, and the pattern is perfect for wearing in the day with a sleeveless maxi dress or making a statement with a silk dress at night. With its exotic, royal background, a paisley dress will make you feel like a princess.
For the daytime, neutral colors are always a great choice. Give your wardrobe some sparkle with a striking Alfani short sleeve dress, complete with flattering V-neck and eye-catching gold, peach, nude and tan paisley print. Wear with nude shoes in any style, from platforms to peep toes, and some wooden bangles to make the paisley dress stand out.
For something a little brighter, opt for a bright blue CLONE Alfani design. These sleeveless dresses come in a variety of shades, but blue is the perfect choice for adding a blast of color to your day. With over-the-hip draping and a big, bold paisley print, the paisley dress is sure to make you stand out. Keep your shoes nude and your hair loose for an understated finish.
