Geometric fashion takes a triangular interest. Learn how to wear triangle prints in a jiffy and take your outfit from sad to rad.
Triangle prints don’t get as much time in the fashion limelight in comparison to, say, polka dot prints. Circles and squares appear to be an easy favorite but familiarity can breed predictability and in the fashion circle, we do love us some out-of-the-rectangular print alternative every once in a while.
While triangle motif on clothing may come in a single big statement triangle combined with animal or some other print style, they also come in repetitive designs featuring similar sized triangles or in various sizes and colors as a nod to the abstract fashion trend.
