Style Glossary: Paisley

Miss Selfridge at ShopStyle

Last summer I told you that paisley prints were back and this Spring they're around more than ever.

Paisley is defined as, "A swirled pattern characterized by a teardrop shape. Popularized in Paisley, Scotland, during the 1800s, this design was originally an adaptation of a spade pattern found on Indian shawls. Today, paisley decorates everything from sheetings to fine dresses and always makes a statement of rich elegance."
