On Trend: Geometrically Inclined

EcoSalon: On Trend: Geometrically Inclined

Geometric shapes are the perfect way to add edge to any outfit.

Maybe it’s because I am a graphic designer at heart, but there is something strangely comforting about straight angles and geometric shapes. They are also the perfect way to add edge to any outfit. Match an Aztec-print blouse with a simple black skirt, versatile bag, some great geometric jewelry and a pair of spectacular shoes and you are turning heads.
