What Are Geometric Prints? 


Geo prints are repetitive prints of geometric shapes that can be colourful, bold and eye catching or subtle and sophisticated. Using a myriad of shapes like stripes, triangles, houndstooth, squares or cuboids, geometric prints contain complex symmetry and interlocking patterns to bring that real point of difference. These shapes offer dimension and depth to an overall outfit, so naturally, a geo print should be the centrepiece of your look, pairing with plainer pieces to let your geometric print pattern do all the talking.  

Geometric shapes have been around for decades, and now, they’re back with a bang – so style your geometrics the Joe Browns way – all in this 5-minute style guide.

5 TIPS FOR STYLING GEOMETRIC PRINTS


1. Start small with monochrome 


If it’s your first time stepping up to geo style, then start small with classic, monochrome pieces such as houndstooth. This black and white style is classic, often has a structured shape to it and can be styled up or down. We love a good houndstooth pattern here at Joe Browns – so we’ve definitely got some styles you’ll love!  

If it’s your first time, consider trying a houndstooth coat or blazer and pair it with blacks, whites and neutrals for a simple outfit that exudes sophistication. We also have houndstooth tailored trousers which are perfect for any occasion from the office to happy hour! 

Alternatively, if you’re looking to jump in at the deep end and keep it black and white, try a structured pinafore or a jacquard long-sleeved dress with flattering ruching detail.

2. Move Up to Neutrals and Chocolates 


If you’re ready to start experimenting with colour but want to play it cool, keep it classic with our neutral geometric patterns. With a gorgeous caramel and chocolate palette, these prints give a gorgeous Parisian vibe that pair beautifully with denim, creams, blacks and navy blues, making these pieces super versatile when it comes to styling them up or down. 

From gorgeous button through blouses with collars to a flattering geometric dress with side ruching, find your favourite shape and get ready to rock some geo prints! If you find yourself wanting to jazz up an everyday outfit, why not throw on our Geo Balloon Sleeve Cardigan? In gorgeous grey hues, you’re able to pair this with virtually any plain outfit of any colour to instantly elevate your look.

3. Step Into Colour 


Do you like a bit of colour in your style? Our Rita Geo Print Shirt Dress has a stunningly classic silhouette that perfectly blends vintage charm with retro pattern. With a waist tie, collar and button-through style, this midi dress is timeless and easily styled with black shoes and accessories to pull out the deeper tones of the dress, letting the white colour in the palette really shine through for a crisp, expertly styled look.

4. All-Out Colour 


Tunic lovers, we’ve not forgotten about you! Our Funky Jacquard Layered Top is a must-have if you want to start experimenting with retro geos. With burgundy, purple and pink tones on a dark base and classic silhouette, wear with your favourite jeans or leggings for an easy go-to style with some pizzazz.  

We’re also loving the Kara Printed Jersey Dress thanks to its skater style shape, high neck and long sleeves. Jersey dresses are naturally super stretchy and designed to flatter any figure without being restrictive – plus, with this fantastic geo print, we don’t think this dress can get any better!

5. What to Wear with Geo Prints 


So you’ve found the geo piece you want to wear – how do you style it? Back with plains of course! With monochrome or houndstooth, we love styling this with bold knits to add an eye-catching pop of colour to bring a real point of difference to the entire look.  

When it comes to neutrals and chocolates, we love a suede or leather jacket to add to the edge. Classic and timeless, this is a look that’ll never go out of style. All you need to do is add your favourite jeans and you’re ready to hit the streets.  

When it comes to all-out bold colours, try a simple black or white pairing to let the geo print do all the talking, however, we also love colour matching wherever possible, so our Kara Jersey Dress goes really well with a beautiful berry colour.
