Dipping your toe into the world of paisley? Here are 10 highstreet finds for you

Treat yo’self.

PAISLEY WAS ALWAYS a pattern I associated with old Polaroid photos and weathered family albums; a design, in other words, which was synonymous with the 1970s.

Sure, it continued to find its way onto men’s ties regardless of the decade, but that, naturally, did little to convince me it was a pattern I wanted to incorporate into my wardrobe rotation.


To me, it seemed dated and headache-inducing, and… well look, it turns out I was wrong, wasn’t I? 

The high street is currently awash with stunning paisley designs – none of which conjure images of dusty curtains or dated throws.

So, if you’re on the hunt for a statement piece in paisley, or simply want to introduce the pattern into your wardrobe for the first time, we’ve picked our favourites on the highstreet right now.
