Patterns have erupted in the stores this year. Each new pattern brings a bold flavor to fashion. I used to think I could never wear patterns. I thought they were too busy, too bold, or too obnoxious for me. I have been transformed though. I now own about 10 striped tops and countless other patterns. Throwing in a new pattern to your wardrobe is a great way to spruce up your closet for the summer months ahead.
