Last weekend I went to the mall to throw my money at every retailer in sight. By the time I made the marathon from shoes and athletic gear to women’s and men’s clothes, I had picked up on one dominating trend: patterned logos and letters on solid shirts, pants, and even shoes.
City, team, and college names, along with quotes and logos were designed with florals, stripes, polka dots, animal prints, and other patterns. Of course, I had to feed my shopping addiction and buy an inspirational shirt with floral letters. I even bought my dog a hoodie with patterned letters. This is a trend I only see growing.
