A closer look: Heather

It’s Fall preview week on Inside Stitch, and this first pattern packs a colorful punch. We’re starting with the playful polka dots and royal tones of Heather. Our classic paisleys and blossoms are offered in a very complementary cast of bright evergreen, teal, lavender, lively citron, rich pinks and purples. We invited Liz, our resident Trend Reporter, to share more on our fresh batch of colors.


What inspired it …

“This print is bustling with statement-making paisleys in a palette fashioned after the pretty peacock. Shades of purple and pink accent teal tones in an expressive, exuberant and exciting design. The interior is a happy spread of colorful, playful polka dots.”

How to wear it …

“Heather screams for a denim ensemble. Pair a darker-wash jean with a lighter chambray shirt as your base, and then layer on a pop of color with teal and purple bangles, a shimmery statement necklace or an oversized knit scarf. Button this look up by pairing it with black pants and a tailored jacket. If there’s a chill in the air, throw a crew neck sweater on top for a fresh take on that prep school look. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try a white t-shirt and denim overalls – yes, overalls. This one-piece option is back in style!”

    I wish they would make comforters in this pattern! I’m dying for one!

    Polka dots are cute, but this pattern isn’t “fashioned after the pretty peacock”. Peacock feathers are green, gold, electric blue, and dark blue; they aren’t pink, raspberry and grape purple. Still the jewel-tones of the pattern and mix of paisleys and flowers remind me a lot of Symphony in Hue and Blue Rhapsody.
