Give your style some shape with these bold, geometric pieces

As the weather gets warmer and the days become longer, there’s a burgeoning sense of playfulness in the air, and there’s no better way to imbue this jovial mood into your attire than with the considered use of geometric shapes.

Whether you prefer a classic check, an edgy kaleidoscopic pattern or a cutesy motif, add drama to your look by layering shapes (and colours), or keep it simple by focusing on one and using it as an eye-catching detail.

Naturally, we can’t look past enduring house codes like Prada’s triangle, Saint Laurent’s star, or Alaïa’s heart, all iconic shapes for you to make your own. For inspiration on how to get started with this design-focused trend, read on to discover some of our favourite geometric looks that will have you cutting shapes all summer long.
