Prints are especially big for Spring 2012 so that’s why we are talking a lot about them at the moment. 

You are on Team Patterned Top if you prefer to wear patterns on the top half of your body, like patterned knit tops, shirts, blouses, sweaters, jackets, dresses and scarves. You are on Team Patterned Bottom if you prefer to wear patterns on the lower half of your body and away from your face, like patterned skirts, trousers, jeans, shorts, cropped pants, leggings, hosiery, handbags and footwear. 

I wear pattern in all forms on top, from argyle knitwear, pinstripe jackets, plaid blazers and a striped tee, to polka dot and animal print blouses, abstract floral print dresses and all sorts of patterned scarves.  I also wear pattern on the bottom. Micro checks, glen plaid and tartan trousers are close to my heart, as are pinstripes. I love wearing patterned skirts, black patterned hosiery, patterned bags and animal print shoes. 

I was going to bat for Team Patterned Bottom because I thought I preferred to wear patterns away from my face just a little bit more. But I just bought a tartan jacket that makes me feel fabulous, my argyle pullovers are favourites, and my floral dresses always make me smile. Clearly I like to wear pattern as much on top as on the bottom, so I guess I’m sitting this one out on the bench. 

Over to you. Are you on Team Patterned Top or Team Patterned Bottom? Tell us why and no batting for both sides.
