Believe it or not, one of this spring’s hottest patterns looks like it came right out of your grandma’s china closet–toile! Fortunately, there’s nothing ancient about the way designers like Zara, Duro Olowu and Paul & Joe are working it. Sure, the blue and white color combo may resemble Nana’s old plates and cups, but when scattered across fitted dresses, peplum tops and structured blazers, the pattern looks surprisingly new and stylish. We recommend pairing it with your most daring, of-the-moment accessories–think chrome heels or a bright crossbody bag.
