Fashion isn’t always about being conventionally beautiful. Sometimes it’s about personality, like when prints clash boldly together to create something eccentric and experimental. A sub-story of fall 2012 fashion wanted nothing more than to fearlessly create those clashes. You need only look at Miu Miu’s fall collection as an example.

And, as if to contrast things even more, it was a trend that befriended androgyny in a successful way. The flamboyant, Dandy offspring of androgynous cuts and clashing prints is what remains: showcased by Vogue UK’s September issue in a shoot starring Karlie Kloss.

If you’re not keen on rocking out a bright patterned suit like a rockstar from 1975, perhaps the tucked-in, tousled hair and red lipstick are the takeaway.
