12 Stylish Knot Prints Ideas That Will Improve Your Fashion

The fashion industry’s collective infatuation with somewhat cringe-worthy, entirely over-the-top trends doesn’t seem to be waning any time soon. And the latest movement to enter the zeitgeist is no exception. Fashion’s most recent obsession, knot print clothing, offers vintage fiends a way to get their retro revival on—without excluding those of us who appreciate an elegant ensemble. (Maximalist fun with a side of class? Don’t mind if we do.)

Knot prints originally rose to popularity in the late ’80s and ’90s, in large part thanks to Gianni and Donatella Versace’s iconic obsession with the scarf-worthy motif. (You’ve probably seen retro Versace campaigns, featuring the supermodels of the era, clad in designs covered with gilded—almost gaudy—chain links and knots.) Knot prints were among the patterns to make a comeback in 2018’s scarf print clothing movement, but they’re so abundant in 2019 that they’ve earned a trend to themselves. (Patchworks and ornate paisleys, be damned.)

Before you write the knot print clothing trend off as yet another ugly-cool movement, remember that Meghan Markle sported the blossoming trend at Westminster Abbey earlier this year. I’d be lying if I said I was sold on this maximalist movement the movement I first noticed it creeping into my Instagram feed—in fact, I found it willfully tacky. But if it’s good enough for the Duchess of Sussex, it’s certainly good enough for me; Markle has such a knack for rendering anything chic and regal that it was actually her appearance in that knot-print dress that convinced me the trend could work.

With everyone from luxury designer houses to forward-facing fast-fashion brands leaving their spin on the trend, it’s clear the knotted chain motif is here to stay—and I’m actually starting to warm up to it.
