Tina, here.

When I say paisley, what's the first image that pops up in your mind?

If it's a Harold's ad, then you grew up in the '80's, too.

Nothing is really new in fashion, and paisley is no exception. But now it's making its rounds in this century. Be careful, if I haven't cleaned out your closet and reminisced with you over Harold's croc belts, paisley skirts and wool vests, and tossed them, then you'll be tempted to dig it all out and start wearing it. Don't. It won't look right. It'll look frumpy and dated. Trust me on this. Mkay, cupcakes?

Here's how you can pull off paisley this Fall.

Ok, guess what. These are more magazine tear-outs from I think maybe 20 years ago...I have notebooks of this stuff. But the point is, anything Ralph Lauren has ever done and will ever do is perfectly perfect every time, IMHO. The first photo is models copying this RL look. If you have this old RL paisley and velvet skirt, you can still wear it. I do, and I am. Here's a size 6 on eBay if you want to snag it.

This skirt I'm wearing below is a one-off I found at a designer discount store in Nashville, but I've got loads of options for you to choose from, and I've styled them with pieces you probably already have in your closet, so you don't feel like an '80's Harold's ad.

How To Style Paisley For Fall

Perhaps my very favorite thing on this page is the paisley pair of palazzo pants from Boden, I think they are dreamy, so I'll start with them. Notice I'm not pairing them with the matching blouse.  Too matchy-matchy for my taste.
