Yep, You Are Seeing This Print Everywhere: Here’s How It Happened

Certain trends we start noticing gradually. Then, without much build-up (or, before you can pat yourself on the back for your keen eye), they're everywhere. That's exactly what happened with marble: Right when the rock-as-photoreal-print seemed to be having a home-decor moment, it had already made its way onto our Instagram feeds in the form of brunch tablescapes and minimalist shots of hands holding espresso cups, adorned with delicate knuckle rings. Next time, maybe don't blink — because marble's gone fashion.
Now the pattern has spread from the one-off phone case to shoe soles, T-shirts, and party dresses. It's trumping the predictable florals, contrasting stripes, and other highly saturated tones that generally dominate summertime fashion, in favor of a more subdued style.
Marble is just as eye-grabbing, only in a less obvious, attention-seeking way. It's the subtle girl's answer to statement prints, and we're understandably obsessed. Make like David (yes — that one) with one of the 30 pieces, ahead.
