Trend Alert: 10 Ways to Pull off 2013's 'It' Pattern, Ikat (PHOTOS)

Whether it's defined as slightly tribal, a cousin of chevron, or totally tie-dye, we can say one thing: we love ikat. Patterns are already one the hottest wedding trends, and ikat is right there among the most popular this year. With a dash of black and white, this woven pattern can transform for a formal affair just as easily as it can fit into a rustic fete filled with warm, summery hues. We've said it once, and we'll say it again - define your style with a pattern. Maybe ikat is the one for you.

Dresses, invitations, linens, and more are filling the ikat gallery from Loverly, so make sure to take a peek.
