Roses (and daffodils, and orchids, and daisies) are quite typically in for Spring.
As they always are you might be thinking (and your right!) the Floral trend and tea party connotation is absolutely a Spring classic, that re-blooms every season.
Yet as each year rolls past, so do the details in which these flowers lie. While they once were printed upon floaty, ultra-femme dresses and breezy camis in a delicately romantic way, this S/S’12 has provided a new atmosphere for this seasonal sensation.
A vivid array of colors such as yellow, turquoise, pink, red are setting the standard for a heavier, more preppier botanical print.
Crisp button-up blouses, structured bags, and slim pants feature this springs vision and with their seasonal structure these pieces look fresh, modern, and equal parts sweet and sophisticated.
Blumarine, Anna Molinari, Laura Ashley, Moschino and Givenchy are amongst designers taking to the boutique of colour and prints.
All presenting colour tones that are signature to their brands and hints that make the floral prints representations of their fashion houses – and yet – the prints dimensions are similar – BOLD and blooming!
Now there is a fine line between chic and frumpy when it comes to florals – however, this season the designers have saved you a lot of styling stresses by creating prints that are more graphic in structure and less whimsical – meaning you’ll automatically appear a seasoned dresser as apposed to one who may have been got caught up in reading ‘The Secret Garden’.
This season an edgy look, with brighter hues and darker backdrops take form within the prints – and working with these means going along with similar colour pallets.
Ideally you want to choose a colour from within the pattern and add that to your ensemble.
OR if your the more fashion savvy type – dress head to toe florals – it’s a catwalk fav!
