Florals for spring is…less than innovative, but as evidenced by this past fashion month, many designers have shunned this traditional spring-print pairing and embraced it for autumn/winter ’19. Designers have begun to rethink how they work with the print we typically associate with warm weather.
The new florals also have a more tangible quality than those of previous seasons. Satin roses bloomed from the edge of skirts, and long-stemmed daisies swung tantalizingly from suits. As surprising as it is to consider wearing a daisy-print trouser in the dead of winter, this is one feel-good trend that will manage to keep us sane until spring.
A floral print is often associated with sweet and romantic, and there’s obviously nothing wrong with that. But the floral trend can also be combined with cool items for a more fashionable option. Try wearing a maxi dress with an all-over floral print, with high-heeled sandals and stunning earrings for an ultra-feminine look, ór team an abstract floral printed blouse with leather culottes and cool ankle boots for a more high-fashion appeal.
Keep in mind that an eye-catching print doesn’t suit all body shapes. Do you have a H-line silhouette? Then you can totally rock a stunning and eye-catching print to create the illusion of a more voluminous silhouette.
Flowers have a timeless appeal.Come summer, you can’t escape them; come winter, you long for them. Fashion’s obsession with botanicals took many forms basic and loud, sequined and embroidered.
