Fashion’s love affair with floral print continued spring-summer ’13 with a myriad of designers offering new takes on the feminine pattern. This season’s florals ranged from soft pastels to vibrant hues and bloomed across clothing and accessories alike. Oscar de la Renta’s gorgeous collection featured larger-than-life flowers while the king of floral print, Edrem, readapted his signature print into 3D appliqués. Taking note from our favorite designers, this pattern is all about having fun with fashion and the romance of warm weather. Small scale or large, subtle or bold, floral prints embrace femininity and can be the perfect update to any wardrobe.
While there is something sultry about dark floral print that screams femininity and mystery, the soft pastel prints this season whispered delicacy. Pastels were seen in ultra-feminine shapes and flowing skirts that create the perfect ladylike ensemble. If feminine florals, soft or loud, is too daring, Valentino, Sass & Bide, and Bottega Veneta worked the trend in a more neutral palette. Still too far out of your comfort zone? Look to flower-powered accessories, like Prada’s daisy, to lift your simple wardrobe staples.
