Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking // Pt. 1


Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking

That phrase shook the meme fashion world to its core. Let me remind you of that scene where the highly (feared) dictator of fashion of movie The Devil Wear Prada, Miranda Priesly’s character gently looks away with a pursed lip and unimpressed at a designer’s Spring presentation. Why would she react like that in room full of delicate and beautiful floral prints? What’s so wrong with floral prints?

I am the first one to whip out a fun cute floral ensemble but out of all the prints of summer, (fall, spring, for that matter because they’re here all year round) it’s a print I’m most conscious of. Frankly it’s over used, and it can get tiring if not innovated or used in a smart way. I’m not to avoid it --because one thing for sure, it will never go out of style.  What I am invoking for is a spin, let creativity rule over your florals. It is a basic in every wardrobe and as seen during this past Fashion Week all around the fashion capitals, florals ruled the catwalk.

Rule number one: match your florals. Go for a micro print, subtle enough that it doesn’t overpower the look. Don’t let it be about the flowers but of the components of your outfit. This flirty pleated with ruffle set skirt is ideal. Easy to throw on and bares the essential summer shoulder. Wear with black ankle booties during weather transitions which in addition adds boldness.
