Floral fashion is now in bloom!
Floral fantasies were seen all over this summer season’s collections, from flower-print dresses and blooming bloomers to chintzed-up handbags and spruced-up shoes. Whether you’re opting for a full look or just want to add a bit of flowery detail, what better way is there to make the most of the sunshine when you’re stepping out?
And if you have to choose where to invest your wardrobe budget, there’s no easier way to jazz up an outfit than by adding the perfect accessory that brings your ensemble completely up to date.
The girly handbags on the D&G runway instantly transported us to a sunny state of mind with their embroidered florals, printed brocade, colorful stitching, quaint padlocks, glitter details and crystals. Sandals and pumps continued on that vivid theme with floral decorations on the front and kaleidoscopic patterns on heels.
Pull off this trend easily by looking to distinctive and lively personalities as inspiration: Sex and the City’s Carrie is the prototype. Surely we’re not the only ones to think that’s just what we need to put a spring in our step!
