An Explosion Of Flowers!

flower-print-style‘If you’re going to San Francisco (read anywhere actually) be sure to wear some flowers”… on your clothes. In prints that is. YES the Floral Print Trend is back for 2013 Spring & Summer, but that is no big surprise, I really don’t think it was, or ever will be gone. As you can’t have fall without the dark hues and thick fabrics, you certainly can’t have a hot season without (1) Floral Prints, (2) Light & white colors and fabrics. What is different though in 2013 Spring is the retro feeling and Sicilian vibe I get from all those flower printed clothes & accessories. And that’s another great new thing, flowers are invading not just the same cliche items (tops and bottoms) but bags, shoes, headwraps, earrings, tiny fashion bits that you never even imagined could carry an array of nicely scented roses & buds. Ah… a very romantic, boho-chic & retro style. Think Dolce & Gabbana and that should sum it up. floral-print-dressTo avoid any fashion predicament you might think you’re in, and the frenzy that comes with figuring out what type of flowers are in, or what size should they be, I say breathe. Let’s just enjoy fashion and have loads of fun with it. Sure nobody wants to don a, what they think is a cool floral vintage bag that actually looks dull and dated… but honestly who gives a damn about the strict fashion lines. I don’t even think we’re suppose to. Not unless we wish to be labeled as fashion victims. And at the end of the day fashion is about getting creative… But just to have an idea that you can put at the back of your mind for that ”just in case” moment, according to designers the Floral Prints this season are either super big and not crowded OR tiny and understated. Pick your type and roll with it, although… let’s get real here… if you love clashing floral prints and wearing a crowded garden on your outfit (I know I do), nothing wrong with it, right? floral-topfloral-trendfloral-print-trousersOn what to wear those Florals this season? Floral Printed Trousers are huge. They’ve got that retro feeling to them of  that uber cool Americana look (think 1950’s women dancing on Lana del Rey songs). Colors: ice-cream shades, dusted little flowers or bright big roses are all in. For an understated very classy yet retro look Jennifer Lopez’s collection at Kohls has got some pretty impossible to resist pieces: tiny floral printed trousers, floral printed blouse & dress. Which brings me to the other items florals are landing on this spring, but not before I let you check out JLo’s clothes at Kohls. 🙂
