April Showers Bring May Flowers

23 Apr

Forecasts show sunny skies and floral prints in our futures! The fashion bloggers have all covered and raved about floral prints during the early spring/summer runways and now that the season is here I am pleased to say the bloggers know what’s up! Designers such as Carolina Herrera, Christian Lacroix and Balenciaga are all participating in this spring fling. It’s great to see bloggers breaking into the world of fashion and actually picking up on the latest fashion trends of spring ’08.!

Whether it be work or play, wearing floral prints is easy to do. When I think of a floral print I picture myself in a dreaded sun dress. This will not be the case during the spring season, I promise. I particularly admire Lilly Pulitzer for her work-appropriate tile print sheath dress. Pulitzer’s use of structure and femininity creates a classic piece to add to any wardrobe while keeping up with the trend. Another favorite of mine is Anne Klein’s use of belts cinched at the waist paired with plunging neck lines to exaggerate the feminine shape of her floral print dresses.

Integrating feminine silhouettes and prints will ease the pressure of having to hide our figures in tent dresses and “maternity wear” that most of us have purchased in the past four months.

    Hey Sarah, loved your piece. Im going to have to agree with your points on the latests trend this season. However, I do not like the floral prints. I believe look good on a select few. Keep me posted!

    Sarah! You are so right on with your post about the popularity of prints this spring. Over the weekend i read a few magazines, which all talked a lot about how bold prints are the hot new thing this season! It’s amazing how fashion gets recycled over the decades and this season retro florals, 40s, 50s and 70s flower prints are making their come back!I’m personally very excited to trade my gray and black sweaters in for a fun, flower-print dress!
