Trend Spotting: Flower Power!

This trend nearly passed me by. While floral prints have always been a fashion classic, I never quite bought into them being incorporated into anything other than little girl's dresses (cute) or kitchen curtains (kitschy). But this Spring's runways ushered them into the season in so many modern, feminine ways. From the patterned pump to the strategic placement of strong prints for an ultra slimming effect, florals have been pumped up and updated. The prints are also being seen on home furnishings and brides, typically a place where florals of the living kind are highlighted, you will find this trend used in very unique ways.

Taking florals from the Spring and Summer seasons into Fall is a breeze as my Style Board below illustrates. My best advice is to wear one item at a time in this trend to avoid flower power overload. Make florals your own by adding some gorgeous gemstone cluster jewelry in bright colors like my Lemon Tree Earrings and my Field Greens Necklace. Lovely!
