Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.

While winter is still raging outside my window, I can’t help but to dream of some florals and spring.

If you ever saw The Devil Wears Prada (and who hasn’t, right?) you know that floral prints for the spring season have been around for a while. Still, as the new season approaches, it seems that no one can resist a little bit of bloom. Watching collections for spring/summer 2017 I noticed that there are some common trends, and that you can choose if you want to be a gentle wallflower or a bold blooming beauty. Here are the floral trends that are made for daydreaming and lots of great outfits as soon as the weather allows it.

Mixed prints

If you feel like florals in the spring are very boring, don’t dismiss them just yet. Many designers created a bolder version of the look by mixing florals with other prints. For the biggest flower fans you can even mix two floral prints. This trend was seen on the runways like Isabel Marant, Jason Wu and Rag + Bone. This one’s for the cool kids and the ones that like to play and re-invent.


Go big or go home

This is not for wallflower. Be prepared to bloom in the boldest trend that shows prints from head to toe and often in bright colours. It also offers a slightly more quiet looks that stand out because of enlarged floral prints. Either one you choose, this trend will give you that extra energy in your step when walking into the new season. It was seen at Marni, Tibi, Balenciaga, Gucci and other runways.



The gentlest and fairest of all is the transparent trend. If you go for lighter colours this look can be very sweet and baby doll-like, but darker tones can also make it more edgy and make you look like a dark romantic. Find it in shows like Rodarte, Lanvin and Alexander McQueen.
