You may think flowers are reserved only as a way to show congratulations or love. They may hold a special space in your closet and come out only when the sun is shining. Well, think again, because summer fashion trends were dominated by floral prints, and this upcoming fall season is no exception. Though the flowers won’t necessarily bloom as much anymore, they’ll still show up in stores and on stylish celebs like Keira Knightley. Here are some liberty-print floral options that will take you easily from the last summer months and into the fall season.
FLORAL PRINT DRESSES
For all you fashionistas that like taking a risk, dare to go bold with this trend and don a dress with an all-over floral print. Designers including Derek Lam, Michael Kors and Anna Sui all brought flower power back for the upcoming seasons.
