Fall 2011: Florals

Fashion trends: Flower prints

Florals used to be reserved for spring, but now it's a festive garden party year-round. Here's how to copy the look: What types of flowers inspired fashion designers? Style pollination had dandelions and sprigs of lily of the valley at Miu Miu, blossoming white roses at Lanvin and multicoloured wildflowers at Jil Sander, all set against a dark base creating a flourishing, graphic effect.

When can I wear it? Rethink dressing: Adopt florals as an easy does of daytime chic in early fall or save it for winter's holiday celebrations. How do I wear it? The print is the focal point, so tread lightly with jewellery and finish with simple pumps or wedge booties.

Who did it best? Lanvin, Paul Smith, Moschino, Giambattista Valli, Jil Sander, Sportmax and Miu Miu (Text: Anthony Mitropoulos). [caption id="attachment_5952" align="aligncenter" width="476" caption="Jil Sander (Photo courtesy of IMAXTree.com)"] [/caption]

Which floral will you try this season? Marc Jacobs, Lanvin or Jil Sander?
