This outfit makes me feel so chic. I think the knee high boots and the flowery patterns are the ones to blame.
There are flowers on the runways! Everything’s coming up roses, tulips, peonies, and more for spring 2008. One of the season’s freshest trends came right from the hothouse as flower power made a huge splash across woman’s designer ready to wear collections of the season.
Not exactly the most subversive of trends, the budding season of rebirth was the obvious inspiration for this blossoming fad. But who says fashion always has to be revolutionary? Sometimes a girl just wants to look pretty.
While flowers are the essence of springtime, innovative designers went beyond the dated, bland granny prints and the expectedly dowdy Laura Ashley patterns, and instead piloted a fresher course. Designers followed the season’s lead with delightful sartorial displays of vibrant floral illustrations and hand-painted treatments, as well as edgier distorted and blurred flowering motifs that smacked of art-nouveau.
Not only floral, but flowers, let it be girls, let it be you, feminine, chic, jolie!
