Spring Trend #5: Romantic Flowers  

5 comentarios

I'm back with more trends! This time flowers are everywhere!!!
I'm the kind of girl that thought clothes with flowers were too girly for me. I was the kind of girl that thought flower accessories were 'kitsch'.
I was probably wrong. Or maybe not.
Or maybe I hate floral clothes because when I was a kid my mother would always make me wear clothes with flowers! I remember having a dress with green flowers, and saying all the time: "MOM! GREEN flowers don't exist!!!" I suppose I have a childhood trauma!

Looks pretty, right? This is a nice trend, but just not for me =) I'll stick to the bright colors and let other people wear this beautiful flowers. Let's be romantic this spring!

Big designers say flowers can be in any color, pattern, etc. Just look at the flowing look of those dresses, it really sends the romantic vibe.
Also, the FashionTribes article says: "To keep clear of grandma territory, an edgy shoe is mandatory .... look for crisp fabrics and more structured, figure-flattering silhouettes"
So there ya go ;)

However, what I am more used to find is the floral trend in pink colors:

So, once more, I tried my best to show you some of my favourite romantic floral Etsy picks. There are a lot of flower themed items in Etsy, however I was looking more for the 'romantic' look. This really made me embrace my floral side and stop hating flower clothes hehe: (click to see full size image)


Sellers, from top to bottom, right to left are (link to the item): owleyesvintage, EasterYu, nstylevintage, salvagelife, tulloolah, simonewalsh, sweetcharlotte, missbrache, BulleMor, MrsGibson, maybesomeday, mapetiteamy, fringe, artdi, JustVic, ndeurshoes, sweetcharlotte, tijusai, ladiesofleisure, ingermaaike

Hoping you have liked this trend review. Will you wear this spring some floral clothes? Will you be designing items with flowers? Let us know your opinions on this!! :)

And now, for a little promotion: I made a treasury in Etsy with some of the picks for the bright colors trend! See it here: Crayola Bright Colors at Etsy

    Wow I do love flowers but in a slightly more subtle way, like just one thing with flowers or just one flower. Love the series!

    Beautiful clothes..Let me just say, no matter how hard I work on the treadmill, I just don't think I can get into those dresses.
