Petals & Paths: Exploring Florals In Fashion

Nothing screams delicate femininity quite like a floral design in fashion. The dainty floral pattern that has recently become a favorite of many resembles that of the vintage design that gained popularity in the late 1970s. Seeing flowers in fabric used for clothing became popular during the “Flower Power” time of the 1960s-1970s. Towards the end of the 70s, florals shrank and became the dainty, romantic floral that we all adore. Florals have stayed prominent in the fashion world for many reasons, there are endless ways to style florals to achieve the desired the look of the wearer.

Dainty floral patterns can add charm and romance to any outfit they are featured in, we love to style tiny florals for picnics, brunch, and weddings (as a guest of course!). Dainty florals can also help create balance and proportion to not only the body, but the outfit as a whole as well.

Style Tip:

If you are wanting to conceal a certain part of your body try wearing a dainty pattern such as small florals. Delicate floral patterns can help divert attention from areas that you would like to be concealed.
