As we prepare for springtime gardens and blue skies, there’s nothing quite like romantic florals to get you in the mood for Spring 2018. However, this season, flowery frocks are taking a page from the past, and have returned to the runways with vintage flair. If you want to embrace blossom-emblazoned dresses for the warmer days ahead, try drawing your inspiration from the catwalks. These dainty, antique style maxis are certainly the right way to wear the floral trend.
The allover floral prints and eye-catching rainbow shades manage to bring this ornate, bohemian chic Valentino number to life. With its high Victorian neckline and long sleeves, this dress combines a number of trends into one. However, it’s the multicoloured tiny blooms and crochet detail that truly bring this design to life.
The ladylike blue and white floral print is understated, yet also a change from the dull neutrals of the past season. Meanwhile, the frilled long sleeves, ruffled peplum accents and long skirt bring a distinct vintage vibe to this style. While your lifestyle may be more Sex and the City than Little House of the Prairie, you can always embrace a retro aesthetic by taking your example from Loewe.
At Erdem, vintage florals received a makeover with a pop of yellow and blue and some twinkling embellishments. Meanwhile, the cinched-in waistline, slightly voluminous hem and puffed shoulders help to define this silhouette. We can’t forget the elegant white elbow-length gloves and dangling earrings bring old school charm to this eveningwear look.
