In case you didn’t notice, the SS2013 collections are blooming everywhere. Fashion’s ongoing love affair with floral prints continues for Spring/Summer 2013 with a myriad of designers expressing their twist on iconic flower patterns. Be prepared to embrace your innerself with floral print dresses, swimsuits, shoes and even sunglasses. This season’s florals come in soft pastel colours and vibrant hues, all of which are some variation of the infamous flower theme. What makes the SS2013 floral print trend different from the ones it proceeds is the size of the prints, oversized sets the standard. Oscar de la Renta, the evergreen of floral prints, showed appliques so big on the catwalk, they were virtually life-size. For those that aren’t willing to transform into a walking bush of flowers but still like a floral accent every now and then there’s also plenty of stuff to accessorize. So, there’s no excuse for avoiding the intense flowery atmospheres of springtime. Just kidding, choose whatever suits your mood, as long as it is WOW*.
