The iconic Miranda Priestley from the The Devil Wears Prada spitefully quoted, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Well, little did she know because floral dresses indeed are truly groundbreaking and the world of fashion just cannot quit on them.
Florals dominated the runways of fashion week throughout the year of 2017 and by the looks of the response it has been receiving; we doubt that they are going anywhere any time soon.
Feminine, fun, vibrant, and exciting, dressing floral make for the perfect ensemble especially during the spring and summer. 2017 brought with it many trends but perhaps the best of them all was the revival of floral dresses.

This year they came mainly in two opposite ends of the spectrum: soft pastels and vivid and vibrant bright hues. The trends this year even played with pattern sizes with some focusing on oversized motifs and others maintaining a slightly more minimalistic approach with smaller patterns.
Many created innovative new motifs combining the two to create a unique palette of its own. There is something that suits everyone’s palate!
Floral patterns can very easily be overdone. Back in the day, the trend may have lived on but in today’s world of fashion, it is all about mixing and matching and creating the right look. Pair your favorite floral dress top with a plain contrasting helm or a statement jacket.
