New Leaf

Floral prints in style for fall

If spring is synonymous with rebirth, fall is all about transition. Flowers hit the runway in an innovative way last season with sculptural details and no traditional floral prints to be found, and the trend continues … only now with a more botanical bent. This fall’s motto? Love it and leaf it.

Inspired by nature, you’ll see everything from realistically rendered plants to ’70s-influenced colorful blooms. Wild, free-flowing prints in many shades give this season’s looks a vintage folklore feel. Silhouettes are long, loose, and billowy, adding a dash of romance.

And when the weather finally does change, pair these new botanicals with heavier or textured fabrics to readily adapt to those cooler months.
