It’s been raining less, and the sun is out a whole lot more, which means spring is almost here. With winter out of the way, shops are starting to put out spring/summer collections. One trend that is notably seen in almost every store for both men and women is the floral print. So, what is floral and why is it so on trend?
Floral prints are believed to have begun in the East and then introduced to the west through the Orient and Asia. With hundreds of colours and designs to choose from, the option to integrate flowers into fabric are endless. The floral theme has been integrated not only into apparel but also footwear and headgear. The representation of the flower has evolved as our fashion trends have also change. While big trends come and go, the floral print is one that is constantly re-invented and produced in a bigger and better way.
For women the prints are extremely popular with dresses, lingerie, pants skirts, and everything else retailers can put a flower on. The prints are notably always brightly coloured and girly. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy around spring/ summertime. For men however there is a rise of dark florals as a menswear theme for the coming spring. A big floral print makes a bold statement, but when framed in an easy-going way with a bomber jacket or simple T-shirt it is made less challenging.
