“Florals, for spring – groundbreaking,” as said by the devil herself – Meryl Streep – in everyone’s fave classic fashionista film The Devil Wears Prada.
Well, she had a good point, however we know that floral prints are the true essence of spring/summer style and are a trend that will forever bloom for years to come. Whether they’re pretty and delicate or striking and bold, we all have to confess that we love a bit of floral in our lives.
This floral-print taffeta dress by Red Valentino is a superb example of pastel petals creatively clashing with a more sombre colour palette, similar to last year’s Alexander McQueen spring/summer collection. The trend totally blossomed into one of the year’s most exciting and talked about styles and it looks like Valentino has taken a leaf out of Sarah Burton’s book this season, with this striking yet equally stunning dress.
The dress features a dreamy print which is displayed in an overlapping abundance of summery hues, and above all is a comfortable and figure flattering style.
This chic summer option is perfect for parties and when styled with fuchsia pink heels to match the skinny waist belt and a glossy envelop clutch, you’ll be a true daisy darling.
