Ebay Spring Trend - Flower with love

Floral print for spring is as cliche as it gets but this season, it's still as hot as ever. The ubiquitous print was seen at various runways including (from left) Marc Jacobs, Oscar De La Renta, Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren.

Florals can get a bit tricky as too much can get a bit overwhelming, but if kept at a reasonable level, they can be pretty and fun. They can also be a great mix of sexy and playful on dresses that show a little skin. This print is very versatile as it can be done in many ways, on many different types of clothing so you're bound to find something for yourself.

Below are some great floral print items I came across.

Danz said...

theysaywordscanbleed - yeah I know. Oscar De La Renta's designs are always lovely!


justme - I think this comment was meant for two posts below but I love that purse as well. I'm a sucker for ruffles. Oh, and you have a cool blog.

just blogged about my odd distaste for floral but really like ALL your picks. really have to dig deep and figure out what my anti-floral stance is about...

Danz said...

haha thanks diabolina. I can be like that as well. I think I don't like something and then I see an item that makes me question why I don't like I didn't like it in the first place.
