This timeless print pattern re-appears every single season, but always with a new take – a new fresh attitude. The runways for this season have sported both big and loud floral prints in bold colors as well as softer toned more classic ones. The first kind looks a lot like resort-wear prints. Hence, there is something very whimsical about them. The other though has a more romantic attitude with a contemporary spin for a very polished look, especially when it comes to a spring dress.
