Retro Florals

The floral burst trend is being interpreted in lots of different ways this season. It really just puts you in mind of like a prairie, outdoors farm type inspiration.
A vintage-inspired floral print is brighter, more dominant, more visible, a theme that you will continue to see used from here on out. Florals are one of the wisest print investments you can make, for they never really go out of style. This season, designers have been taking the minimalistic approach with their blooms, focusing on silhouettes in block colors instead of more intricate and detailed prints.
