OUR STYLIST LOVES FLORALS

Floral Prints are a hot Spring fashion trend

 

This season, fashion is in full bloom and we’re seeing florals spring up everywhere. Dresses, rompers, shorts and everything in between are getting the petal treatment – and we’re totally on board. Take this trapeze cami for example: it’s the perfect top for a festival or a sunny day downtown. Loose, breezy fabrics give these bright prints some room to flow.
