Vintage inspired fashion: Flower Power

So you may not think this trend is particularly groundbreaking but picking florals for your spring wardrobe is a must for future seasons. This vintage inspired fashion trend has been a key focal point for designers dating back years. Not only does it inspire fashion, interiors are hot on the heels with delicate pastel detailing.

Flowers ooze femininity and designers such as Holly Fulton, Erdem and Top-shop took it back to basics with pretty prints and frills. Designers such as Temperley London mixed traditional floral print with definitive masculine shapes, still creating a captivating vintage inspired style but also providing a contrast to traditional design.
