The ultra-feminine in me might have done a little happy dance when I saw that floral motifs were going to be one of the salient trends this season.  Dainty and ultra-feminine, this print can be subdued or bold, depending on your inclination.

Some runway inspiration from some of my favorite fashion week collections:

There’s something flirty and playful about a floral frock or pantsuit. Makes you want to get in touch with your inner girly-girl, no? Though not for everyone, floral prints are classic and sophisticated, and just the sort of trend I think I’ll keep around.
