Floral on Floral by Shannon

Monday, March 26, 2012
What does everyone think about the floral-on-floral trend? I've been seeing it everywhere for Spring 2012 runway shows. For me the verdict is not out yet. I've seen it done a few different ways:  jacket with blouse, blouse and pant, blouse and skirt, sweater over dress. I think I could get used to the trend if it's done right.


What do you think? Are you on board the floral trend? Link up below!

  3. I agree with Sherri - do-able but if it's not done right, it's Hot Mess town!

  4. Yes, definitely needs to be done right.. I recently bought a floral skirt that is borderline granny.. Need to be careful!!

  5. Wow I don't know if I am brave enough to attempt this! I love florals though...maybe I'll try a floral scarf on a floral skirt to break up the patterns a bit. Thanks for hosting the link up!

  6. Hmm, I think unless you go all out with one pattern on both top and bottom, you have to be careful. I also wonder if this is a trend we'll look back on in a year and laugh! 

    I do love how florals and patterns are everywhere right now, so perhaps pairing a very muted floral on top with a pattern (cheetah print?) on bottom would work instead of floral on floral. I'll link up if I try it this week!

  7. I think it really is an art getting this look right, If you choose prints too simular (in size, color, and style) it looks a little "gramdma-ish" or busy... But when done right, it add interest.

  8. I am definitely a fan of a good feminine floral, however floral on floral is a trend that I don't think I would ever be brave enough to pull off. Is it just with larger floral prints? I wonder if it would look better if the prints were smaller and a bit more subtle.

    I just don't think I can hop on this bandwagon. In my opinion numerous floral prints should not go together...it's just too much going on!
