I’m applauding her because of her bold fashion choices. Just when I thought it was not possible to go back, seeing Solange wear them made me fall in love with them again.
That’s right, they are back… FLORAL PATTERNS.
I read about it on the pages of Harper’s Bazar and it bloomed from almost every single fashion blog. Floral is the hot trend of Spring 2014. And I was skeptical at first! We all know that Hawaiian shirts are over, (HALLELUJAH! -- unless you're in Hawaii, then I'll allow it). The question was how can you succeed in putting floral patterns on a human body without 1994 calling that they want their trend back?
Then… I saw Fashion Houses like Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen and Gucci to name a few that were able to modernize the floral pattern. And oh, did I mention? They were part of this year’s Men’s Fashion Show! Two days after, I saw Solange rocking them in various events. It was then I said… Okay… let me reconsider. Picking the right colors and knowing how to arrange them on a fabric and then tailor them for a body is definitely what makes it modern. The best thing about flowers and colors? You can never go wrong. Talk about a bold statement for Spring/Summer!
Stay tuned. To be posted soon.
