Spring 2013 Trend Report: Cool Botanica

As Meryl Streep said in The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”

But these florals aren’t of the grandmother variety. Teeny tiny hotshorts at Peter Som had serious cool girl appeal, while oversized retro flowers on spring furs were anything but old fashioned at Prada. Even floral prints that might belong on sixties curtains looked fresh on crop top and pencil skirt combos at Suno.
And while florals usually decorate femine frocks, like the gorgeous watercolor blooms at Lela Rose, they looked ultra modern printed on jumpsuits and pants this season (3.1 Phillip Lim, Etro and Kenzo).
