Florals in a Row

From denim, to dresses, and now stamped in leather...are floral prints the next fashion trend to ditch?  Three seasons in a row, fashion houses and denim brands have shown off their flower power via separates and accessories, but when will the garden party end? With Mother's the looker paradise printed jean still at the top of the charts for best selling, it's hard to tell if floral prints will ever leave. This Fall, one of the already sought after booties is Rag&Bone's floral-print canvas newbury bootie: a twist to their high selling style bootie in a dark backed floral stamped canvas. A lean towards the romantic side, with Haute Hippie's lace trimmed floral print top, Dolce& Gabbana's  printed stretch-silk dress, or Marni's floral cotton blend in black and gold are all fresh Fall pieces heavily stamped in florals. The garden party may be over for the sun friendly frocks that took us to lunch this spring and summer, but the flowers still hold a lot of power. Florals remain starting players in Fall collections, but have slightly been updated with a dark and romantic twist.

After hearing rumors of floral trends coming to an end, a hibiscus stamped tote made friends and decided to ROW away....should she stick around for Fall or just keep rowing?
