Joseph Ungoco for Second City Style Magazine
April showers may bring May flowers to our city parks, but nothing
sets off spring floral prints on our streets like the annual Run for
the Roses at the Kentucky Derby. As we head toward the home stretch of
the third leg of the Triple Crown at Belmont Park, floral prints are
suddenly everywhere.Think you can’t work floral into your personal
style? Think again! This season in particular, designers are
putting this most feminine touch on a surprisingly full array of
silhouettes and styles.
Rebecca Taylor is well known for her easy feminine
designs. If your personal style is more boho than chic urban
sophisticate, Taylor’s floral print tunics and peasant blouses are the
perfect choice for you. The flowy chiffons are the perfect complement to your new boyfriend jeans and strappy sandals. Let your inner flower child loose.
Are you a little bit rock-n-roll? Matthew Williamson’s
designs for Spring 2009 are your “must-haves” this season. From his
acid neon oversize graphic floral print to his delicately embroidered
Chinese flowers, he really nailed a totally modern and current take on
the 80s-inspired looks you’re undoubtedly sporting already. Whether
you choose a sassy short skirt or a sleek asymmetrical zip knit dress,
you’ll be giving flower power with an edge wherever you go. Perhaps you’re a little bit more street savvy with your personal style? Tuleh’s bright floral print tunics get a tougher street edge with the help of camouflage Capri pants.
