Into the Bloom

Ahhh.. love is in the air. Pre-fall and Fall collections were showered with floral prints. I noticed most designers adorned their dresses with bouquets of crimson blooms and feminine floral prints. And I just spotted this oh-so-pretty very Mad-Men-ish Max Mara mustard floral print dress at the brand's boutique in Salhiya (they have just received their pre-fall collection). And I found the fit to be so flattering as it's slightly fitted from the top and from the waist down you get this beautiful not-too-overwhelming kind of volume. Juuuust-right. Loved it! Price tag?

Hop on to this florals trends by pairing your pieces with chunky knits or sheepskin gilets for the full effect. Or you can make it simple and pair them with statement accessories only. To cut down on the sweetness factor, roughen up the look with a pair of booties or bulky cuffs.

Another floral dress? Ruby red and grey dress with floral print by Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. Price tag? KD 233 .
