To quote Meryl Streep’s iconic character in the 2006 comedy drama The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” While the use of flower-inspired elements in spring fashion isn’t exactly new, one floral ‘90s trend started to make a comeback toward the end of last year, and we’re excited to see it continue into the coming season.
We’re talking about 3D floral appliques—chokers in particular. Over the last few months, celebrities and influencers like Kendall Jenner and We Wore What’s Danielle Bernstein have been spotted wearing floral chokers as part of both runway and street style looks.
Rose appliques have also been central to the creations of couture designers such as Tom Ford and Richard Quinn at many Spring/Summer 2023 fashion shows.
As it so often does, the influence of high fashion and celebrity style has trickled down to the mass market. Brands from ASOS to Zara have followed the lead of these trendsetters by offering their own versions of these dynamic, eye-catching pieces.
Regarding the question of how to style floral chokers, we’re of the opinion that less-is-more is the best approach. Pair yours with clean, simple outfits in neutral colors, and try to keep other accessories to a minimum.
What do you think of this trend? Will you be trying it for yourself, or sitting this one out?
