Since winter just arrived, it may seem surprising to highlight floral prints. However, it’s a print that nods to warmer weather, which is approaching in a few short months. If you want to find out which floral prints to wear right now and which floral trends are in for spring ‘22, then you’ve come to the right place.
Winter ‘22 Florals
Micro Floral: The florals from my 90s childhood are exactly the floral trends for the season. Floral arrangements in almost micro-sized scales that cover entire garments are here, and they look a lot better than I remember from my childhood. This trend is likely to transition right into spring, so if you’re looking to take your florals even further, I’d place my bets on this one.
Art of Color: Remember when I said florals for f/w come in darker shades? Here’s the exception: Think dark florals with a pop of color. Fun colors aren’t just for spring, and they add a playful element to cooler months that can often seem bleak (although Christmas was nearly sunny and 70, the cold is coming–Just give it time).
Roses: Florals of colder months are darker and feature a more earthy tone than the florals of the spring. Roses are rocking the spotlight this season. Expect to see the winter variation in a deep red combined with a dark background color on suiting separates, perfect for fall/winter.
Roses Pt. 2: These updated floral patterns in bold, exotic, and sexy offerings are as hot as the heat you’ll be wearing them in. I left roses for last in the f/w list on purpose. Rose print floral will transition from winter straight into fall, offering a bit of sexy seduction with lighter backgrounds in colors and fabrics that set the springtime mood.
Big Floral: think colorful, large florals for this trend. These florals are perfect for transforming from daytime to nighttime chic in all-over silhouettes, perfect for matching sets from pants to skirt suits and more.
Tropical Floral: We just entered winter, and this trend already has warm vacay days dancing in my mind. The tropical and exotic florals offered in this floral trend are colorful, bold, and very on the nose for prints you typically see when s/s rolls around. It’s expected, and I’m okay with that (as long as we can still travel in 2022).
Some takeaways from this trend report: wear floral whenever you want and get the most out of your floral prints by investing in transition florals that are multi-seasonal. There are many styles, color options, and ways to add floral to your wardrobe. Which floral prints will you be reaching for this season?
