Flowers flooded the runway in the 2011 Milan Fashion Week as D&G showcased its collection for Summer 2011.
Yes, flowers were everywhere. Quite literally. According to the D&G press release, the women’s collection is a ‘day in a garden’.
Blooms took over center stage as the models walked the runway. There were even live and artificial flowers at the edge of the catwalk that give off that garden feel. Floral prints on blouses, skirts, frocks and scarves gave the models and ultra feminine look, a must-achieve style for 2011.
But if you can’t afford pricey D&G at least for now, you can still recreate the look for less by going for real flowers. So get your antihistamines ready and be fashion forward with live flowers to don on your outfit.
In a tropical country like the Philippines, you simply can’t go wrong with flowers. Even if you’re freezing in cold weather, you can still have your flowers and wear them too.
A flower behind the ear would be the simplest way to do it. Tucked behind one ear and in front a curtain of flowing hair, a single flower can put the oomph to whatever outfit you’re wearing.
You can even weave them with ribbons or leaves to create a necklace or a bracelet. Put them on the handles of your bag, which is trés chic. Or you can attach it to the strap of a wedge sandal (as shown in the photo) for a flirty and feminine look.
If you are a man and are hesitant to wear flowers, you can put it on as a boutonniere and no one will question your masculinity. Better yet, send them to a woman who likes wearing flowers.
There are so many ways that you can do with flowers. Flowers are not only good as gifts or as home decors, they can also be pretty embellishments in any outfit. Recreate runway designs in your own way by using flowers to adorn your garb.
