Floral Applique

As seen at some of the most beautiful Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 fashion shows like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Chanel, designers have been growing gardens on their clothing by adding beautiful floral applique to their dresses, shoes and bags. It’s time to forget floral print and upgrade to floral applique, a process in which additional fabric is sewn onto a design, creating a decorative 3D effect.

My floral applique shirt dress is by MSGM (same brand here) but I found few other blossoming pieces that you can wear now and into the fall.  Also see below collage of runway looks for inspiration.

So go ahead and replace your prints with these edgier embellishments for haute fashion upgrade:
