Summer is all about playing with patterns. This season we are seeing a lot of tribal prints, and true Fashionistas knows leopard print never goes out of style. But while these patterns are fun, nothing says summer like a feminine floral print. Floral patterns have always been a staple, worn by everyone from hippies to Jackie Kennedy, and the pattern is infamously used by fashion icons like Diane von Furstenberg. This season, Fashionistas have been rocking all sorts of floral patterns that oddly resemble grandma’s shabby-chic curtains. (I promise this is a compliment.)
