Looks We Love: Floral Frocks With Full Skirts


Are we just feeling nostalgic for the romance of past fashions or are these full bodied floral frocks reminiscent of the strapless party dresses popular in the 1950s? Bold flowery prints, fitted sweetheart tops, and skirts that go out for days, it looks like the style is back and being worn with a few contemporary alterations. For 2013, opt for the look in a more dressed up fabric with a print that is fresh and modern. Lucy Liu did just that in a whimsical Carolina Herrera ball gown at the 2013 Golden Globes, Sophie Ellis-Bextor in a bright rose print dress, and Daisy Lowe with her sultry Amy Adams copy-cat Dolce & Gabbana ‘Sera’ frock at the Elle Fashion Awards. This 50's throwback silhouette is fun and flirty, perfect for spring and summer. Pair your dress with chunky, sky high heels to add a bit of edge to the seemingly sweet style .
