Totally Psyched For This Trend: The Return of '90s Florals

It’s been a long time since we’ve rocked graphic floral prints against a black background, but we hold the look fondly in our hearts. After all, it’s what many of us were wearing when we got our first kiss, learned to Rollerblade or saw Speed in theaters.

And with ’90s style making a resurgence (see also: overalls and crop tops) we knew it was only a matter of time before the look came roaring back.

Well, that moment has come. After seeing a smattering of stars out rocking their Cher Horowitz-approved dresses, we spotted three stars in a week giving the look a go. Karlie Kloss showed off her mile-long legs in a Reformation dress patterned with blue chrysanthemums (similar style here).

Miranda Kerr gave a glimpse of her abs and a big smile in her daisy-print Topshop dress. And Emma Watson paired a faux-wrap navy dress dotted with pink peonies with a pair of Ancient Greek sandals.

All three style stars know that the trick to making an old trend look fresh is to keep it from being too literal of an interpretation. So rather than pick a babydoll silhouette or chunky heels, they all opt for the print on modern-cut dresses that define their waist and add simple or contrasting shoes. It also helps that none of them are sporting “The Rachel.”

Tell us: Are you excited for this trend to return? Whose dress is your favorite?
