When it comes to fashion, trends come and go (... and come again) but some trends manage to stay and last longer than others. The la fleur (flower in french) trend, as my dad's Belgian friends described the other night, was definitely one of those ones with staying power. From small to larger prints or even the 3-Dimensional popping ones, la fleur have been quite a hit on and off the runway for slightly more than a year if I didn't miscalculate. Plus, there is no need to wait for the spring sun to shine... Designers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Erdem have been famous for incorporating the la fleur aspect into their collections all seasons round. The once girly-associated-trend has finally left it's prissy days behind and gained it's part in the edgy and luxe world.

As for my own take, the darker and more sophisticated la fleur look has always been preferred. For today’s look, I've combined some dark abstract la fleur prints along with the 3D belt. When I first purchased these pieces, I never knew that I was going to wear them very often! I usually opt for simple plain colored apparels but as the trend grows on myself, I find it amazing on how la fleur can take simple pieces to the next level. If it wasn’t for this post, I might not even realize how often I post la fleur pieces of all sorts for the blog.
I doubt that you guys are shy to wear out the la fleur trend, but it you are looking for ways to incorporate them into your wardrobe here are some tips :
- Start with accessories. Fleur belts, necklaces or even just a tiny ring can easily perk up your basic outfits.
- A smidge of print can go a long way. Shop for pieces with a smidge of la fleur details on the collar, sleeve ends, etc or smaller sized print fabrics!
- Lastly, if you tend to stay away from bolder colors, go for monochrome fleur pieces.
