Bright Tropical Florals & Tassels Will Be “In” this Spring
by Susan Neuhalfen
Wondering what the next big thing in fashion will be this spring? Rebecca Grunewald at the Palm Tree Boutique in the Denton Square said the cold-shoulder and off-the-shoulder blouses that you’ve seen all winter will continue. This look will also be in the dresses that you see. The big thing, however, is a trend that only some of us will remember from our childhood.
“Everything we’re seeing are in bright, floral print colors,” said Rebecca. “While the colors in the print are like the 1970s, the print is the tropical floral much like what was worn in the 1980s.”
This print applies mostly to blouses and dresses which, while still off the shoulder, are free flowing. Manager Daina Byers says the length of the the dresses will be “midi”, right at our above the knee.
“The style, from the cut to the print, is kind of bohemian,” said Daina. “You can top the look with a kimono-style jacket that looks great with either dresses or pants.”
The icing, according to Rebecca, is the addition of tassels, pompoms and fringe to everything from blouses to earrings and shoes. Though the look began last year, they are continuing this spring in bright and bold colors.
