We know it, you know it, Miranda Priestly knows it - florals for spring aren't particularly groundbreaking. However, despite fashion's greatest muse having had many iterations throughout the decades, this season is different, and we have the likes of Alexander McQueen, Richard Quinn, Akris, Kenzo, Marni, and many more to thank for the reimagining of florals for Spring/Summer 2024 - in the most, dare I say, groundbreaking way. 

From Y2K-style rosette appliques at Balmain to literal flowers sown onto occasionwear dresses at Simone Rocha, the drama is in the details. Floral fashion has been synonymous with youthful prints and boho looks for years. However, this season's get ready to incorporate a chicer and more elevated version of florals into your wardrobe - that, dare I say it, would surpass any judgment from Ms. Priestly herself.

For those looking for more wearable ways to interpret the trend, look no further than the catwalk and high street alike for all the inspiration and must-have pieces to elevate your spring wardrobe basics. Think choker necklaces with thick roses, à la Suki Waterhouse wearing Philosophy, or Grece Ghanem's recent maxi flower mini dress.
