Floral prints have taken the fashion world by storm for the last year. Now the print is evolving into the next trend: floral applique. The trick to this trend is to combine fresh silhouettes and modern shapes with rosettes and appliques. The blend of traditional applique and modern lines ensure that your look is neither old-fashioned nor too kitschy. Romantic, feminine, and seriously girly-girl, appliques are boho floral gone girly glam.

Take the floral applique trend into autumn. This wool turtleneck dress features rosettes and fringe trim. Long open-knit sleeves make it a great transitional dress. Pair with heels to dress up or cozy boots to dress down.

Young, yet polished, this party dress kicks up its heels with pleated rosettes and subtle metallic shimmer. A grosgrain ribbon defines your waist, while a full, pleated skirt balances the slim, strapless bodice.
