Are 2017 Florals Actually Groundbreaking?

You've probably read the Devil Wears Prada quote plenty of times this season, so I'll spare you. But I am kind of amazed at how groundbreaking florals really are this spring. They have been reborn. Until this year I considered prints and florals to be completely off limits, but the intricate designs, gorgeous embroidery and flow-y fabrics have turned me over to the dark side. I'll yell it from the mountain tops (or the rooftop of my Murray Hill high rise): My name is Rachel and I <3 florals. This stunning ankle-grazer makes me feel like chic pioneer woman about to take a spin around the Maypole. Throw it on with your highest platforms and rock it to anything from a girls brunch to a MDW wedding. It just works. You don't even need underwear!
