Thrift Inspiration- Doing it Vogue Style-Micro Florals

Vogue has recently re-introduced its 'More dash than cash' feature, which used to appear years ago and is revisited again this season. This month's feature is on 'Micro Florals' which is going to be a big trend for this summer.

It's a great stylish classic, which can be worn on skirts, shirts, dresses and tops and is great if you can find a vintage piece, especially if its a Liberty or Laura Ashley piece.

Inspired by this and going through my wardrobe, I only had 'big florals' and fancied tapping into the trend, through thrifting of course!!


So I was pleased to pick up this camisole top by Target for only £1 at the PDSA charity shop and also this gorgeous Ralph Lauren tiered cotton skirt for only £3!!


The ideal way to wear micro florals is with an oversized boyfriend style blazer, a biker jacket or denim. Will you tap into this trend for summer?

I'm really not sure yet. These mini-florals still remind me of the original 90210. I'm sure I'll eventually ease into them - I'll keep you posted :)

Floral prints are a summer perennial for me even if they are not in vogue. I love any floral print but I do have a special fondness of 50s style cabbage roses, micro or maxi doesn't really matter that much. I hope you are enjoying the Easter break :)

Anika said...

Ooh yes, definitely, I love the idea of micro florals...not such a big fan of large floral print.

Love the camisole you thrifted. It would be perfect with a leather jacket.

You've inspired me to thrift for some micro florals, thanks!

I love this look! Hey, remember when it was a biiig thing back in the '80s and also through the '90s for a while? Though in the '90s I think the trend was for black & white (or black & beige, black & cream, etc.) mini florals. Some of my favorite clothes from those eras were in this pattern.

When I met my husband a couple of years ago, I remember wearing a micro floral Ralph Laurent blouse right after we got engaged. This print brings back some happy memories for me!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Anchibride-yes, I remember the trend back then too! Mind you, I like the modern styles of now though!
