The Niche "Pretty" Trend We Spotted All Over New York, Milan, and Paris

With florals becoming overly saturated, innovation can be tricky to find. But the fall/winter 2022 and spring/summer 2023 runways are ushering in a much-needed change, as designers brought out the use of appliquéd florals en masse. We spotted the trend all across the fashion globe—from Prada in Milan to Sandy Liang in New York. And while pretty and ultra-flirty details were a common theme in many collections, we were still surprised to see 3D florals take off as much as they did. Usually, niche trends like this can be hard to find on the mass market, but since the end of Fashion Month, it's gained major steam with many shoppable options available now.

Whether you're looking for a fresh-off-the-runway piece on Moda Operandi or a quick affordable buy at Zara, you'll be pleased with the finds below. Even with the simplest of looks, a floral detail can drastically elevate an outfit. Gone are the days of cliché prints and in are rosette-adorned dresses, chokers, and hair accessories. Keep scrolling to get in on the blooming trend.
