Sydney Sweeney's Minidress Is So On-Trend Thanks to One Specific Detail

When it comes to fashion, Sydney Sweeney is always full of surprises. The 25-year-old actress was spotted in wintery London sporting an under-the-radar trend that's about to be absolutely everywhere: rosettes. 

Sweeney's bubblegum-pink strapless silk minidress by Magda Butrym is a prime example of the motif that can be traced back to decorative rose shapes that adored footwear in the 1600s. Who What Wear has been tracking the latest resurgence of this niche pretty trend as seen on the fall/winter 2022 and spring/summer 2023 runways, and now that it's awards season, rosettes are about to be in full bloom. 

If flowers for spring feel too obvious, but you love the look of a floral statement, try adding a few fancy rosettes to your wardrobe. Stars like Hailey Bieber, Eddie Redmayne, and Mindy Kaling (who also works with Sweeney's stylist, Molly Dickson) demonstrate how this simple floral detail can instantly elevate an outfit no matter the occasion. 

Ahead, browse dresses and tops with rosettes in several sizes and colors. We can't wait to see this trend grow into full bloom.

Sydney Sweeney's dress is so sweet. Don't forget her sheer Calzedonia tights.

So sculptural, we can't believe it's Zara.

Rosettes can be pretty in pink, purple, or any color, really. 

From a basic black tank to beautifully blooming. 

The red rosette on this Rodarte dress is removable, but why would you ever want to?
