A Bed Of Roses—The Season’s Most Adorable Print!

Written by Deepa SajnaniMay 26, 2014
If Spring 2014 runways are anything to go by, it was blooming roses all the way. From the most devoured garden shrub to a summer essential our closets can’t get enough of, rose prints have taken over the entire floral gamut. And we’re not complaining. Take your pick from ultra feminine buds to oversized plush posies as we’ve rounded up some of the best rose prints for you this season.

The bigger the better

Rose up your monotones

Go all out and flaunt your biggest blooms! This skater dress from koovs.com hits all the right notes and is uber cute, too. A tip: stay away from large prints if you have a fuller figure. This look rings in plenty of fun for a girl’s night out. We’d ask you to team it with delicate accessories like a charm bracelet and diamond tops and finish it with nude stilettoes.

The rosy sundress

This light-as-air summer dress is the perfect staple for the scorching heat. Sporting an itsy-bitsy all over rose print in garden hues, it’s comfortable and stylish. The ruffled top does wonders to give a lean frame more volume, and the short hemline keeps it sexy, yet subtle.

Garden party roses

This floral maxi is the perfect choice for those endless garden tea parties. It works well for all body types as the long length offsets the large rose prints. Opt for a contrasting bold tangerine waist to break the look.

At the Lakmé Fashion Week Spring Resort 2014, Anju Modi gave the quintessential rose a magical touch. This pastel blue and candy pink lehenga might just be becoming every bride’s choice for the big day. We love how Anju balances the structured choli with equally feminine and thread worked rose motifs all over.

Blooming retro

Rose up your monotones

Your posies don’t always have to be in your face. Trust Tanya Sharma to add delicate touches of neon blue rose motifs, set against a sheer blouse top. The canvas soles, oversized glasses and pocketed midi skirt show us just how to keep it retro, with a touch of femininity.

While we’ve bet our bottom dollar on the classic black and white look, this skater dress by Dorothy Perkins adds a beautiful touch of lady-like with its blush pink rose print. A great length and cut, it works for almost every body type.

Changing my career to fashion at the age of 27 was a risk that I'm glad I took! I don't think there is any substitute for hard work. I can be overly shy and self conscious one day and feel like I can conquer the world the next. You have to try my caramel pudding and chicken soup and don't even dare playing charades with me—I'm super competitive. I love what I do and am always looking for a way to take it up a notch!
