There are two types of flowers - annuals and perennials. Annuals flower for one year and then kick up their heels, perennials last year after year.
Floral fashions have often been annual, here for Spring, maybe summer then petering out in the cooler months.
So the chintzy dress is back, with a vengeance and it's going trans-seasonal!
"I'm so confused, I don't know if it's Summer or Winter anymore!!"
Recently, though, florals have been soooo popular, they are becoming perennial, being shown for Autum/Winter collections in Europe. What is the world coming to?!
Vogue are championing this and their article about the chintzy dress shows some of the latest chintzes for the chilly weather.
