From bold florals and 3D flower embellishments to leafy prints and colours inspired by nature, there’s a lot of focus on botanicals this year. Whilst floral patterns aren’t exactly a groundbreaking new look for spring, the trend is definitely bolder, brighter, louder and more prominent than it’s ever been.
This seasonal look has been a staple in every woman’s wardrobe since, well, the beginning of time. But for SS17, expect a twist which includes flora and foliage of every kind. So forget predictable floral prints and look out for verdant frame fronts, leaf inspired looks, woodland design concepts, tempting tropicals, with deep forest greens and earthy browns. 2017 is all about wild and wonderful nature!
Here are some of our favourite looks to try in prescription glasses and sunglasses.
Dolce & Gabbana Banana Leaf Sunglasses
These Dolce & Gabbana DG4287 sunglasses feature a bold and beautiful banana leaf print, set to make you stand out from the crowd this summer. Matching prints are super hot this season and Dolce & Gabbana have been the biggest pioneers of this stand-out trend.
They’ve been promoting tropicals and botanicals since SS16, and this year we see the addition of enlarged leaf patterns, rich and sumptuous greens that remind us of freshly cut grass, huge sunflowers, exaggerated rose print, and crazy embellishments that create showstopping garments and accessories. These fashionable frames are the hottest things to come off the D&G catwalks, and they just ooze designer style. The banana leaf is set to be truly iconic, so get your hands on these frames before they sell out!
Vera Wang Luxe ZLATA Leaf Coloured Glasses
If you’re looking for prescription eyewear that celebrates the beauty of nature without being too over the top, these Vera Wang specs are the perfect frames for the hot and current botanical trend. They feature a simple, stylish frame with a chic cateye inspired silhouette, finished off with natural colours that are easy to match with anything in your wardrobe. These elegant glasses are everyday glasses; they blend in seamlessly with daytime or evening wear and the lush green colourway will add a fresh, fashion-forward edge to your springtime ensembles.
Bvlgari Fantasy Green Sunglasses
Green is such a great colour to try for spring and with the turn of the season looming, green specs should be at the top of everyone’s wishlist. These Bvlgari ‘Fantasy’ sunglasses add a fun fairy tale twist to the botanicals moodboard, evoking scenes of wild woodland and beautiful forests. The earthy tones and mottled browns make this style so much more wearable, and can be styled with most spring / summer pieces. An on-trend accessory that is timeless and classic at the same time.
Dolce & Gabbana Rose Print Sunglasses
Dolce & Gabbana are the go-to brand for anything floral. And for SS17, they bring us a few new floral printed styles such as this stunning frame. Combined with the pretty leaf greens, this pattern is the ultimate botanist creation. If bold banana leaf and verdant colourways aren’t quite your thing, you can channel this catwalk trend with some pretty flowers in your accessories collection. Get the look with these super chic Dolce & Gabbana designer sunglasses, made with a colourful frame front and arms, finished with a gold tone D&G logo for the ultimate high-end finish.
