This summer the floral trend is back and bigger than ever, literally. Designers like D&G, Oscar de la Renta and Monique Lhuillier sent models down the spring/summer 2011 runways in over-sized rose motifs making way for retailers to interpret the trend at affordable prices. A patterned mid-length skirt is the perfect transition piece, while a provocative corset is suddenly much more innocent when matched with the sweet print.

And it should come as no surprise that the ladies of our StyleList Network are already embracing the look -- Karla of Karla's Closet worked a pair of Rebecca Minkoff silk shorts in the bold print while vacationing in Maui.
