This Throwback Detail Is Quietly Becoming the Biggest Summer Trend
Both Kate Middleton and Taylor Swift are on board.
Maybe it’s because we’re suddenly nostalgic for the carefree (and bill-less) days of childhood, but right now, our brains are stuck in the ‘90s. Luckily, it seems fashion is right there with us. For months years, our favorite throwback trends have been creeping back into our wardrobe, so when we noticed that the ‘90s-esque daisy detail was popping up again? Our time-travel-wishing-selves were ready to go all out.
Of course, you might be wondering, “Uh, how are daisies — a flower that has grown in the ground for centuries, and continues to do so to this day — a ’90s trend?” And to that, we'd like to turn your attention to several things. Limited Too! dELiA*s! Drew Barrymore on the red carpet! All the diaries we scribbled in, lamenting about our crushes and failed math tests!
White petals with a bit of yellow in the middle were everywhere during this decade, and they made our lives exponentially cuter and fun. And, honestly, we could really use some fun right now.
Considering that both Taylor Swift and Kate Middleton are on board, and there are tons of daisy dresses, shirt, and even shoes available to shop, it’s time to embrace this flower for summer 2020. Unlike low-rise jeans, you won’t regret this one.
When Taylor Swift shared a photo of herself drinking wine, fans wondered if her outfit hinted at a collaboration with Katy Perry, who has a new song called "Daisies." However, we were busy trying to track down a dupe for that sold-out Free People sweater.
This Detail Was Everywhere On the Runways
Taylor might have been inspired to make the purchase after seeing the flower all over the runways. For example, Paco Rabanne favored the flower for spring 2020.
Even Kate Middleton Is a Fan
Kate Middleton was way ahead of us when it comes to this trend. She wore a daisy Boden dress for her family's Christmas card, and broke it out again while chatting on a royal Zoom call.
This Print Has Been Popping Up For the Past Few Months
Will we ever stop dreaming about Yara Shahidi's statement-making look from last January? The answer is no. That daisy printed Moncler Genius Richard Quinn jacket ($2.095; bergdorfgoodman.com) will definitely go down in fashion history.
There Are So Many Ways to Wear It
Thanks to street style stars and influencers, we have so much inspiration for how to take this trend into modern times. Instead of a '90s maxi or babydoll, we'll be giving matching sets a try.
It's Easy to Incorporate Into Any Outfit
Not ready to go full out? Ease your way into the trend with daisy print shoes, daisy jewelry, or even daisy socks.
