Florals for spring? Groundbreaking — at least the new oversized iteration we’ve been seeing everywhere, especially on last night’s Oscars 2023 red carpet. Trust us, this is one trend you’ll absolutely want to get in on, as it’s fresh, fun, and blooming big time for spring 2023.

Floral prints are one thing. They can be hard to wear, hard to pair with other patterns, and easily fall flat against other spring trends. Rosettes, however, are the complete opposite — they’re fun, they’re easier to wear than you might think, and they’re anything but, well, flat. That’s because the rosette trend refers to the use of large (or small) appliquéd florals sewn onto everything from bodysuits, headbands, shoes, and, the most obvious canvas, dresses, as evident at the 95th Academy Awards. 

Stars like Halle Berry, Michelle Yeoh, Suki Waterhouse, and Cara Delevingne really leaned into this spring 2023 trend that was also all over the runways during fashion month. Designers like Sandy Liang turned up the rosettes in New York while Prada made a case for the pretty detailing during its Milan Fashion Week show; each offered a slightly different approach on how to wear these new florals for spring, but the impact was all the same. Adorned, sculptural florals, of all shapes and sizes, are in, and they’re here to make fashion exactly what it should be: fun.

Unlike traditional spring florals, rosettes feel a bit more artistic — in my opinion, at least — and thus, are also more impactful when it comes to their presence in the fashion world. Maybe it's their 3D nature that makes them like work of art, but there’s no denying that the decorative blooms take everything to another level of opulence. Take this simple bodysuit, for example — it still feels chic and timeless, but the addition of the rosette on the neckline adds a trend-forward element that’s certain to garner you endless compliments. 

The nice thing about this spring 2023 trend is that it’s also totally versatile; you can wear it on the red carpet as evident at the Oscars, but you can also work it into your day-to-day attire, too. And as the detailing continues to bloom in popularity, more brands will unveil their own take, which means more options for you.
