Flower power is back in a deliciously dark way. Paired with black, these blooms strut their stuff with runway style inspired by the spring collections of Gucci (shown above), Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, Versace and more. The look is fresh and froufrou-free with a dash of gothic romance mixed in for good measure and dramatic effect.
