Floral print hasn’t just been given a stamp of approval from celebrities and fashion influencers around the globe, it’s been validated by the on-screen Anna Wintour as well. Remember Miranda Priestly’s line “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!”? Well, that rule has been amended to florals for all seasons and we’re on board! The balmy, summer print receives as much appreciation during the rains as it does in the summers. Available in a variety of permutations, my question to you is, will floral print ever go out of style? I’ll leave you to figure it out whilst also taking you on a virtual tour through Katrina Kaif‘s envy-inducing and versatile “floral-wardrobe”.
The actress has favoured the print more than once and with a fresh take each time. From traditional occasions to casual, day time events to star-studded affairs, Katrina has a floral printed number for every occasion. Sometimes, the blooms are loud and in-your-face and sometimes subtle hints that end up making a statement anyway, which makes it safe to say that Katrina’s closet has no dearth for this all-rounder season-friendly print.
Turning heads in a bold red hue, Katrina, for an event in Mumbai, picked a gorgeous full-length dress from Gauri and Nainika‘s resort 2019 collection. The dress came with a dramatic centre slit that gave a peek of her toned calves. Cinched at the waist with a square belt, the ensemble featured an abstract floral print in shades of pastel pink and white. To keep up with the monochromatic colour scheme of the outfit, the star opted for red heels to round off her look.
Back in 2018, Katrina kickstarted the promotional journey of her feature Zero while giving a ‘clash-course’ on how to mix two prints. For her first look, she picked a canary yellow blouse with a floral print and subtle foliage motifs crafted by designer Prabal Gurung. The loose frills of the sleeves added a romantic touch to the blouse that she teamed with a boss-like, checkered pencil skirt in grey. Don’t you just love the breathability of this outfit?
Looking regal in this powder pink six-yard staple is Katrina’s Sabyasachi saree that makes for an impactful look despite its pale hue and sober print. Floral designs do make for a noteworthy print, be it any style and this look is proof. Adding some more oomph to her ethnic ensemble is the Sabyasachi monogrammed belt cinched at the waist.
Who said attending lavish traditional affairs needed one to stick to extravagant embellishments and ornaments? Take a cue from Katrina’s floral-printed lehenga set by Anita Dongre which was a beautiful canvas of large and tiny hibiscus flowers in shades of yellow, muted blue and turquoise. The blouse that the star paired with her lehenga was adorned by white sequins and the light-weight dupatta also had hints of flowers.
Back in the day when one could go out and about without the fear of contracting the unspeakable, Katrina was spotted at a promotional event in a girl-next-door kinda style. Her pick for the occasion was a Dolce and Gabbana babydoll dress that came with a sweetheart neckline. The multicoloured floral print of the dress was undeniably the show-stopping element of her outfit and you can’t disagree!
Giving babydoll dresses another try is this look by designer Rudraksh Dwivedi that was a standout for its intricately embroidered florals. Micro daisies in shades of cream, white and green were woven onto this balmy number that she teamed with a cropped blazer making the look a tad edgier!
Did we mention that feathery, floral lehengas make for statement-making ethnic looks? This reception ready, flamboyant lehenga set with painted blooms was brought to life by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. And Katrina’s infused charm only upped the ante of the look! Said it once and I’ll say it again, floral print is a timeless classic that works well with any style!
