First of all, it would do well to keep in mind that tropical-inspired floral prints are going to be hot for 2015. While 2014 saw more feminine and delicate blooms, an edgier and more exotic look is coming next year. The following designs from Erdem, who won this year’s British Fashion Award for Women’s Wear Designer of the Year, show a darker, more mysterious spring look.

This does not mean, of course, that delicate and feminine are out. In fact, Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2015 collection showed that sweet and gentle are still very much in fashion- albeit in a more structured form.
