It looks like everything in fashion is coming up roses - or anything floral for that matter. Roses, Carnations, Daisies, Peonies; pretty much any flower you would see in a perfectly groomed landscape garden has been utilized in some print recently from clothing to accessories. Whether a small or large pattern, applique, or embroidery, the flowers' vibrant colors have a way of brightening up your entire look and mood.

Erickson Beamon's latest collection, which was featured in Vogue China's June 2012 cover shoot (and then made exclusively for Marissa Collections), is the perfect illustration of this floral fascination.
Magnificently strung together in contrasting color ways with vibrant, neon hues, Beamon's collection provides stunning statement accessories perfect for mixing colors with prints.

So in the upcoming months when summer is in full swing and flowers are in full bloom, look to the peaceful blossoms outside and add a floral accent to your look.

Whether it be a printed top from Alice & Olivia...

or a feminine frock from Zac Posen...
your ensemble will flourish in style, color, and grace.
Be sure to stop and smell the roses,
