Resort 2016 sees one of fashion's perennial fixtures come to life in three-dimensional embroidery

Florals are never groundbreaking regardless of the season, but there's a certain charm to blooms that keeps us coming back for more be it spring, resort or fall. Tiny flowers peppered on dresses instantly plays up femininity, while big bold flowers make for a daring or elegant ensemble depending on how it's paired. 

This season's blooms however, are decidedly distinctive in nature — three-dimensional flowers appliquéd and embroidered on tops, dresses and bags present a dynamic new take on the well-loved classic. Valentino — the master of embroidery and whimsy — enlivens the little black dress with bouquets, while Topshop Unique puts a twist on the leather mini with beadwork and sequins. 

Even if you've amassed an arsenal of floral outfits over the seasons, freshen up your selection with these blooms that quite literally, stand out.
