A huge trend for this coming Spring/Summer is florals! Think summer meadows filled with big flowers and bright colours. They’ve already been widely featured on the catwalks of fashion designers Cavalli and Luella, and have celebrity fans from Alexa Chung to GMTV favourite Lorraine Kelly.
This trend is set to grow faster than the weeds in your garden over the summer, with brighter designs and floatier fabrics emerging. But for now, it’s best to stick to darker florals on thicker fabrics to infuse your wardrobe during early Spring days – we don’t advise you get carried away too far out of summer!
From sundresses to everyday tops, you can work a floral piece into your everyday wear sparingly or in fully force. And of course we can help with this! We have a great range of floral jersey dresses and cute tube skirts, you can team these up with a denim shirt or jeggings to give you a splash of colour.
But an important thing to remember is that you are not a flower! So head to toe floral is never going to work. A great way to get started with this trend is to introduce a ‘statement’ piece, like a floral skirt and match it with a plain T-shirt. Or wear a floral summer dress with a bold, coloured cardy to tone down the look. If you’re looking for an edgier look you can always team up your floral dress with some workman boots or a leather jacket.
