Fabulously Floral!

Every Spring one of the biggest trends to hit the catwalks and high streets is florals. Big ones, small ones and everything in between. Whether it’s on clothes, bags, walls, notebooks or shoes, the floral print is a Springtime hit time and time again. And there must be a reason for this. Spring is the season of hope and new beginnings and blooming flowers represent new life and vitality in a way no other print can. Injecting a fabulous floral print into your wardrobe can bring old pieces back to life and bring you bang up to date, and the range from Next makes this really easy to do. 


The question is, how do you go about wearing it? 


In general there are two main options as to how to go about injecting some floral fun into your wardrobe. Option A is to go for one statement piece, such as this floral tea dress, and pair it with something simple such as black opaque tights (as it is very doubtful that this English weather will warrant bare legs) and either an old faithful leather jacket to add an edge to the outfit (such as this gorgeous one, also from Next), or a more tailored blazer for formal occasions.

Option B is to go for clashing prints. Now, this one isn’t for the faint-hearted and it can take a lot of courage to step out in an array of wonderful, colourful prints. To dip your toe into the world of clashing prints, you could team the tapered trousers with the Poppy Print Court shoes (below) and a simple black tank-top and structured blazer on top to keep the focus on the bottom half. This would certainly get you noticed but isn’t too over the top!

Otherwise, if you wanted to go all out you could pair the trousers with a floral top, something with a smaller print and a pop of colour, to really make a statement. Alternatively, you could add a stripe somewhere into the mix - florals and stripes look fantastic together and would definitely put you ahead of fashion crowd. 


There are some really gorgeous ways to add some floral fun to your wardrobe this season, I'm definitely going to be trying out some new ways to play with it! What are favourite ways to wear florals? I'd love to know!


Talk soon and hope you're having a delightful day!
