Blue skies, sunshine, birds chirping, freshly cut grass and flowers blooming; welcome to Spring. Florals are a perennial favourite for the season, I have been exploring the trend and have created two looks with a semi-retro twist, since I’m prone of golden age thinking.
Florals can be difficult and you might find yourself faced with a series of dilemmas: What kind of flowers are on trend? What size should they be? How do you accessorise a bolder print? I think that you should enjoy it, embrace the florals, they’re meant to be fun!
This dress is the epitome of elegance with a high round neck, fixed waist and full pleated skirt, showcasing a beautiful array of pastel flowers. The outfit can be made casual by the addition of a denim jacket, which is another wardrobe must-have! The accessories help to pick out the pink and lilac tones in the dress to make it even more eye-catching.
This dress is fun, playful and the A-line silhouette also helps to give a vintage feel. The plainer denim top helps to balance the bold and bright print of the skirt, whilst also complimenting the colours. The accessories also showcase some of the shades in the floral print, mostly opting for milder mint tones. The stylishly woven floppy hat helps to complete the look, so that it’s suitable for the beach, whilst also being boho chic!
