I know what you’re thinking – “florals? For spring? Groundbreaking!” Miranda Priestley quotes aside, the floral look is back and here to stay throughout all seasons, so it’s high time that you found a way to incorporate it into your wardrobe. We’ve created this handy guide to get you started.
Choose a hero piece
There’s no rule that says you have to go head-to-toe floral to nail the look, so instead, why not select one bold and beautiful item, to be the hero piece whenever you wear it. These Hobbs Clothing reviews reveal that midi skirts and bold blouses are among the most popular buys and in a floral print they would make ideal statement options.
Embrace a bold aesthetic
If you’re not one to shy away from a striking look, maybe you could consider wearing all-over florals. Something in an athletic style could be a surprise contender, with a flowery-print lounge suit being a contemporary choice, although feminine separates of skirts and tops would also look incredible. Coordinated florals are most definitely not just on the approved wedding outfit list anymore!
Take it to the office
Yes, you read that right…florals for the formal workplace. Keep the majority of your professional armour understated and then experiment with a bold floral jacket or shirt, for maximum impact. If you need to work your way up, start with a botanical lining in one of your jackets and start introducing bolder motifs gently.
Bag it up
Quick, simple and potentially cost-effective, choosing a floral handbag is an instant way to get in on the florals trend. The right blooms on your arm will add fashionable flair to an otherwise understated look, and open up the possibility for other complimentary accessories to be introduced.
If you’re already a vintage fan, you can add floral elements into your wardrobe with ease, while also feeling a little smug that it’s unlikely that anybody else will have the same items of clothing. 1960s’ and 1970s’ clothing make floral motifs an everyday addition but be choosy. We’d keep our eyes peeled for some iconic Mary Quant pieces featuring her daisy motif going cheap to tap into the high-fashion vintage sphere.
Let’s get textural
For a subtle and extra romantic take on the florals look, experiment with materials, rather than patterns. A floral lace will give you the look but in a more tonal and discreet way, and can be used for every occasion. From sweet little T-shirts to full wedding dresses, floral lace is a favourite of fashionistas the world over.
Find time to accessorise
Something as simple as a floral watch strap can be all you need to show off your style credentials without going overboard. A little peek of a pretty strap poking out from under a jumper cuff always looks great and has a knack of making you look even more put together. Enamel earrings work in a similar way and flowery shoes can top everything off perfectly. Just remember that less is more if you are going down the accessory route, and you want everything to work harmoniously, so try choosing one bloom and going from there.
Keep it under wraps
You can adore the floral vibe but not want to drench yourself in it, which is when beautiful lingerie comes in. Pretty, feminine and just for you, floral underwear is a charming way to enjoy this trend, just on the down-low.
Whether you’re a bold bloom lover or a subtle sucker for flowers, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the floral fashion trend right now – just pick the one that’s right for you.
