Just like Miranda Priestly said in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ “Floral for Spring? Groundbreaking! However I’m really loving all the different types of floral there is, some places are mixing the florals print with china prints such as Marks and Spencers where I work. They have a whole collection called china blue where it has florals mixed with a blue china print. Places like Topman, Zara and River Island have also jumped on this trend. To floral bomber jackets (which are my personal favourite at the moment) to floral trousers.
Floral bombers are something that I’m loving right now, I recently brought the Zara floral bomber/jacket on my birthday wish list which has very stylised flowers on the front of it that compare to that of a Vanitas painting (pictured to the right) I love the style and the colours of this jacket a big winner from Zara! Topman has also done an amazing floral bomber/Harrington jacket which I fell in love with instantly. I just love how vibrant and colourful the floral theme is and how it all blends together. It’s a definitely going to be a purchase of mine!
Another few items that have caught my eye with the floral trend are a floral sweatshirt from, yes you’ve guessed it Zara. Zara do floral so well, they have such a wide range of different styles I love this white sweatshirt with the single red rose and rose leaves. I love the contrast against the white, it’s a perfect dress down sweatshirt to throw on over skinny jeans or black skinny joggers.
Another winner from Zara is these floral trousers. I’ve always wanted a floral pair of trousers that aren’t too out there. This subtle print of floral is just enough, teamed with a simple plain white t-shirt with sandals and sunglasses you have the perfect summer outfit. A perfect combination for a holiday outfit in the sun!
If you’re not brave enough to go full floral then add a bud a of floral instead of a whole rockery full of flowers. By just adding accessories to your outfits that have floral design on them, you will then be immersing yourself with the floral trend and adding a touch more colour to your outfits. Why not add a floral bow tie from ASOS to your outfit? Or why not add a floral kick to your step and go with a floral shoe from ASOS instead?
