Beautiful Florals

Beautifus florals are a comforting fashion choice – but they can have an edge too. It’s not all about floral skirts or dresses. And all beautiful florals aren’t of the English rose or daisy variety. There are beautiful florals that are tropical. Florals look fab on bomber jackets, shoes, bags, wherever you want them.

The beautiful florals trend of this spring summer will bloom into the autumn and winter too. Florals on black, applique, and embroidery florals – look out for them all.

For now, lets think summer, and tropical flower hibiscus looks fantastic against blue on this Superdry bikini (top, £19.99, bottoms, £14.99)

Beautiful florals – which would you choose?

Bardot Style

Have you noticed it’s all about shoulders this season? You better get yours prepped and ready to bare this spring/summer, because off the shoulder, cold shoulder and one shoulder styles are everywhere.

Our favourite – the Bardot style. Named after iconic French actress Brigitte Bardot, because she loved this style, the simple off-the-shoulder look looks best in a plain, black top, teamed with a skirt, or capri pants, perhaps a headscarf, and some big sunnies, mimicking Brigitte’s laidback French Riviera style.

This top from Louche @ JOY  (£14) is perfect.

BUT…there’s more to Bardot style this season than just a simple black top. We love bright, bold colours for spring.

We love patterns and pastels, and everything in-between. Florals, tile prints, aztec prints, stripes – the list is endless!

The great thing about a Bardot style top is that it’s so versatile. Team it with a pencil skirt, a full midi skirt, capri pants, jeans – anything at all!

Pencil and full skirts and capri pants give you that retro feel. Jeans give your top a more casual, laid-back look.

Bardot style dresses are easy spring/summer wear, and can be formal, or not so formal. Debut @ Debenhams‘ monochrome dress is classic Bardot style (£110). New Look’s stripes (£14.99) are a more modern, laid-back take, and H&M’s bright red skater Bardot style number (£29.99) is a statement piece.

bardot style dresses

The perfect Bardot style dress must be a floral one – team with wedges, big sunnies and a straw bag. Perfection.

Maybe a Bardot style neckline on a jumpsuit works for you (£39.99, H&M)? Or a simple plain navy dress – we are in love with this one from H&M (£29.99). And this bold tunic dress with a floppy Bardot style neckline is a great holiday buy (£17.99, New Look).
