Say it with Flowers!

Floral print is a big trend this season – from jackets to dresses, sunglasses to swimwear, flowers will be everywhere. Spring means flowers in the garden,why not your clothes as well!?

There are loads of floral print items to choose from – bold and bright or muted and monochrome (yes, there are black and white flowers on offer!). So, we’ve broken down the floral trend into categories, and picked our favourite items in each.


Floral cover ups

This lovely Betty Jackson Black cover-up in pale blue, bottom,  is a subtle way to wear flowers, £45, Debenhams, and the Rocha John Rocha Kimono Style Jacket, top left, £40, Debenhams,  is perfect for spring. Or maybe you want a bit more of a cover up with this H! by Henry Holland quilted jacket, top right, £40, Debenhams.


Flora trouser suits

Make a bold statement in these fabulously floral trouser suits. H&M offer a bold pansy print suit of tapered trousers, £14.99, and peplum top, £12.99, for a bright look. The blue floral suit of a slouchy jacket, £40, and trousers, £49,  from Butterfly by Matthew Williamson at Debenhams, would make a great spring wedding outfit.


Floral Dresses 1

Make a subtle floral statement in a pretty little dress, with a monochrome pattern, instead of a bright floral. New Look have loads of cute little dresses, including this black and white daisy print dress, left, £19.99, and this sublte multi-coloured sundress, right, £12.99. Or try Warehouse at Debenhams, for this blue and white trailing flower pattern dress, middle, £55.


Floral Accessories

If you don’t want to go all out floral, then try a simple accessory in a floral print, from a handbag to a pair of shoes! We love these floral print wedges, £35, from Dorothy Perkins. The black and white digital print rose bag, £38, by Julien MacDonald at Debenhams is a subtle nod to the trend. The floral print sunglasses, £16, and floral studded slipper shoes, £28, both from TopShop are fun!
