Winter Florals

Florals are usually big news in the SS catwalk shows, but this year they transcended the seasons, and winter florals are a big AW13 trend. They’re a bit different to summer florals, of course.

Winter florals are usually bolder, brighter, and on black. They make a brilliant Autumnal alternative to the geometric and graphic patterns that are around.

And wearing winter florals means you take a little bit of Spring with you into the colder seasons! A dress is the best way to buy into the winter florals trend. But if that’s too much, try a simple top, or even just a pair of shoes or boots.
