Spring Florals

It’s Spring, the weather is, er, changeable, but the flowers are out there – so let’s celebrate with spring florals.

Spring florals are just lovely, agreed? And wearing them makes us feel instantly better – even if it is raining, snowing or hailing!

Spring florals looks great in dresses – perfect for a wedding, ideal for a holiday, as lovely on a prom dress as a maxi dress, and everything inbetween.

It’s the Florals trend!

Spring is in the air! And in my house. I’ve a gorgeous bunch of daffodils in my office, and I am embracing the florals trend in fashion.

Okay, okay, every spring there’s the florals trend – but this year – it’s HUGE! Think sunflower not snowdrop. Think florals on everything, and every type of florals you can think of, and you’ve got this year’s florals trend.

So, where to begin? What florals work for you? How should you wear them? Where and when. Well, let’s break down the florals trend into a few categories of florals, making it much easier for you!

First up, florals don’t always have to be bright and bold. This year sees a fair amount of black and white florals out there, along with muted tones, perhaps black and just one colour on white like this lovely, simple, BHS dress. If you’re not really a floral fan, this is a great way to do the trend.

However, if you DO love a bold, bright in-your-face approach to the florals trend, then embrace it this spring-summer  – and then some! There are bold, bright, busy florals all over the shops. Choose a busy floral, with no background colour visible, just a mass of flowers, or choose a bold colour, with a contrasting bold print.

Keep your florals small and subtle with ditsy prints, or trailing floral prints, which look beautiful on white, and are fresh and spring-like.

Florals don’t need to be white and pretty though – the florals trend works brilliantly on black. Grunge it up with a leather jacket and chunky boots. Black looks great in the summer heat with a tan – and even better with florals on it!

If you like your flowers big, then try big tropical floral prints on dresses and jackets, in pastels or bold shades. Oversized rose prints and poppy prints work.
