Back to Nature

Who doesn’t love the great outdoors? Well, okay, it’s not for everyone, but here’s a way of getting close to nature, without, well, getting close to nature! Wear it!

From shell to leaf prints, to hints of animals here and there, this is nature style at its very best. And no florals here. Think nature – but no flowers, okay?

So, think leaf prints, like this fab palm print on this beautiful midi dress from French Connection (£125). It’s edgy, contemporary, but still brings you up close and personal with nature!
