It’s winter, and there aren’t that many flowers around, so make up for that by wearing them. Wintry florals. Floral prints are not just for spring, and this season, they’re going to be big.
Thanks to the Victoriana vibe that will be in the stores soon, we’ll all be embracing floral prints, okay? And on black they can look less, well, twee, than on paler backgrounds.
When it comes to this season’s florals, anything goes. It’s not a case of ditsy or big, or those wallpaper style prints from last year – it’s ALL of them!
Florals are here, so get used to it, and give it a try! New Look’s cute ‘busy’ floral print looks great on this simple tea dress (£tbc). Bigger rose and peony florals work perfectly on BHS’s prom dress (£60). Also at BHS, we are loving these big supersize monochrome wintry florals on this palazzo pants and shell top combo (£35 and £20). Don’t stop at prints though – add a floral necklace as a final flourish (£14.99, New Look).
H&M have some amazing wintry florals in already. This brilliant, mainly yellow on black print, can be found on a short smocked dress (£24.99), or a floaty long-sleeved maxi (£29.99). Or maybe a rose print floral bomber (£24.99, New Look) is enough to liven up jeans and a t-shirt? New Look’s wintry red and blue winter florals pencil skirt (£14.99) is a great bold workwear wardrobe addition. And we love these floral shoes from Debenhams (£tbc).
At JOY, we love this Peter Pan collar floral shift dress (£36), and at H&M there’s a more subtle, sprig floral print to be found on these fab wide trousers (£29.99), and also on this two-tone floral dress (£24.99). Debenhams‘ Red Herring tropical floral shift is cute (£30).
But we are already coveting New Look’s 3D daisy bag (£tbc).
BHS’s turtleneck printed jersey dress (£30) is wintry florals perfection – it looks super-cosy. French Connection’s Victoriana style chiffon blouse has embroidered florals on there – perfect if you are not a huge fan of this trend. H&M’s off the shoulder red floral top (£12.99) is made for jeans. Perhaps a wee floral choker (£5.99, New Look) is enough for you? Or maybe a big, bold wintry florals jumpsuit (£39.50, was £78, One O Eight @ JOY) is your thing?
