Ladylike flower prints so elegant and season appropriate can easily carry an outfit on their own, especially in the case of a fluid chiffon dress: add a couple of accessories and you are good to go.
But when it comes to separates, it’s always intriguing to see ensembles with a bit of zest. Clashing prints: florals and checks, florals and stripes, florals on florals; mixing in trends utility, athleisure; blending textures and materials – it all makes a stylish and fashionable look.
Ruffles and blooms – a perfect romance-infused combination, update it with a strict shape – a high waisted pencil midi in geometric plaid – for contrast.
Pinks have been prominent on the runways, so throw on a jacket in candy floss shade to ground the prints.
No need to compromise on flowers if you prefer monochrome. River Island has got you covered with this relaxed pair of white trousers in sizeable contoured black print. Complete the look with some warm weather essentials: 70s style round shades, a wide brim hat, lace-up sandals and a mini cross body bag.
You are sure to grab everyone’s attention in a bold floral print coat. Wear it over a dress in solid colour or subtle contrasting print (i.e. herringbone), to not detract from your cover-up.
Elevate your look with statement accessories and shoes for after-dark glam.
Before the temperature properly climbs far above zero, keep those woollen pieces on and pair your floral shirt with a burgundy blazer and mustard skirt- another popular colour spotted on FW16 runways. Incorporate some quirky accessories like Woodsun’s Rosewood sunglasses and backless slip-on loafers to make your look unique.
Bare your pins with a floral mini skirt, to make it weather appropriate wear it with a knit and a variation on Fall’s velvet trend– a corduroy cropped jacket. The “it” shoe of the season – metallic loafer, a compact backpack and a silk scarf will refine this light and fresh styling.
