The dare-to-wear trend is still big news this season – and double florals are a big focus. Hippy chic, clashing skirts and dresses with panels of fabrics in different floral patterns are right out there for on-trend fashionistas
Blur the edges
Florals are finding their way onto not only leggings, but jeans too. We’re loving the more gentle versions, which create a barely-there look. Try wearing with a flouncy shirt in a shade that blends with your floral jeans.
Star of the show
Let your T-shirt take centre stage. Capped sleeves and slashed necks will hit the mark if they’re in a swirling mass of dazzling eye-catching colour. Showcase your star tee by pairing with black jeans or a drill skirt in any strong block shade.
You don’t have to go all-out with a Hawaiian look to catch the tropical floral wave. Think green fronds and lazy orchids to create a refreshing, light and airy style. Coral tones are big this season and off-the-shoulder designs are particularly lush with subtle tropicana fabrics.
Embrace wartime Land Girl style with a retro midi skirt in a large floral print. You don’t need to wear your hair tucked away in a knotted hanky, but an up-do will add charm – and be sure to show off your waist with a tucked-in T-shirt.
Blooms are adorning not only trainers, but also heels and smart flats for SS16. Look out for the fun Converse Andy Warhol floral trainers with bright pink and red daisy-style blooms on a graffiti-look background. Irregular Choice is a great bet for colourful canvas court shoes.
Big and fresh
New York Fashion Week showcased some beautiful large florals. Wear yours light in pale hues on a statement shirt, or go all-out for impact with large, zany florals on a dark background.
The new Limited Edition Fabric Care Collection from Bold & Lenor is perfect for ensuring the colours of your florals stay looking fresh. With bottles designed by internationally renowned fashion designer Giles Deacon, there are three fragrances to choose from: Diamond & Lotus Flower, Peony & Cherry Blossom, or Amethyst & Floral Bouquet.
