7 Ways We’ll Be Wearing SS16’s Modern Florals

7 Ways We’ll Be Wearing SS16’s Modern Florals

Thought florals were boring? You won’t when you discover these great new ways to showcase the latest look

This is a InStyle Advertorial.

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.

Country classic
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.

Funky feet
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.

The Giles Deacon for Bold Lenor Limited Edition Collection is available nationwide.
