You know that Spring is in the air when you start to see the shops in full bloom! Floral fabrics are just the perfect way to celebrate the start of a new, brighter season, they are feminine, pretty and always add a slightly vintage flavour to your wardrobe. They are also a fashionista’s fave, with stylish stars from Kate Moss to Olivia Palermo embracing the prettiest of prints.
This season, Next is a wonderful garden of colourful florals that will add colour and beauty to even the plainest of wardrobes. From wonderful teadresses to pretty floral trousers, from tiny flowers to large blooms, Next has taken all the joys of nature and created wonderful new designs that can help you recreate celebrity styles. Here’s how to get the look.
Kate Moss made the tea dress an iconic item that every wardrobe needs. Tea dresses are great in that they can be dressed up with Mary Janes or platform heels, or dressed down with DM’S and opaque tights. The black floral tea dress gives you that Kate look, and is a perfect transitional piece. Wear now with a chunky knit, and in summer with sandals.
Floral trousers are currently a huge trend, and allow less girly girls to tap into florals. Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo and Zoe Saldana are just three of the celebrities who have shown how versatile floral trousers can be.I love how smart they look with a tailored blazer.
The midi length has proved to be surprisingly flattering and shows no sign of going away. Kirsten Dunst and Sophia Bush are just two of the stylish stars who have decided that midi lengths and red florals are a perfect mix. And I couldn’t agree more. The red print woven dress from Next ties these two trends together beautifully, creating the perfect wear anywhere look.
If you feel that all over floral prints are a bit too much for you, why don’t you try adding a floral accessory to your look? Poppy print shoes proved to be a popular item when YSL launched their wedge featuring this print, Katie Holmes was just one of the celebs to sport them, next have also utilised poppy prints on these gorgeous heels, a snip at £28!
And finally. if florals aren’t really your thing, you could always channel Lady Gaga and keep your flowers to your teacup!
