Celebrity Floral style from Next

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!

Pearl Lowe continues to bring that Vintage feel to Peacocks.

I was recently lucky enough to have a Twitter conversation with Pearl Lowe, where I was able to tell her how much I loved her feminine, vintage inspired designs for Peacocks. I explained that I was a curvy girl who had virtually lived in one of her designs over the summer, and that I couldn’t believe just how flattering the designs were for those with fuller figures. Pearl explained that she designs dresses that she could wear herself, and so they are made to suit, and indeed enhance girls with curves!

So I am over the moon to bring you the story and looks from Pearl’s latest collection for Peacocks, which amazingly, is collection number 7. Again fusing Pearl’s two favourite decades, the 1940s and 1970s, this is another collection of beautiful, vintage inspired dresses that are designed to be flattering. Whether using the ultra comfortable stretch jersey fabric, or the choice of teadress style, these dresses just create that hourglass physique. They cinch in waistlines, have v necklines to enhance cleavage, and come in plain and printed designs. I want each and every one!

The inspiration for the new collection is those rock chick heroines of the 1970s, Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell. It fuses  two of Pearl’s cherished fashion era’s,  the 40’s and 70’s. 1940s style vintage dresses are mixed with 70’s retro prints inspired by printed head scarves worn by her rock and roll heroes. (such a fantastic inspirational start part).

Pearl says: “My Autumn Winter collection is inspired by my all time favourite singer Stevie Nicks. The collection boasts a mixture of 60’s and 70’s prints which I’ve combined with my trademark lace and silhouettes to create the perfect eclectic outfit for women of all shapes and sizes.”

Beautiful dresses, wonderfully modelled as ever by Pearl’s oh-so-stylish daughter Daisy, and with no price above £45, I think every wardrobe deserves a Pearl Lowe for Peacocks dress in it.
