Fashion’s love of flowers continues! So, should grown women wear florals? Are they suitable for anything other than afternoon tea? My vote says a big YES.
OK, so we get it, everyone must start smelling of roses including the celebrities, however, what are the options?
In full bloom
Fitted, flirty and floral: your new summer super hero that will take you from cocktails to weddings. This pretty must-wear dress will rise to any occasion. Add a stunning hat for the ‘wow’ factor. So ‘forget-me-not’ – this season it’s about blooms with sex appeal.
Not sure about the dress, then a floral jumpsuit is the answer if you want to be more comfortable. Watch the size of the flowers though. If you are a grand scale you need larger flowers, the petites need smaller, neat, florals. Top tip: Oasis have just joined forces with the Victoria & Albert Museum to bring 11 of their archived botanical prints to life on clothes and accessories, so check them out.
Add a taste of the Orient to your wardrobe with the Kimono comeback – you have to have a floral one. Soft yet structured, elegant yet edgy, it flatters and hides upper arms.
Or give an everyday jacket, cardigan or dress an upgrade with the ‘obi’ belt. Tied in a knot, it cinches waists and adds definition to slouchy shapes. What’s not to love?
Who said florals look frumpy? A matching two-piece is the new-season game changer. Wear together for high impact dressing or as separates to get two outfits for the price of one. Keep the silhouette simple and you can’t go wrong.
So don’t be a wallflower, get into full bloom!
You need to know all your styling rules to look your best including the size pattern for your scale and which pattern suits your body shape best. So why not book your style consultation or even a full make-over (which includes colour analysis too)
