Embrace Florals This Spring

Florals are a timeless and versatile print which add a touch of femininity and freshness to any outfit. Whether it’s a flowy maxi dress, elevated beach wear, rose print palazzo trousers or floral accessories, incorporating florals into your wardrobe is a sure way to stay on trend this spring.  Here are my top tips on how to style them.

Start with a statement piece

If you’re new to wearing floral prints, begin with a single piece such as a floral blouse or skirt. This will allow you to experiment with the trend without feeling overwhelmed.  An item that’s not engulfed in blooms is also a great option as you can play with the print without fully committing to this trend.


Mix and match

Don’t be afraid to mix flower prints with other patterns or solid colours. Think floral print trousers with solid colour top for a chic, stylish look. And if you fancy something more daring, pair a floral blouse with a geometric-patterned skirt. The key is to ensure the scale (the size) of the prints differ and there is a common colour in both pieces that tie the two prints together.

Dress for the occasion

Consider the event or occasion you’re dressing for when choosing your floral outfit. Smaller, more subtle florals are idea for formal outfits while bold, bright and oversized florals are better suited to causal wear.

Accessorise wisely

When wearing flower prints, keep your accessories simple to let the print shine. Opt for neutral shoes and handbags to balance the boldness of the floral pattern. Or flip it around keeping your outfit simple and allow your accessories to do the talking. Floral scarves, handbags, jewellery and embellishments on shoes are all easy ways to add a touch of spring to any outfit.


Whether you want to go all out with a head-to-toe floral ensemble or prefer a subtle hint of florals there are endless ways to incorporate this must-have print into your wardrobe this season. So embrace the beauty of florals and let your style bloom!
