Designers’ Latest Romance With Florals

The SS catwalks served up an eye-popping bouquet of florals. From that scene-stealing summer party dress, to the Formica prints that will energise your new season office wear – 2017’s fashion optimism begins with bold blooms (and they are anything but prim).

In The Devils Wears Prada, fictional editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly drolly states, “Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.” And while there may be a lot of truth to her statement – designers ranging from Gucci to Givenchy and Erdem are making the print feel cool again for SS’17.

The flowers of the moment are set on a black canvas rather than white, but as Spring approaches, I’m personally switching to pastels, whites, and much brighter colors. Whether printed on a statement clutch or on a pair of pretty trousers, botanical prints are quite literally sprouting up everywhere. It’s a sign of Spring – it’s fun, flirty, and helps you achieve a girlie look fit for a warm day. Everyone from tiny toddlers to grandparents wears floral print during the spring, but to me, it never feels overdone. I’m ready to wear more brighter colors, whites and pastels,

Curious how to wear them yourself? Start by choosing your style: whether you prefer a ditzy, small print or larger, abstract options, the secret is in the contrasts. For example, a vintage floral dress paired with the kind of punk platform boots that are all over the runway right now feels much more modern than a pretty pair of heels. Similarly, adding a bag or pair of shoes covered in the print to a monochromatic outfit breaks up to monotony of it all.

My outfit is from Runaway the label. Heels from Saint Laurent. xoxo, Charlotte
