Ready for an instant spring awakening? Look no further than the feminine flourish florals bring.
Though Miranda Priestly famously disputed their frequent fanfare, we can’t help but find that flowers are always fitting, and in fact, merit the moniker of ‘groundbreaking’ more than ever this season.
Do they remain romantic? Yes. Pretty? Absolutely. But prepare for posies that are bigger, bolder and brighter than before – these blooms mean business.
Soft ice cream shades offer a stellar starting point. Rails’ effortless boho blouse is especially impactful with considered styling. An optic white jean will immediately draw attention to the spray of burgeoning buds.
Misa takes a different approach. The brand’s breeze-catching chiffon maxi, which can masterfully move between laid-back affairs and dressier gatherings, boasts a trio of touches (tiers, ruffles and smocking) to enhance the kaleidoscopic effect of the painterly print.
Next, high summer heat meets its match. New-to-Andrews label Rhode draws you in with lush tropical tints but seals the deal with sophisticated details like braided rope belts, flounced skirts and strong silhouettes.
Gilner Farrar’s top and skirt set puts a playful twist on after dark dressing. The pieces, worn together, create a polished column effect, but break them up and you can deliver flower power in smaller doses.
There are suits, and then there is Smythe’s multicoloured floral suit. The showstopping duo makes the ultimate style statement with freshly plucked stems adorning every inch. Dazzle everywhere from the corner office to special occasions.
Diane von Furstenberg, meanwhile, can always be counted upon to cut a directional dress and this structured poplin shirtdress doesn’t disappoint. The fresh combination of colours and hand drawn effect of the print ensures effortless elegance.
