Like the blooms that inspire them, floral prints come budding into fashion each year, shooting up lush varietals like bold roses, tropical hibiscuses and tiny daisies. Yep, however witheringly Miranda Priestly described these popular prints (“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking”) they refuse to wither, reliably peeping through the frost with the first rays of sunshine.
That’s probably because there’s a floral print out there to suit everyone. If florals suffer from a misconception, it’s that they’re fussy, but just as these hardy blooms flourish each year, they’re versatile enough to adapt to all kinds of styles and occasions.
Maybe you want night-time blossoms on the navy base of a dark jumpsuit, for summer sundowners? Or rose motifs scattered over a nude maxi, to see you through wedding season? Perhaps a playful mini in ditzy petal print is your pick of the bunch? Whatever the answer, read on for a fresh floral mix of styles that combine comfort and style, hand-picked today.
1. For That Special Occasion
Bright summer blooms on a nude base is a gorgeous choice for wedding season and fancy events, and will work with accessories in all kinds of shades, from brights to neutrals. A tie-waist creates an hourglass shape, while a leg-flashing split elongates the body. We love this print paired with a rattan bag and espadrilles.
2. Daytime Stroll
Brb, we’re off to find the ice cream fan in the Zeina Wrap Mini. A fun and breezy dress with a flattering wrap fit and ¾ length sleeves, this shorter length is made for summer. Wear with bright white trainers or strappy sandals for park picnics, BBQs and days out.
3. After Dark
Flowers bloom at night too. As the sun goes down, slip into the Farah Dress, combining a strappy cami with a figure-skimming maxi skirt. A cheeky thigh-high split and V-neck take this 2-in-1 wonder into glam territory. Add ankle boots or spiky heels and a generous slick of red lipstick for cocktails and date night.
4. Staycation Essential
With sweet cap sleeves and blush pink florals on navy, the Gabby Playsuit is a versatile option for sunny lunches and day trips. A tie detail nips in the waist, while loose floaty shorts keep you cool in the heat. Add your go-to trainers or sandals for comfy-cool styling with a floral twist.
5. The All-Rounder
Bold and bright, with major main stage energy, the Jagger Maxi marries two of fashion’s power prints, leopard and hot floral. Long sleeves make this standout style a great choice for spring day events and summer sundowners. The suit-all wrap fit pairs beautifully with flats or heels for garden parties and dinner dates.
