Whether it is chrysanthemums, daisies or digital roses, floral and all forms of fauna seem to be having a fashion revival this season. Perhaps floral will always have a place in fashion, it has certainly been around since the invention of the loom, but we have to ask ourselves why certain trends get revived across the board? Perhaps it is the optimism spring and growth denotes. Perhaps it is the visual drama of it all.
So how does one wear floral? We loved Adele’s take on the trend in her music video. But what was it EXACTLY that we liked? Was it the edgy slightly disheveled hair ? Was it the simplicity of both her make up and accessories?
Perhaps it was something as simple as the clean-cut floral silhouette against the stark background; either which way we are more than over the moon to see the revival of one of our favorite trends.
TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR FLORALS
Weekend Special :
Stripe top plus Floral 50’s swing skirt / floral pants for a chic all day, all events, all round great ensembles. With Print – on – Print being as big as it is this season, this combination is one of the most classical ways to introduce print on print play into your wardrobe.
Scale is Key:
Fuller figure woman look just as amazing in this trend as their smaller counterparts. Just remember to consider the scale of the floral you use. Florals can create an optical illusion and can be equally unflattering. Rule of thumb – the bigger the body surface is, a larger scale floral needs to be taken into consideration.
