Feeling Floral ? We should all be feeling floral. Spring has officially sprung, our days are longer and this week the skies are brighter. Now is the perfect time to take stock of your wardrobe, de-clutter and pick up some fresh pieces for the months ahead. If you haven’t tried florals before then now is the time and in this newsletter I hope to give you some inspiration on how to style them for Spring.
Keep It Simple
Floral prints can work for the office when paired with chic, tailored pieces. A pencil skirt with a subtle floral design will ensure you don’t look too ‘girly’ in a working environment. Wear with a simple top and pick out one of the colours from the print with your accessories to pull your look together.
Add An Accent
If you don’t want to go all-out with flowery prints then consider an accent piece instead. A floral pair of shoes, a bag or even a belt will all add a fresh touch to an existing outfit to bring you right up-to-date for the season ahead.
Mix It Up
They may seem an unlikely pairing, but florals work beautifully with stripes!
To ensure your look feels cohesive when mixing patterns, make sure you keep the colour ways harmonious – tie it all together by choosing one main colour for your outfit with a few accents colours to complement it.
