Darling Buds of July/August

Florals – the perennial Spring/Summer trend – forever baffling the fiercest of the fashion following.  But this season the likes of Christopher Kane and Valentino have breathed life into the flowery trend. A delightfully mixed bunch of new season florals have taken over the highstreet; so grab yourself a pew because I’m about to sew some seeds of advice.

Make like Mary Katrantzou and team fancy fantasy floral prints in the favourite body con style. I love this bodycon dress in photographic floral print, from ASOS, which is a steal at £20.

For the ultimate femmes – go for a very vintage Valentino inspired look and get yourself a chiffon maxi. Try on net-a-porter’s £160 Badu printed silk-chiffon maxi dress.

If you’re more of a wall flower try a monochrome floral in-keeping with Alexander Wang’s catwalk collection. Why not check out New Look’s monochrome floral print dip hem maxi, £29.99.

Or if the sun’s not shining why not cover up with a jumper and maxi skirt combination like Alberta Ferreti and Sonia Rykiel. Team up this ASOS knit at £12.50 with this Lula floral maxi skirt from USC currently at £19.

For you daring floral fetishing fashionistas grab yourself a full set ensemble inspired by Moschino and Dries Van Noten. Try Topshop’s co-ord floral blazer and trousers, £105.

Or mix up your printed perennials and appliqué blooms like Sportmax and do the cardinal sin of clashing. Try River Island’s £18 high waisted cream and black floral print leggings with their £25 red sleeveless floral print shirt.

Finally – for a crisp summer style team your florals with graphic white as seen in Chloe’s runway collection. Pop on these floral print trousers, £39.99, from Zara with a white chiffon blouse.
