Miranda Priestly may not have been overly thrilled with the prospect of florals for spring in the film the Devil Wears Prada, but here at TJC, we love a good flower print for the season.
This spring there are some interesting styles on the high street, giving you loads of choices when it comes to florals, whether you usually rock flower power patterns or not. Of course, it can get a bit confusing when looking for the right print to suit your style.
To help you find the best trend for you and allow you to wear florals like a pro, here are some of our favourite styles for SS15:
If you want texture and a traditional style floral print, this could be the fashion for you. Eastern-inspired florals are a great way to add some chic shapes to your wardrobe, especially when worn on spring must-haves like kimonos.
The embroidered look adds a lot of detail to any outfit, making it ideal for teaming with simple colours and outfits, as it will allow the floral pattern to really stand out. This means it is a fab statement look that you can pull off with very little effort.
If you want to add even more texture to the look and a degree of movement, you can also team embroidered florals with details like fringe to create a fully Oriental look. Kimonos with fringed bottoms or arms are a great choice for both day and night, and so are a really versatile SS15 item.
You can get embroidered florals in a range of colours, from super brights to subtle shades, allowing you to fit them with your look and existing wardrobe.
The 70s trend is huge right now and is perfect for SS15 as it embodies flattering lines, a range of colours and a lot of fun. As well as flared jeans, platform shoes and wide collars, the trend is also introducing some more traditional floral prints to the high street.
70s-inspired prints can be both bright or subtle, with two different forms of traditional patterns being part of the trend. You probably think that flower patterns from this decade are all bold shades, like pinks teamed with blues, or a mixture of citrus shades.
These tend to be the more disco-style and are ideal if you like to make a statement, but fans of the more subtle can also embrace this retro look. More realistic prints that use soft and natural shades, such as deep greens and creams, are ideal for this trend and make it slightly more refined for daytime wear.
What we love about this look is that you can wear 70s florals throughout entire outfits, creating the ultimate spring ensemble. Fully printed dresses and matched separates are a huge part of the trend and are a really lovely look for the season.
Rather than traditional prints, why not go for something more interesting and a lot bolder? Abstract florals were made popular last year and this spring they are back full force.
This look incorporates so many different styles and patterns, meaning there really is something for everyone. From tattoo-style roses to bright watercolour-style floral arrangements, abstract styles are winning this season.
It doesn't matter if you're going for a look that incorporates a lot of floral print or if you're making a statement with a small but effective dose of flowers, experimenting with styles that break the mould will instantly update your wardrobe and make this spring essential completely fresh.
Try teaming your abstract prints with contrasting shades and simple outfits in order to show them off fully and ensure they are the main focus of any ensemble.
