After a seemingly endless winter, a fresh new trend is in bloom. Fierce and flirty have replaced the delicate and dainty floral prints of the past. From carnations to peonies and everything in between, these beautiful botanicals are anything but old-fashioned. The contrast of bold colour and embellished femininity draws the eye across a plethora of silky ensembles this season, letting style blossom with a contemporary twist on the traditional trend. Refined cuts and the structured elements of the pieces bring order to the floral fantasy. Experiment with soft neutral shoes that add balance to the busy ensemble — this is the perfect opportunity to transition the look from work to play.
Taken one step further, the iconic patterns complemented by highly stylized geometric-shaped accessories create a flawless style statement. Small rings stacked on multiple digits and oversized conversation pieces are accessory staples this season. The beautifully gilded glamour, adorned with coloured gems and ornate architecture, screams sophistication. Don’t shy away from layering necklaces — try pairing shorter delicate pieces with bolder ones.
