Zero Time, Max Style: Spring Florals

f4f5e3a04289e2423b46303d0c872698You really know it’s spring/summer in Fashion World when the florals hit the shops. Unlike my pot plants, this is a trend that will never wither and die, which I, for one, think is a good thing. The great thing about florals is that you can tailor them to your taste, whether you’re a little bit punky, basically a minimalist or you just LOVE print, you really can work a bit of flower power into your wardrobe. Here’s how we’d do it…

See? Florals don’t have to be cutesy. By mashing up her prints and working a fairly boyish haircut, this girl manages to make her florals look modern. If that’s too much (and I get it, I do), then how about combining two of this year’s looks and investing in a floral bomber jacket? Or just plumping for a flower-print blazer to take you into summer?

Alternatively, there’s always a pair of floral trousers (I’m a big fan), a dress or a skirt – full if you’re going for the SJP look or a pencil teamed with a shirt or t-shirt for more of that insouciant Parisian vibe. I particularly love the clash of Breton, leopard and floral in this picture of J.Crew girl Lucy Laucht below…

If you really want to rock it, then how about a suit (this one below is from MSGM) or a jumpsuit? You’ve got to be brave, but it’s a great look.87772faa0edaf0140ea65c1b72c0ba7d
