To celebrate #LFBLOOMS and the beginning of Earth Month, we sat down with the stylists at Coggles to talk floral prints. We have gone flower power crazy for Spring, and cannot get enough of floral inspired clothing, accessories and beauty. Super stylist Angharad Jones has put together some top floral-inspired pieces to help keep your wardrobes on trend, and we quite simply cannot get enough.
Floral Inspired Trends for Spring
Florals aren’t exactly a new, innovative or experimental trend. Revisited every spring/summer, it’s a look that’s as synonymous with the season as pastels, bright colours or the ubiquitous boho – but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. There’s a reason it’s a trend that’s reinvented every year; it’s classic, unabashedly feminine and there’s a floral print out there to suit almost every style. For Spring/Summer ’16, the floral was retro-inspired at Orla Kiely, delicate at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, and grungy at Markus Lupfer – showing that this is a print is nothing if not versatile.
At Coggles, the variety of florals our buyers have bought into encapsulates this so whether you want a floral that’s contemporary, bold, or harks backs to a 1970s Palm Springs, take a look at our favourite ways to wear florals below.
Around the World Florals
Danish brand Ganni has been inspired by Japanese floral prints this season, and their gorgeous navy kimono is one of our favourites. With a loose fit it oozes effortless style – wear it over the navy Samsoe & Samsoe Nesle dress and pair with the Prism Naxos leather sandals for an easy, everyday look come the warmer weather.
Vintage Inspired Florals
French fashion house Carven is back doing what it does best for SS16: vivid designs inspired by the brand’s 1960s heyday. Our favourite from the collection has got to be the floral denim jacket and mini skirt co-ord. Complete with bold white edging, this outfit is perfect for trying out this season’s vintage-inspired pieces. Bring the look into the 21st century by adding a pair of A.P.C. leather Steffi trainers.
Floral Without the Fuss
For a less overtly-feminine take on the floral trend, look to plant-based prints like the aloe print shirt dress from Mara Hoffman. With a midi length and oversized silhouette, the dress is perfect for those who want a piece that will be easy, elegant and versatile. We’ll be wearing it with sliders come summer for the ultimate in holiday chic, but for now we’ll be wearing it with See by Chloe suede platform sandals and meli melo Halo tote bag for desk-to-dinner style.
