Trend of the week

HEY, PETAL! We’ve got a bou­quet of new sea­son flo­rals just for you.

Irish Examiner - Weekend - - Content -


Blos­soms, dar­ling buds and large-scale blooms ac­quire a win­try edge as flo­rals find their dark side. From hy­per­real craft­work to psy­che­delic pop­pies and retro wall­pa­per, reimag­ined ref­er­ences (no ditsy daisies here) run amok with a mys­te­ri­ous edge that chal­lenges our per­cep­tion of the hum­ble print.


OP­PO­SITES AT­TRACT: Make like Valentino and pair a flo­ral Vic­to­rian midi dress (think ruffle neck and sleeves) with chunky laced biker boots. Wear with a slub knit sweater or flo­ral ap­plique faux fur for ex­tra style snaps.

PRINT PLAY: Al­low flo­rals to bloom head-to-toe by keep­ing to a sim­i­lar print in dif­fer­ent colours or dif­fer­ent prints in a sim­i­lar colour. You see? Easy.

NO SHRINK­ING VI­O­LETS: Add sass to a flo­ral shoe by adding fish­net tights or an­kle socks.

WEATHER IT: Tran­si­tion a fluted hem flo­ral dress into colder months by lay­er­ing over straight leg vin­tage jeans. Pair with al­mond toe courts and a trench­coat. Done and done.
