Sweet­est thing

Flo­rals! Spring! Talk about a fash­ion trope overly done to death; it’s be­come a safe fall-back for de­sign­ers want­ing to shake off the rem­nants of win­ter with a fresh start. Re­tail­ers know a flo­ral print sells, and de­sign­ers are only too happy to oblige; this time around a sense of English nos­tal­gia has seeped into spring de­liv­er­ies via ditzy prints and patch­work, as if sourced from some quaint English hab­er­dash­ery. While it’s easy to ro­man­ti­cise the nos­tal­gic as­pects of pretty prints and heir­loom-in­spired ac­ces­sories, the fol­low­ing pieces are still thor­oughly mod­ern choices that don’t feel too twee and when teamed with ca­sual denim sep­a­rates and a pair of white can­vas sneak­ers, are the per­fect way to mix town and coun­try into one stand­out look.
