Get Your Botanical Boost
Getting back to nature has never looked more chic
If a break abroad isn’t within budget this year, we’re about to make your day. Inspired by the likes of Max Mara and Dolce & Gabanna, tropical prints complete with birds of paradise, banana leaves and palm trees are taking over the high street. Indeed, they’ll make you look and feel as though you’ve just returned from an exotic escape – minus the overdraft panic.
And for the lucky so-and-sos who are jetting off this year, you’ll fit right in beach/poolside. Just ask Blake Lively – follow her lead in Jaded’s dress and add metallic accessories to amp up the glam after dark, or choose a pyjama jacket like F&F’S and team with white jacquard shorts or jeans during the day. Not keen on the clobber? Ease yourself in with some shady accessories (don’t even get us started on those Zara heels).
