We’ll always have flower power
FLORAL will always be a classic pattern in the world of fashion. It’s one of those prints that
will not tire regardless of year or season or weather. Here is a guide to help you style florals for the autumn. ◗ PICK YOUR PRINT: Offerings from the latest Cruise 2018 collections at Dior and Chanel have
taught us to experiment in different types of floral designs. Anywhere from big and bold to small and
delicate, each kind will carry personality and character. After simple yet sophisticated? Try looking for a print that features miniature flowers. If you’re one for statement patterns, a print featuring
larger flowers can be playful in bold colours and textures.
◗ USE A CONTINUOUS COLOUR PALETTE: To create a cohesive look, choose different floral patterns in co-ordinating colours. This will help put together several outfits using different designs. It is on trend to layer florals. Just keep the colours in the same
family – try navy or oxblood for autumn. ◗ ACCESSORISE: It’s key to have several
flower-patterned accessories in your wardrobe, as they act as easy statements that can be thrown at the plainest of outfits to instantly brighten and add dimension. If you’re not one to fully commit with a
bold printed dress, then introduce florals with a bag, pair of earrings or hat.
◗ USE MENSWEAR TAILORING: Styling floral clothing with menswear tailoring in mind is a stylish way to balance out the look. Think blazers, button-up shirts and fitted trousers.
