FASHION Fresh brunch
Thank your nana for spring’s dainty approach to wearing those ubiquitous florals
Wearing florals for spring might sound like a tired fashion trope but it’s still a winning formula. Beautiful, fresh, floral prints signify the start of a brand new season — and that does something to the mind; a feeling of change, shifting to a more positive and radiant style as temperatures start to warm. But rather than be overwhelmed by the floral prints on offer, stay focused. Zero in on wallpaper florals, the sort your grandmother might have had plastered on her sitting room walls. Liberty, the masters of the micro floral print — despite changing trends — continues to inspire the imagination via beautiful fabrics and interiors. Dainty bouquets add a point of interest to textiles and, when projected on to a lovely skirt or fluttering dress, it’s bound to put a spring in your step. Dan Ahwa
