TOUGHEN BLOOMS WITH TAILORING
PERHAPS the issue with the floral midi isn’t so much the floral element, but the frock’s shapeless, floaty silhouette.
Enter the floral suit. As seen on the Dries Van Noten runway, where masculine tailoring, padded shoulders and sharp angles toughened up feminine florals.
On the High Street, you can find gorgeous floral suits at Ted Baker, Karen Millen, River Island, Sezane and Yolke. The good news is, you can’t go wrong on colour or type of bloom. Just keep the trouser straight or narrow — a wide-leg floral print with matching blazer is too much.
