Prints have decided to take a stand against the ditsy and floaty image of old. They’ve suddenly got a lot darker and sexier. Check out the ideas below on how to rock your florals this season.
The Dark Side
Get in the mood with a graphic floral dress with touches of black. Follow the trend adopted by the likes of Marni, Dolce and Gabbana and Valentino who, like AURZA, are opting for the darkly demure and sexy side of the print world. Pair with all back accessories to feel deliciously dark and twisted.
This look is indeed floral but much less hippie than in its previous life. As Net-A-Porter’s “The Edit” says this look is “not to be accessorized with layers of chain necklaces and goat’s gillets”. Instead throw on a great leather bomber and team with a no messing high studded boot. Gaaaaatish!
Toughen up your florals with a tailored jacket or a well loved T shirt. Adding masculinity and structure to the floaty floral print will create a much edgier boyish look this season. Keep accessories to a minimum.
Enjoy your inner vixen!
