Blooming marvellous

Anyone else feel like we’re stepping back in time? Much of the country is being blasted with freezing cold temperatures and even the odd snow storm (so much for spring), but fear not—we know just the thing to perk up your spirits. Why not see what floral styles you can uncover?

Florals are set to be a huge trend again for SS13, and given that the merest sight of a posy has the power to instantly make you feel brighter there’s never been a better time to start rummaging. This look is all about being delicate with soft, light materials and delicate colours being the order of the day—it’s a very pretty, girly look and one that’s perfect for this time of year, and there are plenty of ways you can channel the trend too.

Floral print dresses would be ideal (you could keep it carefully concealed beneath your duffle so you don’t freeze), or if you’re not brave enough for that just yet you could always keep it simple with a floral scarf or perhaps a printed top paired with some cotton trousers. Or, if you’re not a fan of full-on prints, going for pastel colours would be a great alternative (a pastel bag or pair of shoes are both great options) and make sure to be on the lookout for a simple white blazer to bring the whole look together, and you can even dress it up for the weekend with skinnies and some pastel heels.

Embracing the floral trend is a chance to let your flirty, feminine side come out to the foreground, being the ultimate springtime look and a great way to welcome in the new season. With so many different options to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice, so don’t wait for the bulbs to start peeking through—go floral this season and you’ll be chasing away all that snow to be blooming marvellous in no time.
