This season I have fallen in love with florals, but not just any florals it’s that New Romantic kind of florals which appear as if they have faded somewhat, in the intensity of the Summer sun. Those intricate vintage prints are adorning dresses and accessories everywhere and I was determined to work them in to my wardrobe, ensuring I take a giant leap from my monochromatic Winter wardrobe. But it isn’t easy introducing such a beautiful feminine print into the wardrobe and style of a girl who likes to play it somewhat safe.

 

Choose The Print Wisely

Picking a floral print doesn’t mean you pick just any as it’s fairly easy, if done wrong, for it to look a little on the cheap side so I always look for the more ornate prints with a vintage feel that steers clear of being too “Cath Kidston-esque”. Blushed pinks and washed out nudes are currently the colours I’m looking for in floral prints after falling in love with this stunning playsuit from Zimmermann at Elise Walker.


The Perfect Fabrics

When buying florals I like to keep the fabrics light and delicate to really emphasis the prints femininity. The prints and fabrics are sometimes even reminiscent of the dresses I wore as a child, those perfect tea dresses that only my Grandma knew where to find which made me look like a life sized doll. Chiffons, silks and other delicate fabrics are not only beautiful but also perfect for the heat, not that we are getting any here in the UK at the moment, but should we be lucky enough to jet of somewhere else.


Accessorize Wisely

As always with my style I have to keep the balance of my femininity and casual style and the way that I do this is usually with a pair of carefully selected boots. For those bohemian Summer vibes my Isabel Marant ‘Dicker’ boots are always top of my list with their distressed suede and Cowboy infusion, I love how they compliment the earth tones of the playsuit whilst contrasting completely in style.


How will you be styling Florals this Summer and where is your favourite place to shop for them?

    This post has got me realizing that I should add more patterns and colors to my wardrobe as it is summer already. Unfortunately the weather today in London isn’t so promising for dresses and co-ords! Love what you’re wearing so much, Lydia. <3 x

    Beautiful co-ord set and I do love the vintage floral patterns. New Look has a beautiful maxi dress in a faded green vintage floral pattern.
