Blah blah another Spring post blah blah… :P I think it’s safe to say that the blogging world has caught a bit of Spring fever and what better way to jump on that bandwagon than to gather a little bit of inspiration from the natural world and add some floral prints to your wardrobe.
The ‘Cath Kidston’ Floral
I’ve lovingly nicknamed this one but I think you know the type of floral print on about. I’m talking abou the types of florals you’ll see in the store splashed across every Cath Kidston store. It’s super prim and very pretty, using pink rose buds on pale pastel backdrops. This print is a perfect accompaniment to quaint English tea rooms and Spring strolls in the park.
The 70s Floral
There’s no escaping the big 70s revival trend that’s come through on the highstreet. No longer exiled to the depths of fashion Siberia, 70s florals are loud, over the top and oh so on trend right now. Think earthy tones in oranges, mustard yellows and browns with dashes of white for detail. The flowers themselves range from carnations to sunflowers to daisies, and can either come in small ditsy formations or larger than life printwork.
The Graphic Floral
If you’re adverse to tradition or want to try something a bit different, go digital and bring florals into the 21st century. Instead of your standard illustrated prints think photographic images and pixelated petals, spattered amongst bold geometric designs.
The Watercolour Floral
These are the kinds of florals that will see you through the Spring transition and right into Summer festival season. These pieces are more subtle and often printed on sheer fabrics with lily, bluebells, and petal blossoms almost fading into the backdrop.
So, which floral trend will you be taking on this Spring?
