Flower Power: Lighten up for Spring

Whether printed on a satchel or embroidered onto a kimono, spring florals never go out of fashion. And with flower season in full effect, there’s no time like the present to embrace the trend. Lighten up this spring with our floral style guide.

Abandon monochrome this spring and go girly with a soft blue and white ensemble such as the example pictured above. In this look feminine florals are juxtaposed with white chunky sandals giving the outfit a smidge of grunge attitude. This blue smock dress with cut-out shoulders is casual yet chic, ideal for achieving effortless cool in the office or out and about.

Pastels and florals are a match made in heaven; refresh your wardrobe with parma violet tops, fondant fancied sandals and peppermint accessories. The key to nailing the pastel floral trend is colour co-ordination: choose 2 pastel shades such as lilac and mint and pair them with a neutral coloured accessory to balance things out.

In the featured look, sugary shades of lilac and white blend together whilst the Nica Messenger Bag in Light Vintage adds an accent of springtime playfulness.

Just as vampires prefer to stay out of the sunlight, some fashionistas simply don’t like colour. If you prefer the all-black-everything approach to style then worry not, you too can channel springtime cool. Swapping a pair of heavy boots for leather heeled sandals will keep things simple while acknowledging the change of seasons.

Why not indulge the floral trend with an embroidered kimono? Kimonos are easy to style and go with everything; throw yours on over an LBD or team with a crop top and shorts for a night-time look. And if you’re feeling brave you could even add a pop of colour in the form of a bright accessory.

The Nica Amy satchel in Lemon is a head-turning handbag which will liven up even the darkest attire and comes equipped with a handy travel-card pocket for fuss-free commuting.
