On & Around the Street

TREND ALERT: Spring Florals

Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Emilia Wickstead and Miu Miu

As the spring makes its tentative return to London, Sloane Street’s boutiques are abloom with blossoms and petals, as florals make a triumphantly feminine return to fashion’s agenda. One of this spring 2017’s biggest trends, this season’s florals come in endless varieties, from micro to macro, on denim or silk, with scene-stealing styles straight from the catwalk, ready to charm their way through to summer.

Now, some may say that florals for spring are as predictable as death and taxes but when a trend is this pretty, it’s no surprise that designers return time and time again to flowers for inspiration. We love Emilia Wickstead‘s romantic maxi dresses, and the all-out drama of Dolce & Gabbana‘s rose-print dress: wear with a floral headpiece for added impact.

Marnis florals this season have more than a hint of retro wallpaper charm, while Michael Kors and Miu Miu are tapping into a more ladylike theme.

Why not try a pair of flower-covered trousers from Mother of Pearl or Adam Lippes, teamed with a no-fuss knit or Tee, or throw on botanical dress for this season’s round of weddings and events? Red Valentino has a swoon-worthy selection, or try Boutique 1 for a selection of great finds by young and emerging designers.

And, if you’re planning on making a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show, there couldn’t be anything more appropriate to wear than something deliciously pretty, covered in flowers.
