Suddenly it’s spring. Actually no. Wait. Isn’t this summer? Whatever, the sun is out, the sky is blue (don’t worry, I won’t go on) and it’s time to break out a floral dress. I keep reminding myself that it is only April but no matter, everything is blooming early, including fashion.
You can spend a fortune on one of this season’s floral dresses by designers such as D&G, Max Mara or Dries van Noten but if you just look a bit harder into what’s being offered on the high street you can make like a bouquet for far, far less. Half of the dresses here are designer and half are not. One of the joys of fashion today is being able to mix designer with high street and no one can tell the difference, so wear your Louboutins with Wallis’s pink floral shift (top left) and you’ll be pretty as a picture.
One of the other strong(ish) trends at the moment of course is fruit prints. There I’m not so sure. I think I’d get bored of being covered in bananas and oranges fairly fast. What do you think?
