It’s a garden party like no other this season.

Florals receive a modernist update this season with exotic blooms at the forefront.

Style Notes

* Floral capri pants are big news this season. Pair yours with a matching blazer, t-shirt and stiletto heels for easy chic.

* Try floral appliqué fabrics a la Christopher Kane for a 3-D effect; or look for laser cut accessories for a more subtle approach to the trend.

* For timeless appeal invest in a floral silk blouse – perfect with anything from jeans to a pencil skirt.

* Feeling brave? Print clashing still rules the runways. Nail the trend by mixing dissonant prints in the similar colourways.
