Trend of the week: Flower power


Spring’s fashion bouquet is unlike no other. From frilled floral suiting at Marques’ Almeida to blossom-clad crowns at Dolce & Gabbana and Chloé’s cacophonous floor-grazing frocks, the feel is fresh, fun and flagrant.

No darling buds here.


Not a floral kind of gal? Opt for abstract petal or puncy palm prints for a graphic take on the trend.

Pair florals with contrasting patterns like stripes or check. Add denim or army khaki for a street style edge.

Channel this season's Havana vibe with an off-the-shoulder floral to por fishtail pencil skirt.

Amp up a classic LBC with a statement foloral earring, embroidered bag or tropical print shoe.
