Full-on pattern clashes or subtle floral embellishments, we look at how to wear flower prints this spring/summer 

Top tips for wearing florals:

  • Pick a fitted dress for a super-feminine look that is perfect for a special occasion but equally you can dress it down with a casual shoe for a lunch date or summer barbecue
  • To keep the look ultra-modern, keep your hair natural and unfussy
  • Try super-lightweight and floaty styles for effortless chic
  • Be bold and embrace the pattern clash with floral on floral
  • If you’re not confident going all over floral, tone it down with subtle flower embellished accessories
  • For fuller figures, avoid larger floral prints and go for delicate and dainty embroidery
  • Look out for long or three-quarter length sleeves – perfect for a spring/summer transition piece and flattering too
