Can florals be edgy?

Wednesday, 21 March 2012

Spring. Oh, how we adore you, you summer’s sister. For months we have hidden our awesome outfits under layers and layers of warmth. Every year, we get the same feeling; we want to stuff our winter coat in a cupboard far, far away and hope it never returns.

This endless longing for spring is perhaps why florals always make their way into the S/S collections. A lonely flower on the ground is the first sign of spring and maybe we unconsciously hope that by dressing ourselves in florals we’re speeding up the process just a little bit.

This year though, florals have been given an edgy update, taking a step away from the ultra feminine look that commonly dominate. Erdem and Sportmax are doing floral trousers (mis)matched with equally floral blouses, and all over we see a flirtation towards a more androgynous shape. The verdict? Yep, we love it!
