Lift your spirits in flattering floralsMay 2019 Style Advice
Floral prints are a perennial favourite for sunny days. Whether you prefer a beautiful botanical print or a subtle touch of delicate daisies, florals have a joyful feel-good factor that is hard to resist.
Did you know that floral prints are figure-flattering? The colourful patterns draw the eye, distracting attention from any lumps and bumps! This is especially true of bold, all-over prints, such as the elegantly trailing buds and blooms of our Every Occasion Dress. It’s a ladylike style with a slightly nostalgic feel – ideal for garden parties, family celebrations or visiting a country house.
For a similar figure-flattering effect with a more painterly print, you could opt for a pure silk dress. The floral design is quite abstract, but just as pretty and feminine – and the exquisite, pure silk makes it utterly delicious to wear. If you have a smart occasion on your summer calendar, silk is always the perfect choice.
For something a little different, how about a print that focuses on lush foliage? Our Two-in-one Luxury Dress succeeds in having all the colourful, figure-flattering loveliness of a floral print, with not a bloom in sight! The stunning all-over print, in glorious shades of azure blue, deep navy, cobalt and cornflower is fabulous for holidays or warm weather. It comes complete with a matching soft bolero to protect your shoulders from the sun, or keep you warm as evening falls.Shop dresses
