Summer fashion is in full bloom. If there is one style philosophy, I can pass on at any time of a fashion cycle, it’s lean into florals this season. Certain pieces define each season; the fact is that bright florals can be worn whatever the season, and now we’re bringing a whole new sense of fun to the trend.
A word of warning to all of the minimalists out there: these floral prints are full of personality and exuberant detail, so you may want to get used to seeing them now sooner rather than later.
We also can’t guarantee that you’ll stay a minimalist after reading this (they’re that good). Be prepared to embrace your inner lady.
Soft floral patterns offer a touch of femininity to warm-weather style, you can officially bring out your girlish charm with the outfits by uping the accessories you wear.
When it’s hot outside, we gravitate towards unfussy, refreshing prints, and florals seem to have our full attention. These looks will tell you why!
THE SKINNY STRAPS
Channel the summer mood with a slim strap maxi. On the hottest days, an empire waist of a cut-out silhouette will float effortlessly and provide a cooling effect. An open neckline or a waist highlight will offer an extra feminine touch. Nothing epitomises summer living quite a sweeping maxi dress!
