As we seem to be having a mini heat wave this week I thought I would embrace the sun and wear a floral dress, today’s dress is a Holly Willoughby tea dress and I love it, it fits my shape and size perfectly.
Floral/Print was huge this summer and the trend is carrying on through to Autumn/winter so everyone should get on board! Whatever your shape or size there are some amazing items out their!
Floral/Print trousers, do or don’t? they are so on trend and when worn correctly they can look fabulous, however striking the perfect balance is tricky, I have seen some people going all out flora/print and completely over doing it to the point where you don’t know where the bottoms stop and the tops starts, no offence! But unless you are a rock star like the beautiful Cheryl Cole id say don’t try it! Yes Cheryl looked amazing in Cavalli during her performance on the Voice but really girls we might have been born in the same country but that is where the similarities end!
There is a way to make floral work for you and the key is balance, Miranda Kerr has the right idea, wearing floral bottoms teamed with a plain top, she has picked one colour out of the pants and matched her shoes and handbag. Perfection!
For those who aren't into trousers but want to try the floral's try teaming a floral skirt with a plain blouse and same rules apply for selecting heels and handbag.
