Floral Shorts

I’m obsessed with printed shorts – how can I dress them up to wear them out?


High heels and a leather jacket will shake things up instantly. Just choose a cropped, lightweight jacket and pair it with a vest to make it summer-friendly.

Going Out In Florals

How can I wear florals when I go out?


In a nutshell, stay away from bold colours and look for prints in neutral tones (think black, navy and grey). Then add metallic pieces for a dose of sophistication.

Not-Too-Girlie Florals

I’d love to wear a floral dress but worry I’ll look too girlie.


Choose the style of dress carefully. Avoid looser, baby doll shapes and go for something that shows off your curves with a print that’s more modern and grown up.

Not-Too OTT

Can I wear a bright floral skirt without looking OTT?


Of course, if you keep things simple: basic vests in dark shades are a summer staple. And don’t load up on accessories.

Breaking Free Of The White Tee

I don’t know what to wear with my floral jeans – I always seem to resort to a white T-shirt. Any better ideas?



Step away from that boring tee and do the print-on-print thing instead. Go sleeveless (flaunting your toned arms, which gives the look a sexier edge) and make sure the floral prints are different sizes and have some shades in common.

Work Wear

How do I wear floral prints to work?


One word: blazer. Choose one with good tailoring (so it doesn’t look sloppy) and a small, bold print. Throw it over anything from trousers to dresses – and smart shorts if your office has a more relaxed vibe.
