Style by Claire Lopez

Flower Power


If you’re not an animal person or are just a bit fed up with its seemingly never-ending domination of print trends, then fear not because there is another option out there in the form of florals. And this is a print that scores high on the versatility stakes. Read on for my ‘best of’ and how to style them:

Black Ditsy Floral Pleated Midi Skirt £22.99 New Look

Now this is a super duper hard-working skirt (which I have) that you can wear with black/white/pink/lilac/yellow/blue….Sweaters for now, tees/cami’s for later and lots of different shoe options to boot.

Black Ditsy Floral Midi Skirt £15.99 New Look

If you don’t like the pleated style, then this is a much more streamlined option which also comes in Tall and Petite. Swap the white tee for a sweater and layer up with a coat or leather jacket.

Verity Ditsy Floral Midi Skirt £42 Warehouse

Now this may be jumping the gun slightly as it does feel a lot more springy than the other options but pair this with a snuggly and fluffy white sweater and tan/white boots and you can definitely do this now.

Elise Button Skirt £79 Hush

Ditsy not your thing? Then go for this eminently swishy skirt which is gorgeous with light pinks, corals or grey if you want to stick to neutrals. This print does also come in dress and top form if you’re not sold on skirts.

Mini Blossom Gathered Skirt £120 Jigsaw

This is a gorgeous print that you can pair with lots of different coloured and styled top halves to work year round. And with gathering just over the middle, it is a more streamlined option than a fully pleated style.

Ditsy Floral Midi Dress £42 Warehouse

Verity Floral Midi Dress £52 Warehouse

These two navy options are extremely wearable – smart enough for work but casual enough that trainers and a chunky sweater would also be perfect.

Floral Print Dress £39.99 Zara

Long boots for now and sandals for the summer: this will work year round. There is also definitely a trend for yellow based floral prints on a black ground.

Floral Print Dress £39.99 Zara

They really aren’t very imaginative with their product names but that doesn’t detract from the fact that this is a stunning dress that you can pair with a sweater and boots for now, with heeled sandals for a party or the summer or trainers for everyday. I’m a sucker for a swishy skirt.

Floral Long Sleeve Midi Dress £79 &Other Stories

This is one of the things that &Other Stories is very good at so it is hard to pick only a couple of options. But this style is up there as one of my favourites. It also comes in a couple of other print options.

Sheer Printed Midi Dress £79 &Other Stories

This is the other style I very much like and it too, comes in other prints. Love the styling with the creamy boots.

Donna Shirt Dress £79 Hush

This will bring a ray of sunshine to a dark winter’s day. Pop some Uniqlo Heattech thermals underneath, tights and boots and you are set for now. But swap for bare legs and trainers come the spring.

Ada Midi Dress £130 Boden

This comes in both navy and green based prints and also regular and petite lengths.

Sara Jacquard Tea Dress £109 Finery

Work the colour clash trend in this Finery dress. It also comes in a less loud colour combo with a black and white ditsy on the top half.

Emmeline Jumper £139 Hush

Now this brings a smile to my face – I love the pop of colour that allows this sweater to firmly straddle several seasons. Wear now over coated leggings, with a black midi or mini skirt and gradually bare more flesh from ankle upwards!

Sienna Floral Top £29 Warehouse

This is a striking print which will bring the perfect amount of punch and colour to a pair of black trousers for the office.

Floral Kimono £46 Oasis

This could be just what you need for a night out. It would equally work as a jacket for the office or as a lovely summery option with shorts, jeans or trousers.

I’m feeling decidedly more spring-like. Are you?
