Big florals were all over the runway a few months and now as Spring is getting sprung, we’re going to start seeing it in shops as well. As many of us know, Bad Things can happen when we attempt to wear florals. Bad embiggening things. So how do you dress the trend without looking like my Great Aunt Nobby’s favorite couch?
Avoid the all-over print. With big prints, as with vermouth and potentially damning eye-witnesses, less is alway more. You’ve got to give the eye some place to rest.
Case in point:
The Alva dress from B&Lu. Cute cut, but quite noisy and 100% hugeifying.
Much better is the Floral Dot Dress from Lane Bryant. You still get a bit of a bold pattern statement but it leaves the waist and hips clean. It’s a little art nouveau too, which –in my not remotely humble opinion– is always good. Remember to use the link on our side bar and get a big discount!
