Blooming Spring

With the new spring season soon approaching, there's no better time to wear your florals! Flicking through the latest Harper's Bazaar last night, I came across a double page spread on floral prints. All things girly is just not me but I've promised myself to stop being a wallflower and bite the bullet by getting some floral prints into my wardrobe. So worry not my floral print haters, I have put together a few ways on how you can incorporate the print without looking like you're wearing your nan's curtains. Spring is fully in bloom and so is fashion!

Cocoon coats and pillow-sleeved jackets have taken over the catwalks from Celine to Stella McCartney. Though this trend has been around for a while, only recently has it instigated. I'm all for large, boxy silhouettes so this trend is right up my street. "Oversize was the cool new message this season: shoulders dropped, lengths were long and trousers had low crotches." Vogue fashion director Lucinda Chambers explains. "It's a look ideal for a confident tomboy who likes to keep things simple, strict and streamlined." So don't be afraid, readers. Think big!
