Floral Trends
By : Stylish Sandra

Summer is here and there’s nothing more summery and stylish than florals.  Florals have made a huge come-back this season and are on trend and super fashionable. There is also nothing conservative about 2017 florals - they’re bright, bold, funky and fun.  This Alexander McQueen dress will give you an idea of what you can look forward to.  It’s light, flimsy, pretty, romantic and also super edgy with the leather trimmings.

Skirts, frocks, shorts, jeans and even shoes are floral.  A pair of floral shorts with flat shoes and a simple t-shirt is divine - youthful, flirtatious and cool.  Floral jeans with a pair of high heels and a plain shirt - stylish as well as flirtatious and elegant.  Floral sandals with simple jeans are great, and a floral dress is something that everyone should own!

I love this Sofia floral ruched dress.  It’s bright and bold but also super flattering. You can dress it up with heels or wear it barefoot, depending on your mood.  And take note dear reader, that a ruched dress is very clever if you have a bit of a tummy and want to hide a few flaws.   Even though we should all love our flaws!

Have a look at this gorgeous short flared skirt by French Connection. It’s one of those skirts that is good for day or night, for corporate wear, formal wear or for a party.  It  can be matched up with a plain black or pink  t-shirt, worn with bare legs and a pair of simple black shoes for a lovely elegant look.  Or -  you can go for funky look and dress it up with black tights, a pair of doc martins, a pink t and lots of funky bracelets.

Florals have been all over the catwalks this season and all the top celebrities are sporting floral.  Selena Gomez looks stylish, young, flirtatious and super cool in this very simple blue floral frock.  And Rihanna in this floral kimono is dynamic! Look how she wears her floral with a simple black underneath but then goes a bit wild with shoes!

The thing about style is to be a little adventurous.  Just because you’re wearing a flowing floral frock doesn't mean you can’t wear heavy boots with it.  And if you’re going for floral jeans, you can wear a striped t-shirt with them.  2017 florals are fabulous and feminine and don't be scared to wear them any way you want.

Want to be daring? Wear these heavy dotted boots with a light floral frock.  You will look fantastic!
