Although oversized flowery prints may have once been restricted to grandma’s curtains, they are now en vogue and can be spotted on the runways. For autumn, matronly florals have officially been transformed into super chic and trendy. If you’re wondering how to sport this trend, try drawing your sartorial cues from the catwalks. Whether your personal style is more Emilia Wickstead or Mulberry, here’s a closer look at the reigning fad of old school florals.
We are drawn to this take on the girlish fall frock, which features puffed sleeves and a beautiful pastel colour palette. With the colourful blossoms and flared skirt, this dress certainly makes a splash. Meanwhile, the combination of a layered white turtleneck and flat black sandals complete the ensemble.
At Delpozo, the focus was on contrasting textures and fabrics. Silky brown trousers adorned with multicoloured blossoms were paired with a vividly coloured knit sweater. For a finishing touch, a vivid knit pattern and shimmering embellishment brightened up the overall look.
Mulberry turned up the glamour factor with a slightly shimmery V-neck dress, which was detailed with flowing long sleeves. The tiered hem and understated rose print helped to create visual interest, with strappy footwear and a yellow leather round purse to wrap up the outfit.
