If you’re a fan of florals, you’re in luck.
Every year, we dread hearing the same old saying from The Devil Wears Prada’s fictional character Miranda Priestley: ‘Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.’
Despite their predictability, summer fashion barely exists without florals. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – right?
That’s not to say floral prints always stay the same. While we’ve seen understated ditsy prints countless times in years gone by, they’re oversized and graphic in 2021, bringing a whole new sense of fun to the trend.
Slow fashion brand Grey Milk’s poppy florals have been all over our feeds lately, as well as cartoon florals from the sustainable and super stylish brands Paloma Wool and Cinta The Label. Meanwhile Copenhagen-based designer Stine Goya has made us fall in love with florals all over again, offering a much-needed update on romantic prints.
For those looking to make a statement with their florals this summer, we’ve found some inspiration from a collection of our favourite influencers. Plus, we’ve scoured the shops to find the prettiest prints out there you can get your hands on right now.
