For Part 2 of our EDIT No.4 , its all about florals, florals and more florals! Garance spoke on the complications of flower prints just last week, so it felt like perfect timing to dive a little deeper into this enduring trend. And it goes without saying that it wouldn’t be spring without florals, now would it?

Florals are tricky! They are uber feminine, which actually doesn’t suit everyone, especially when you’re like me, who SO badly wants to be in the floral party too. What I loved about the Spring 16 collections was the overuse of stacking flower prints on top of one another. It kind of made this girly staple click for me, and Felicity was just the cool girly girl we had in mind to show you a few ideas!

The most important thing to remember is that flowers are fun! And they work well together because of it. When mixing, three noteworthy suggestions :

1 / Tone on tone prints work together seamlessly. Pink & white poppy print + pink & red rose print = love at first shirt tied around the waist.

2 / Pay attention to scale. If the flowers are all about the same size, somehow, no mater the color scheme variances, it feels fluid and easy.

3 / When you pair miniature flower prints with bold larger ones, the color tones need to have a common thread. Like the same cerise to make the connection smart and not weird.

But really, go wild! May your mentor in florals be Kurt Cobain or Blossom, mix until you have so many wrongs together it almost makes a right. Almost….
