‘The Devil Wears Prada’ character Miranda Priestly sarcastically once said: “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.”
However, do you dare the full-blown daintiness of bright, textured floral patterned clothes? The Moschino S/S 2013 show teaches us that accessorizing is key to the more subtle floral vibe. Shoes are a perfect way of adding a touch of femininity to your statement style pieces, day and night.
Here at SOLE we are loving these Gola Quota Melly plimsolls (above and below). Comfortable, fashionable, street-style cool. The bright yellow ribbon laces and Gola Wingflash delightfully clash with the floral canvas. Keep it simple and wear with jeans and a plain white tee as shown below.
Party it out
For a twist on the standard block black/colour heels on a night out, opt for something a bit more wild. These Iron Fist wedges (below) are more wild flower than English rose, featuring flowers and skull embellishment (why not?!) and really do freshen up an LBD. If you’re feeling brave on the beach this summer, pair with a black bikini, a gold tribal statement necklace and ripped denim shorts for a sexy day-turns-to-night look.
Country fêtes, folk festivals, picnics in the park
These paisley Floral Desert Boots Exclusive to SOLE (below left) encompass the ‘romantic walk through a meadow on a balmy summer’s day’ vibe (although, the local park on your way to work will do…). Wear yours with a plain summer dress, navy socks and keep make-up fresh and minimal. If you’re thinking practicalities, take a look at this bright version of the iconic Hunter boot. Enough to brighten up the dampest of British festival weather…
