In Full Bloom

SUMMER may technically be coming to a close, but right now it would seem the weather is suggesting otherwise. With early autumnal sunshine expected, what better way to do transitional dressing than to combine summer prints into your autumn wardrobe? It’s true, “summer florals” has come to be recognised as one of fashion’s more clichéd terms. But thanks to Alessandro Michele, florals have in fact had a very fashionable overhaul, with Gucci’s botanical prints proving a big hit with the A-list these past few months: Beyoncé, Margot Robbie and Miranda Kerr have all slipped into silk ruffle dresses created by the Italian designer, while Alexa Chung and Kate Bosworth prove flowers aren’t just for frocks. If you want to refresh your florals game, take your cue from the stars who are sporting them with a grown-up flair.
