Perfectly, wonderfully floral
Florals are usually a big fashion story for Spring, with each year showcasing a different floral print. Last summer, for example, exotic prints like palm and blooms were all over the catwalks. According to leading fashionista Lesley Ebbetts, one of Kaleidoscope’s top style adviser, Spring 2010 has its own floral treats for us.
Lesley says: “This year, floral prints are used really softly and artistically. The designs on Kaleidoscope’s cotton, chiffon and even jersey clothes look as thought an impressionist painter has daubed a contemporary floral design.”
The result, as Lesley enthuses, is just gorgeous. To get the impressionist look for yourself, try this Chiffon Pleat Dress. With feminine pleats at the waistband, this features a swishy hemline along with that gorgeous floral print.
This maxi Print Dress is a fashionable floral choice for the season, featuring a tie at the front and crossover prints at the back. This is a good day to night item: pair with a jacket or cardigan for work and metallic sandals once you leave the office.
Lesley is really enthusiastic about the feminine quality of floral prints, especially for dressing through the warmer months. As she explains: “Nothing is more flattering or feminine than romantic flowers and floras. They will take you softly and stylishly through Spring and Summer.”
