Spring florals.

Not that I've really been looking but in my travels between massages, acupuncture, the movies and Baby Bunting, I've noticed that a lot of fashion labels are really embracing florals this season. Not the nana style of floral, or the 1980's floofy pastel dress. This season's florals are vibrant, chic and stylish while still remaining pretty and fun. Classic, structured silhouettes take the floral out of the back of the wardrobe and place it front and centre this season.

A few examples of the trend:

Ojay's lilypad border dress. The stiff sateen material and intriguing pattern is a winner this spring. Classy and stylish yet still feminine it would be perfect for the spring racing season or a casual summer wedding.

Leona Edmiston's Hazel - a Mad Men inspired shirt dress - is a great example of how you can work florals into your work wardrobe in an easy way. The print is so pretty and the range of colours means you can update the dress with a myriad of accessories.

Finally, even the queen of the retro animal print is going floral this season. This trapeze style dress from Charlie Brown is perfect for drinks after work. The drapey bow at the neck echoes the softness of the print. Love it!

I pretty much never not wear floral (gotta love a double negative). Colourblocking is just not for me.
