Florals for spring. I know what you're thinking - groundbreaking, right?

Well, not exactly.  But that doesn't make them any less desireable!

Whatever high street store you’re in, there's guaranteed to be surplus varieties of floral dresses; bright tea dresses, flowing maxi’s, tailored ocassionwear. It’s the pattern we know and love, an old comfort we go back to time and time again. Which begs the question, why buy more than one?

Okay. I know what you're thinking. But really, there's no need to panic about re-wearing that same dress day-in-day-out. With a little imagination, you could wear the same floral fabric 5-days-straight, and the only thing people would notice, is how damn great you look! 

Don't believe me? Watch and learn ladies.

Here's my favourite 5 ways to wear my ONLY floral dress:

1. Biker-Chick Style

Proving that wearing a flowery dress need not be all about being girly.  

This works so well and is an old classic, giving a floral number a rocky spin. In my opinion, the girlier, sweeter and prettier the dress, the cooler it looks when combined with some black leather.

Add some fishnet tights and classic biker boots, if you dare go even edgier.

2. Get Preppy

Clean white trainers and a basic white tee casual down a floral dress but still leave you looking smart and put together.  

A perfect look for anything from a day trip to a casual work outfit. And a sneaky way to show off your tan against the white.

3. Perfect for Picnics

A little obvious, but always an easy one to pull off!

Go for a light denim jacket and some cute sandals for a great, easy summer look - this one will take you straight from a shopping trip to a night at a beer garden! Easy and quick to put together for a last minute outfit that’s always a winner.

4. Your Autumn Transition

Perhaps not an outfit for the current climate (thankfully), but this is a great way to transition to autumn/winter whilst still hanging on to that summer feeling!

Throw a jumper on top and pair with casual ankle boots for a chilled outfit that is so comfortable and practical.  Just add thick tights when the chilly nights are upon us and you’re sorted!

5. Dress it Up!

Florals can totally be dressed up when necessary (hello, another reason why we obsess from season to season?!) and when styled right, it’s a great outfit for a christening, party or maybe even a casual wedding.  

Nude heels are always a winner and when paired with a matching blazer and a bright bag for that pop of colour to bring out the dress, you have a formal floral outfit sorted!
