Why fashionable florals aren’t just for summer

Just like bomber jackets aren’t only for spring, florals shouldn’t be reserved solely for the summer months either.

Here’s how to wear this season’s prettiest botanicals, with the best pieces to snap up in store now.

That’s especially true this autumn, since all manner of floral prints were seen hitting the runway at the Autumn/Winter 2016 Fashion Week shows, proving that there’s a whole host of ways to make blooms work beyond August.

Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Victoria Beckham, Christopher Kane and Erdem are just some of the big name designers throwing their weight behind the trend with darker backgrounds, jewel tones and earthy shades leading the way for botanical prints with a positively autumnal feel.

Luckily, the folks at George are ahead of the game, too. So here’s how to wear this season’s prettiest botanicals – plus the best pieces to snap up in store now.

The Bomber Jacket

The perfect way to see you from one season to the next, floral print bomber jackets are big news. Look for colours you can easily team with the rest of your wardrobe, to make yours a worthy investment  (a dark background with lighter blooms will see you through all seasons). Try the George Floral Print Bomber.

Printed Trousers

With even Kate Middleton embracing the printed trousers trend, it’s high time you considered a floral pair. Look for flattering cuts and team with a simple white t-shirt or plain blouse to take you from the office to the bar. Try the George Floral Printed Trousers.

Boho Style

Boho vibes are still going strong with even Google predicting that the trend will run right through the autumn months. Look for floral prints in earthy shades, with flowing shapes and tassel details. Try the George Tassel Trim Floral Print Dress.

Navy Backgrounds

If black isn’t your shade, look for botanical prints with an on trend navy blue base. The darker, autumnal effect will still be the same. Try the George Floral Print Swing Dress

The Oversized Blouse

A wardrobe staple, oversized blouses make smart-casual dressing super simple. Opt for a floral number like the George Floral Print Longline Blouse, which you can dress down with jeans or style up with opaque tights, heels or boots.

Work-Smart Shirts

Autumnal florals are a great way to liven up your winter work wardrobe. Look for dark based prints in black, navy, grey or khaki and layer under a smart knit or blazer, with jeans or a skirt. Try the George Floral Print Blouse.
