"Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking!" is a famous quote from The Devil Wears Prada. And it appears this is correct as once more floral print is back this season. Embrace your inner feminine side and choose between pretty soft pastels or vibrant hues that scream 'look at me!' Due to the influx and success of the new patent accessories range, Ted Baker are currently back on form. Along side this range, Ted Baker have released a mass of floral print clothing just in time for Summer! Get with the trend and go totally out there with an all over print such as the Bloom Print Jean or jacket. This look is a quirky way to wear this print which will make you stand out in the crowd. You can also carry this look off on a girls holiday, choosing to opt for one of our Ted Baker bikinis available as well as a bathing suit for those who wish to cover up a little more. Why not pack the floral maxi dress as well which is floaty and light for those hot nights. If you don't want your clothing to be drowned in the print, you could just inject a dose of floral pattern into your outfit such as by a simple phone case or a pair of flat shoes. The flat shoes would look especially good with a dark, plain outfit such as black skinny jeans and a black top; adding a pop of colour to a simple, basic outfit.

A Sprinkle of Poppy Seed

Following on from the discussion of adding a discreet amount of the pattern to an outfit, here are three hand selected items that enable you to bring floral into your day in a small way. This Ted Baker dress is a quirky take on 'the little black dress' making it more fun and playful when dressing up for that special occasion. For a more festival feel this Summer, opt for the red Barbour jacket that has a small trim of red poppy print on the sleeve and lining. Team this look with a pair of black Hunters and wallah! floral festival chic! Don't forget to pack all your belongings inside the mi pac backpack for an added dose of print.

In Full Bloom

Floral doesn't have to just be a print; if you want a more discreet way of adding flowers into your wardrobe, check out these three dresses that have flowers embellished into the fabric for a subtle summery feel. Whether it be a nude Naomi Tsukishima dress or an electric blue or red hue, an embellished floral piece of clothing gives an added 3D effect rather than the standard print. This was used by Oscar De La Renta in his S/S show yet he went one step further and created life size appliquéd flowers attached to the garments. So why do floral patterns keep coming back year in and year out? Perhaps its the romance of Summer that women embrace, when fields are out in full bloom full of pretty colours and tones and one that can be worn by all ages. A big difference to a print such as a neon Aztec design or a leopard print which makes a comeback every once in a while; you won't see the elder lady wearing too much animal print with the fear of looking like Bet Lynch! However floral can be embraced by practically anyone which is probably why its loved year after year by women.
