Microtrend: Masculine florals
So I’m not going to bitch about the annoying predictability of ‘florals are new for spring!’ (like, when are they not?), instead I’ve picked up on an agreeable micro-trend – masculine florals. This gives florals a whole new slant. I just could not wear a traditional floaty floral tea dress, however much I like stroking them in vintage shops or picture them styled with brothel creepers and a scuffed-up studded denim jacket. But the pastoral print imagined on a boyish blazer, trouser suit, Dr Martens or skinny jeans? Now that’s a different story. (On a side note it’s good to see Dr Martens getting it right after those nasty high-heeled horrors they tried to trick us into last year.)

I love flowery Docs – I’ve been longing for a pair since I was about 14…maybe this summer then!

That model looks amazing in her floral trews. Is that ASOS?

Love that suit!
And I saw a handsome chap wearing Liberty Dunks in Soho last spring. I never have shoes as art pieces, but I’d love to have a pair of these behind glass–simply too pretty to wear (and not my style to boot!).

This sounds like a fun trend! However, I will fall for florals anywhere, any how…

I love love love my high heeled docs but I also love the flowery ones, if I got them I would have 3 pairs of Dr Martens in my collection. Extreme maybe?! I got the liberty print Nike’s in NYC last year and they continue to make me smile:) Great post x

I’ve never been that keen on florals but recently other fashion bloggers – including KoS – have been making me more open to the idea. Selina at Flying Saucer got a floral jumpsuit recently and it looks really good with some DM boots, something I would NEVER have considered doing.
Those floral Gucci’s are pretty tempting, though I’m always weary of white shoes; they never stay white for long in London!
