Florals for spring…?

Topshop Spring 2018 floral dress

…Groundbreaking. Yes Miranda, I know. But these big blowsy blooms are so happy-making for gruelling January aren’t they?

These are from the new Topshop campaign and typically, I can’t see them on the site yet* (UPDATE! See below for delivery dates]. So I’ve improvised with some other picks. I’m not the girliest girl, so the only way I can fathom these unapologetic florals is styled how they are above with ultra dark high waist jeans and a classic Superga-style sneaker or western boot. If you’re more adventurous than me, you could also wear them with dungarees, or tucked into a midi skirt with ankle socks and chunky Prada-esque heels. Also, clashing florals are never wrong in my book…

The dresses do have a whiff of Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis 90s grunge about them, don’t they? In which case, a long sleeve thermal layer underneath would be sensible and instead of Dr Martens, I’m imagining this season’s fugly Louis Vuitton trainers and sports socks.

UPDATE: Here are the dates when you can buy the Topshop product.
