8 Dark Floral Prints That Avoid The Granny Furniture Trap

Femininity gets fierce: in the current issue, fash ed Linda Conway swaps the standard pretty printed floral for something a little darker. And here are even more to shop right now too. 

“Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” Forget the cold snap that is fictional magazine editor Miranda Priestly, florals are genuinely lovely. Especially in fitted form and when they’re not adorning every piece of furniture in your granny’s house. Look at Erdem’s S/S’16 offering: wildflowers all over the shop. Phillip Lim sent a parade of patterned trousers down the runway and the high street is following suit and season – and we’re only delighted to indulge.
