Each of these styles has its own unique look and feel, so it's important to find the one that speaks to you!
This style is characterised by its abstract shapes and colours. The flowers are often geometric in shape and fairly bold, but they can also be stylised versions of real flowers. Abstract florals can be worn as casual or formal dresses depending on the fabrication used and how they're styled.
There is no doubt that a bold floral statement piece is a great way to liven up any outfit. These stand-out prints can be worn all year round, thanks to their colourful patterns and graphic designs. With no set season to be worn, these mood-boosting prints are available in a rainbow of colours, including bright blues, oranges, pinks and yellows. So next time you're feeling down, reach for a bold floral print to brighten up your day.
For something truly romantic, you can't go wrong with a soft pastel floral design. These dreamy creations are typically made using gentle pinks, lilacs, greens, and yellows, and often feature delicate flowers such as peonies, roses, and wildflowers.
"Glasual" is a new trend that is taking over winter fashion. It is a mix between glam and casual, and can be easily dressed up or down. This makes it perfect for both day and night time wear.
Stylish and flattering, a floral print with a darker base is perfect for transitioning your daytime look into evening wear. The darkness of the base naturally slimming, while the print itself pops and brings attention to all the right places.
A placement print is a fabric with a large motif or design that is then strategically placed on a garment for maximum impact. Placement prints can have a wide range of colors and designs, making them perfect for adding a unique touch to any outfit. Dependant on placement this type of printing can create and or enhance your shape.
