We love flowers, especially being given them! But when a bouquet isn’t forthcoming, we’ll settle with wearing beautiful blooms instead. As the Autumn collections drop in earnest, florals are taking on a moodier look. The featured designs all have a certain intensity about them. The sooty, painterly look is great, but we particularly like the designs using bolder colour combinations. Black is the continuity shade, worked as a great backdrop or colour heightening highlight.
Our gifted “Blink” contributor, Sarah, spotted this cool girl in East London, and we thought she was a perfect addition to this print oriented post. The colour palette and pattern of her skirt looks really effective back to simple black. Don’t miss those great checked shoes too.
