THERE’S no better time to wear floral prints than early summer with the promise of hotter weather to come.
This year floral patterns abound in every fashion collection – from tame English tea dress prints to brilliantly-coloured tropical designs.
Essentially, the larger you are the larger the print you can wear, so voluptuous girls should opt for bright, bold exotic fabrics. Those on the petite side look best in small floral-sprigged cottons and traditional 1940s style dresses cut for neat figures and to show off a trim waistline.
Maxi dresses are this year’s big summer fashion statement and are great for creating a long, lean silhouette.
