Come Spring Carnival, the darker tones start to disappear and the floral dresses come out in full force. With this comes a huge selection of styles, patterns, and colours to choose from, meaning your wardrobe will be ready for any occasion come Spring time.

Look for a style that cinches in at the waist, then sits out around the hips, creating a classic hourglass silhouette – subtle or accentuated – perfect for every body shape. Balance out the hourglass form with fine spaghetti straps and another touch of extra design detailing. (Read: deep V, low backs, or a perfectly placed slit)

Go for a big, bold print, drawing attention to the design elements and sharp detailing of the outfit. Pair it with a modern style fascinator for a top-to-toe, Spring Carnival appropriate outfit.

Spring Cocktail events are the perfect chance to show off your daring side, especially when you opt for the latest in seasonal trends. While some trends that came from this years Spring/Summer wardrobes are not for the faint-hearted (Renaissance style ruffles at Gucci, anyone?) the slightly more subdued details are perfect come Spring cocktail season.

Go bold in a high-necked, long sleeved outfit with a classic, dainty floral print. Turn around however, and you’ll see why this stunning style will turn heads all night long. Modernise the print with a touch of drama: criss-cross lacing, beading and semi-sheer materials are all perfect for the part when it comes to floral dresses.

Think cool. Think casual. Think anything that can be worn with ease and will have you dancing the night away without a single worry. Floral dresses work wonders for Spring weddings, drawing inspiration from nature and everything that’s in bloom.

Avoid blending in by opting for a outfit that repeats each floral print with plenty of blank space in between. The extra background colour will draw more attention to the detail in each print, as well as the overall style of the dress.

Look for one made from a softer material, maximising the floral dresses drape and flow. Pair it back with a pair of wooden clogs and your set to be the best dressed wedding guest.

Weekend Getaway

With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to embrace the increasingly hot weather and bring out your endless array of casual floral dresses. For day or for night, these are the perfect option to (neatly) throw in your weekend bag for a quick outfit fix if any last-minute dramas were to occur.

Look for a dress that’s lightweight and easy to store. Crepes and silks will crinkle easily so be sure to have an iron on hand, if need be. Choose a dress in a bright tone with a lighter print, making the entire outfit ‘pop’. Softer designs (think wrap around skirts and ruffled hems or sleeves) will give off that Spring-time vibe that will have you floating around the harbour-side bar with ease.
