street style muses in Carven and Stella McCartney
This “look” has been around for a while so apologies to all if you’ve “been there, done that.” The mass of floral sweaters that have hit the stores (be they virtual, or not) sings very pretty “buy meeeeeeee” songs to me every time I see one. It started with a mild obsession with the Christopher Kane collection. and then developed into a full blown crush over fashion week when even the edgiest of the muses came out wearing the look. Florals have somehow got chic (if not a bit gothic), no longer are they just got the more mumsy, chino wearing people in this world...
Unsurprisingly this was once look the high street picked up on, how hard can a sweater with a few flowers on be to replicate? Granted the quality will never be the same, but this ASOS (£13, yeah really) and River Island duplicates really are quite something considering their price points. My wishlist below really is just that… £1000 on a sweater is not something I can really justify becoming homeless for (even if I was the best dressed person at 3am on a bench in Victoria station…).

Sweaters can be worn all year long, be they for summer evenings or part of a layer-on-mass ensemble in winter. So this is one look I am 100% happy to invest in. Personally, pairing them up with my boyfriend jeans (bank roll option: Paige Jimmy Jimmys, budget: ASOS’ Bradys) and my chunky sandals from last year (if in doubt, go to Whistles. Just do it. Click here. NOW) for my “springtastic” outfits.
And lastly, here are my wider high street picks of the trend - enjoy!
