Reasons to Wear Floral

Spring has sprung and it’s fair to say that Spring and Flowers go hand in hand. What better way to celebrate than to done your favourite floral print? Therefore, florals are an absolute staple to hang in your Spring wardrobe.


Floral prints can be seen as quirky and the number one rule to them is to make sure they are not printed on cheap fabric. This will make them resemble a synthetic bouquet rather than the chic noble look you desire.


Spring is when the flowers bloom and the temperatures rise. It is a time when you put your boots away and bring your welcomed pumps out. When choosing your floral print, be sure to keep in mind the below tips:

1. Break the pattern with raw, minimal fabrics.










Our Opal Dress is a perfect example to demonstrate this rule. It was designed as part of Stokes Thompson’s Spring Summer Collection 2013. This dress is very versatile and is ideal for any special occasion, beach resort function, or for just dining out on a hot Summer’s evening. It is sleeveless, three quarter length and is extremely comfortable to wear. The boldness of this print against the soft neutral is a simply stunning pairing, which well supports the frame of its handkerchief cut.

2. Big prints can in no way deny you are wearing flowers.


Birds of Paradise is a beautiful Mozelle dress designed in collaboration between Stokes Thompson and Melbourne designer Hanni. It features small pleating over the bust to create a flattering detailed look. This gathering also provides amazing fall and movement.

Birds of Paradise‘s big, beautiful print is matter-of-factly magnificent. The pattern is positioned on certain areas instead of repeating itself. This fabulous design looks positively amazing on this luxurious fabric.




3. Mix and Match with other prints.

Remember, floral prints also look great alongside animal prints, such as leopard or zebra. Perhaps you would prefer to add a just a splash of floral to your design, such as on a pair of shoes or accessorized with a handbag?

Zebra Long is a silver/black patterned zebra sequin floor length dress. It is constructed from high quality polyester nylon and features a high neckline. It would favour any floral clutch or floral footwear.

Floral accessories will always showcase your flawless femininity.
