I feel that there is a certain code of ethics that needs to be followed when it comes to wearing floral prints. It’s so easy to become infatuated with the elaborate combinations layered on runway models. We all see mixtures of motifs featuring on billboards or in Vogue, but sometimes we need to step back and remember that less is actually more. Fashion shows are called shows for a reason; the designers lavish displays of apparel are devised to entertain, inspire and challenge the boundaries of creativity. So when it comes to wearing a statement piece such as this dark floral blazer from Zara, duly note that it was the notorious Mademoiselle Coco Chanel that once said, “simplicity is the key note of true elegance,” so in other words, I didn’t have to pair my blazer with a pair of pansy patterned pants!
