Japanese floral print jacket
One of the many things I hope to post more of are unusual places to find amazing outfits. So basically, in the near future I want to share with you my secret vintage shops; local stores that I go to when I’m bored of the high street, or just simply want an outfit that stands out.
The summer season always gives me an excuse to go bold and bright with prints, but also do the complete opposite with white, minimal and fresh palettes. The bold florals won this time.
The floral trend this season showcases a strong Japanese influence. You have prints or embroidery traditionally found on Kimonos, now decorating either bomber jackets or regular blazers.
When you have a beautiful floral print such as the one I’m wearing in this photo, it’s tempting to play it safe by teaming it up with a plain white or cream blouse. However to make it more interesting I decided to wear it with a Chinese neck collar shirt and a white skirt. I love the combination of blue stripes and florals and this works particularly well because of the blue in the jacket. If you’re going to mix different prints together it’s important that you find a staple colour or a shape that’s similar and unites the two pieces. So in this case my staple colours are blue and white and then the rest can be as bold or as loud as I want. Next time you buy a floral print why not try mixing it up by adding a different print. Give it a try.
Have a look at some of my floral print recommendations.
