In Full Bloom | Four Fresh Ways To Wear Florals This Season

Far from being strictly for spring, a good floral print is forever—especially when styled with flair.

Having long escaped their spring-only status, floral prints are once again reclaiming their place as one of the most enduring prints of all time.


In fact, the beauty of floral print fashion arguably lies in its simplicity, with minimal co-ordinating typically required to pull an ensemble together, thanks to the patterns’ reigning presence. At the same time, one should not underestimate the sartorial heights and versatility that await with the right approach to styling. Thankfully, there is no shortage of inspiration when it comes to modern ways with florals in 2022.  

From fresh takes on floral print dresses, to styling separates with bold botanicals, keep reading for The Aje Report’s guide to wearing florals this season; as demonstrated with the hand-painted ‘Roses of Provence’ print from Fall 22 ‘Provenance’.

In a Statement Silhouette

Offering maximal impact with minimal effort, there is nothing quite like the striking simplicity of a floral print dress in a statement silhouette. Primed for garden parties, brunch affairs and cocktail hours with equal panache, the key is to allow the blossoming motif to be the star of the show, keeping the accompanying accessories elevated yet understated.

As an Effortless Set

There is something to be said about the sheer ease that comes with a matching set, especially in the realm of vibrant patterns. Paired together, you have the blueprint for a standout ensemble. Worn apart with subtler separates, and you have versatility of wear in spades. Whichever route you take, be sure to include a bold accessory for the days that you want to turn the volume up all the way.

With a Modern Edge

Favour your florals with an edge? For a contemporary take on botanical-inspired dressing, look to balance bold blossom prints through the addition of strong design lines, tapered silhouettes and statement hardware. To channel a sense of tough femininity, consider a sleek pair of pants with a gold metal detailing, angular sunglasses and sculptural chain-strap heels.

With Sophisticated Separates

For an ensemble that is equally at home in the boardroom and the bar, pare the blooms back with softly tailored separates in understated neutrals. To keep things deceptively simple yet effortlessly chic, team a pair of white trousers alongside one colourful accessory to allow the florals their rightful place on centre stage.
