As mentioned in this post, I'm starting to do a little trend series in which I pick one of the seasons biggest catwalk trends and create a high street edit of my favourite pieces. 

After starting with the 80s trend of SS17, I thought I'd go with the floral trend next because – not only am I a die-hard fan of the print in almost all of its forms and guises (I will wear floral tops, dresses, shoes, jackets for life... Check my picks of the high streets best of all of these below!) – but it is a trend that was all over the Spring/Summer AND Autumn/Winter 2017 catwalks. So anything floral rn is a great investment, tell this to your conscience.

Bearing this in mind (the fact that you will probs want to wear your floral pieces throughout winter too) I have picked items that will work for both seasons, i.e. dark florals, versatile styles and so on. I'm pretty sure the below items can be worn whether it is hot or cold, winter or summer.

Personally, when it comes to styling floral prints and embroidery, I like to grunge them up a bit as you can see in this post and this post. My style is not that girly so I love wearing a floral skirt with a band tee and docs or a floral dress with biker boots and a leather jacket. 

Another point that I feel I should ramble on about, is the fact that I am going through a strange yellow obsession at the moment, and anything yellow and also floral I cannot seem to resist. This perhaps is the least seasonally versatile form of floral but where there's a will there's a way – I think the floral tops I have picked below would look great with jeans and a fur coat in winter.
