Brunch
Co-ords are big news right now, so what better way to pay tribute to our favourite print than by doubling up? Perfect for a smart casual dress code, neutral hues avoid overkill so stick to an autumnal colour palette and you’re onto a winner.

Dinner Date
For a more sophisticated take on the trend, monochrome florals are the perfect option. They may be more difficult to find than your traditional brights, but this Coast crop gets top marks! Embellishments help add a little evening elegance too, so don’t be scared to branch out.

Girls' Night Out
For a night on the town, it’s got to be a LFD (little floral dress). Again, make sure you keep the evening vibe in check with a dark and mysterious colour palette – there are plenty of options on the high-street, but this New Look number ticks all the boxes.

Ladies Who Lunch
Bohemia and florals go hand-in-hand, so for a more casual afternoon, this is the best trend to turn to. Splashed across maxis or minis, now’s the time for a softer colour palette so work neutral greys, blues and pinks for a pretty powerful look that will get you noticed.

Mall Trawl
While people often associate the print with dresses, there are plenty of separates on the market that look just as chic. A simple cami can be made more interesting by being teamed with another clashing floral, for example. Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

The Office
 The good thing about the trend is that it transcends dress-codes, so your blooms look professional in the boardroom, too. A pencil skirt is the most fail-safe – and Team Ahlan!’s favourite – way to work the look, but fitted trews will work nicely too. Just add a white shirt and you’re good to go!

Making a trip in the coming months? You’ll want to be comfy on board, but that doesn’t mean you have to let your style slip. Think loose trousers or harem pants for the ultimate in casual cool – and they look great teamed with denim, too, so give it a whirl!
