Cooper St Mirrored Paradise Pants $109.95 // Camilla & Marc Gypsy Song Top $220 //Siren Ingrid Heel $139.95 // Karl Lagerfield K7 watch $449


To make this trend wearable at work stick to block colour separates & choose one statement piece like these Paradise pants from Cooper St. If the print is more foliage than floral keep accessories to a minimum & keep them edgy. These mesh insert gladiator sandals from Siren keep it just tough enough and instead of jewellery add a masculine watch.  Team with this layered sleeveless top to look and keep cool for summer.

As with botanical prints choose one statement item, like this bomber jacket from Wish. Due to the black and white in the print, keep the rest of your outfit monochrome with this easy one piece jumpsuit from French Connection. Add a leather sandal and add a pop of colour on your toes. You’re good to go!
