WHILE spring has arrived, there's no need to go heavy petal - there's a fresher way to handle florals.
Go for one statement piece to pair with no-fuss denim, or keep the look light by choosing blooms on a white base to breathe life into neutral staples.
If botanicals really are not your thing, a crisp white shirt or broderie anglaise in a pretty pastel will still capture the spirit of the season.
Anchor the look with forever-fashionable tan accessories.
