Darling Buds Of Spring

Florals exploded onto the s/s 2014 catwalks, with everything from petals and pretty pastels to bold bouquets. Our favourite take on the trend is one that uses shades and patterns inspired by bright red summer roses against a dark background.

We asked some friends of Stylist to interpret the trend, coined ‘midnight rose’, with the help of stylist Candice Bailey, and photographed their look. Candice then selected the wearer with her favourite translation. Zoe was the winner, and was given the opportunity to star in a shoot for the Ford Fiesta.

The iconic car’s latest model is available in on-trend Race Red paint and Panther Black metallic finish, with halogen projector headlights and kinetic design to add to its fashion credentials. It’s just as stylish on the inside. Options on the Ford Fiesta include stylish chrome highlights and enhanced ambient lighting to illuminate dials, switches and displays, as well as high-quality, part-leather seats and finishings. Here are some of our favourite looks inspired by ‘midnight rose’.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Zoe, 24, Barnes

A silhouette-skimming dress exudes further femininity with a graphic floral print. Toughen the look up with inky black accents. A leather biker jacket and killer ankle strap heels are bang-on.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Sam, 29, Marylebone

Daytime insouciance is a cinch with this relaxed longline blazer in poppy red. Add distressed boyfriend jeans and a silk floral blouse and you’re good to go.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Elinor, 29, Maida Vale

Slot the floral trend into your 9-5 with this work appropriate tailored trio. Pillar-box trousers add punch, a jet black shirt shows you mean business and a printed maxi style waistcoat keeps it all fresh.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Kirsten, 27, Bayswater

Balance an oversized tunic dress with chunky black ankle boots. A white blazer draped over your shoulders adds structure after-dark.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Tash, 26, Hertfordshire

Black skinny jeans, punchy red and black two-tone heels and a patent top handle tote dramatically frame this floral top for a look that takes you effortlessly from desk to bar.

Darling Buds Of Spring

Emily, 26, Essex

Primary colours guarantee maximum standout. Red is the perfect foil to white and splashes of bright blue make it all pop. This statement necklace and velvet heels add luxurious lustre.
