Seeing Stylist Magazine’s Chelsea Flower Show special this week got us thinking about a recent trend we’ve noticed, out in London and on some of our favourite blogs, for feminine florals contrasted with tough leather biker jackets – what we like to call Power Flower
(See what we did there?)
It’s best achieved with a light, flowing floral dress under a leather biker jacket, but looks great with floral shorts or skirts too. What we love is the way this trend takes the traditional tough street style image of the biker jacket and redefines it as one of delicate luxury. We’re sure we’ll be seeing plenty of Power Flower at festivals, garden parties and other alfresco events this summer.
The look isn’t solely confined to leather jackets and could be easily achieved by pairing leather trousers with a floral top or blouse. The key here is that the trousers are fitted and the top is loose, draped and flowing. For chillier evenings a patterned scarf thrown casually around your shoulders ads extra Flower to your Power.
