Saying it with flowers has never been more appropriate. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, fashion has come over all romantic, with gorgeous bouquets and delicate petal details adorning the prettiest of spring's key pieces. And the most elegant way to be blooming gorgeous in the new season fashion garden? Go nude. Dazzling floral displays in blush tones were all over the runways, with Valentino leading the charge with impossibly feminine gowns scattered with intricate petals and stems on lighter than air silks and chiffons.An instant red carpet favourite, while the intricate haute couture offerings are out of most of our price ranges, the high street's take on flesh-toned florals are super-pretty and, best of all, purse-friendly. Update your basic nude-toned wardrobe staples with awesomely adorned accessories for the easiest way to trial the trend, and keep everything tonal from top to toe for added Hollywood gloss. Modern, fresh and more than just pretty - it's pretty blooming fabulous, actually.
