Fantastic florals for instant femininity

April 22, 2022

This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

I freely admit I am usually a very plain dresser. I favour unfussy classic clothing but sometimes I feel I don’t look very feminine. Which is why I am now becoming a firm fan of florals. I instantly feel ‘prettier’. So Annabel and I borrowed a few flowery dresses, tops and scarves to try and illustrate how they can instantly add uplifting colour. For more info on any of the featured florals, just click on a pic or the relevant blue link.

One of Annabel and my absolute fave brands (as regular readers already know!) is Me+Em. It is their clothes that we both take out of our wardrobes to wear again and again and again.

Their well designed, beautifully cut clothes are – in our humble opinion – wardrobe classics and, although expensive, are great value over the years when you take cost-per-wear into account.

  • Ditsy Floral Volant Top – lightweight, so perfect for a warm summer day. Looks so fresh, especially when worn with white trousers £125. Available in two colourways. Me+Em
  • Really useful dress in beautifully fine cotton – super easy to throw on and look great in. It’s called the Riviera and will be available for £108 on the Silver Pink website by the end of April. White slip on trainer made in Italy from premium Italian leather £195 from Me+Em.
  • Glorious Deep Floral scarf in merino wool and silk mix. A statement piece that will add plenty of va va voom to an otherwise neutral outfit £57 from Silver Pink.


I also had a trawl on the internet and found these other fantastic florals. Ignore the oh-so-young models please – I have chosen these outfits because I think we 50+ women will also look amazing wearing them!
