Sound like an oxymoron? Well, it isn’t. Gothic Florals are the answer to all your edgy, quirky dreams. Think bold, dark and luxurious, gothic floral prints add depth and drama to an otherwise feminine, seen-it-all-before look. In rich tones like burgundy, purple, forest green and charcoal, you can be sure a print like this will give you serious edgy appeal. To work this print go for dramatic shapes and textural fabrics - wide shoulders, billowy sleeves, ruffles and collars in silk, brocade and satin. To maximise the effect, style back with ultra-skinny jeans, black biker boots and a smokey eye.
