Inspiration for an outfit can come from anywhere. Whether it’s through your IG feed or the runway, we often look to already composed looks to get us thinking differently about our wardrobe. But as we’ve seen the industry adapt over the last few months, it seems about time to look to new resources for out #outfitinspo.

With a plethora of experiences having been disrupted due to lockdown, our usual bank of inspiration is running low. But, with the ability to enjoy the majority of what London has to offer currently available to us, why not look to your everyday to re-energise your garms? Simple pleasure, like the colours from a curated flower bouquet or the cloud formation of a summer sky, are equally as invigorating as style stimuli, and our curated sets based on what we love about London proves exactly that.

There is something wistfully romantic about pausing outside a London florist to take in the colours of an artfully arranged bouquet, maybe bending to smell a particularly aromatic cluster. The fragrant scents entice you from a distance, before the vibrant colours beg for closer inspection. The hectic city slows down for a moment, it seems that the world becomes just a bit more magical, and charming chance-encounters are possible: you could meet the love of your life over a bunch of peonies. These amorous moments are the inspiration for our outfits this week, as we choose three outfits to coordinate you with the most beautiful bouquets that have caught our eye.

Flowers are the traditional symbol of romance, so set the mood for any romantic day out by matching your outfit to a bouquet of feminine florals. Keep the palette pastel; this sexy yet sweet lilac slip dress by Vince is a winner, and layer it over this And Other Stories short sleeved knit if there's a breeze in the air. To keep the outfit from looking too girly, throw a pop of magenta into the mix with this Marni tote, and keep your feet from turning that shade by wearing a comfy pair of Proenza Schouler Birkenstock's. 

The next generation of florists are actively breaking the old stereotype; Athlyn started her company in 2019 and yet has already made a name for her bold and experimental designs. Channel this energy into your wardrobe by experimenting with prints and colours, with these Paisley print shorts from Zimmerman. Continue to colour clash with a coral tee and this turquoise necklace, then finish the look with these statement mules from Y/Project for an eye-catching outfit that is sure to attract vibrant energy.

Not all bouquets are made to say ‘I love you’, so make a bold statement with unexpected colour combinations: team this close-fitting tangerine shirt with these floaty blue trousers to channel this vivid bouquet. Accessorise with these green ballerina mules and a lemon headband from Prada to prove that you’re no shrinking violet.
