As spring rolls around, there’s something about blossom suddenly appearing everywhere that makes us want to dress like the season we’re in. The sight of pale pink or white blossom fluttering against a bright blue sky is enough to cheer anyone, so it’s no surprise that florals start springing up everywhere else at this time of year too – such as our wardrobes.
The first thing that might spring to mind is a floral dress, but what about giving the rest of your outfit a sprinkling of blossom also? Next is currently making a very good case for floral footwear, after posting a picture of a pair of floral Vans to its Instagram, which was instantly met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
With over 17,000 likes and more than 650 comments, it’s not hard to see why everyone loves these floral Vans. Featuring ditsy meadow flowers against an ecru background on the classic low-top lace-up Vans silhouette, these would instantly prettify any outfit, from jeans and T-shirt combos to a plain black dress – perfect for all your pub garden meet-ups, Sunday brunches and post-lockdown shopping sprees.
People flocked to the comments to share their love for the trainers, writing ‘I love these’, ‘these are very me’ and ‘I need them in my life’, while others tagged friends to tell them that ‘these are a bit of you’.
Every so often it seems that everyone goes mad for one particular item (with it often starting on Instagram) and this is exactly one of those times. As such, the trainers are selling out fast on the Next website, however, we’d expect sold out sizes to be restocked fairly soon, considering how popular they’ve proven to be.
