As spring has well and truly sprung, JLife took a trip down to Manchester Fort to select its hottest floral picks to make your summer wardrobe blossom.


With Shavuot just around the corner, the community is set to decorate its homes with flowers in honour of the Israelites finding Mount Sinai lush with greenery. So why not embellish your summer wardrobe in colourful floral style to mark the harvest festival on 8th June? Plus, nothing says summer quite like a floral frock!

Luckily Manchester Fort is here help you prepare for the sunshine season, with a wide variety of retailers to make summer 2019 one to remember. With a store to suit every fashion need, the whole family can find their dream summer outfit. Top fashion retailers including New Look, Next, H&M, Mothercare and TK Maxx are now stocking the latest spring/ summer collections to help you find that picture perfect look for any occasion.

We found this amazing multicoloured floral-print Jessica Howard white & black polka dot dress in TK Maxx. Featuring a mock-leather black belt and sleeveless design, this snazzy halter-neck mini dress is perfect for celebratory occasions.

When shopping in TK Maxx there is a huge range of amazing products – but shop fast as it often quickly rotates stock, so the bargain buys aren’t around for long!





We fell in love with this little off-the-shoulder number the moment we set eyes on it. Ideal for your holiday collection, this floral dress has been designed with intricate handcrafted detailing for a unique look.

Add some flower power to your look with this pretty orange tea dress from New Look. Wear with espadrilles on sunny days to turn up the heat.







This black floral-patterned jersey dress is the perfect outfit for a trip out on a sunny afternoon. Picked up in H&M at a bargain price, you don’t have to break the bank to look fantastic this summer.







It’s not all about the adults – these cool and colourful bird rainbow sandals are perfect for the little ones, with a chunky buckle fastening great for nippers who are learning to dress themselves.
