Yes its true, florals are trending for spring. And in the words of Miranda Priestly, it's not "groundbreaking" but in all seriousness this season's florals felt fresh and deliciously feminine with their tiered skirts, ruffled jumpsuits and voluminous sleeves. But with spring a little way off, (temperatures plummeted in NYC today) the question is how to wear them now?
Check out my 3 ways to Wear Florals Now and Later
Outfit 1. The Floral Dress
Wear Now: Whether your dress is long or short the same rules apply, you need to toughen up those feminine florals for winter. A moto jacket and boots (don't forget your tights) are the perfect pieces. You can also layer a turtleneck underneath, as I have above.
Wear Later: It's time to break out those cute Jane Birkin-esq basket bags and your favourite espadrilles. Hurrah!
Outfit 2. The Floral Blouse
Wear Now: A floral blouse, I believe, works best with any type of denim as it's good to add a little edge to the floaty top half. Your jeans can be any style: skinny or loose.
Wear Later: Stick with denim, and try a denim skirt (short or midi length) or even cut-offs.
n.b. Add a red lip for a dash of colour, for either look.
Outfit 3. The Floral Skirt
Wear Now: Dark based florals really will transition the seasons. To fully winterise the look, add a streamlined turtleneck and boot (ankle or knee high).
Wear Later: I love mixing prints and a graphic gingham (or stripe) works wonderfully with florals.
