So chic, so flirty, so perfectly nonchalant.
If you love florals as much as we do, you need them in your sartorial life year round. Who said we need to be separated from our beloved prints when the winter comes?
Au contraire! The floral print adds a ladylike softness and a romantic spin to the rainy, cold, dim days. This is the fashion’s revolution against the seasonal darkness. We are embracing the new season with free-flowing dresses, feminine tops, and bohemian-chic skirts to shake off the winter blues and add a little something to our outfits- a little sass, a little playfulness!
Our vote goes to timeless pieces with a contemporary spin. It’s a winning combination, and floral prints never go out of style! Multi-wear pieces like a maxi dress epitomise an elegant versatility without feeling overbearing, with a vintage, distressed denim jacket and a pair of combat boots during the day or with a perfectly structured, long blazer and sleek heels for a business-casual meeting. It’s a goes-with-everything wardrobe staple.
When it gets chilly, there’s nothing more satisfying than layering an oversized chunky jumper over a long-sleeved floral dress. Adding opaque black tights and a pair of flat boots will winterise your favourite floral dresses and will earn you lots of style points!
If you cherish your tomboyish side, florals don’t have to be soft and girlie. Go for a darker palette to bring out your sultry, sexy side and maximise drama as you turn heads in a sea of muted winter greys and blacks. It’s all about feeling confident and comfortable, and it’s about not having to bury your favourite pieces at the back of your closet and working with a capsule wardrobe mindset, where everything mixes and matches as the weather changes to give you an air of haute couture confidence as you stroll around the city.
And for those who are not ready to commit to a total floral look, flaunting the floral print now gets easier. You can do it by just adding artful separates to break the monotony of a monochrome palette this season. It feels fun, modern and very wearable. Scientifically backed, a colourful pattern is the ultimate mood booster that never fails to put us in an oh-so-chic cheerful mood. Think of it as sartorial serotonin. A sheer floral top will add the perfect amount of texture and depth, layered over a figure hugging, thin black turtleneck, teamed with black chiffon trousers and your killer heels for a night out. The options are endless!
And lastly, why don't you buy yourself a bouquet of fresh flowers to go with your favourite trend of the season? There’s nothing wrong with treating ourselves once in a while and indulge in a small dose of understated luxury to brighten up our days. Smell the flowers. Every time you’ll see them, they will remind you of those little acts of love to yourself and bring a smile to your face. The same goes for that lovely new top, that dress, that skirt. They can be your daily reminders of good times, savouring moments and getting ready to seise every day and create new, beautiful memories. The best is yet to come…
