Although commonly associated with a strand of pearls and kitten heels, the florals trend is having a renaissance. Designers such as Stefani Gabbana and Domenico Dolce who released their Spring 2016 collection in Milan few days ago, showcased several dresses in florals. Whenever florals is mentioned it is always a picture perfect summer or spring that comes to our minds. Florals can be worn at any season depending on how you decide to style your floral outfit. You shouldn’t wait till summer to wear one.
Heavy with jewels and goldwork embroidery, wrapped up in padded, luxe silks and swathes of fur, crystal-dotted crowns nestled among extravagant up ‘dos, flats, wedges or heels, you decide how you want to wear yours. During one of my style workshops I was told by a group of gorgeous women that they have never worn any floral outfits. Most of them didn’t even have a pair in their wardrobe. For them, florals are too complicated to wear. I totally disagree with that notion. I actually think that florals are very easy to style. For example, if you’re are wearing a floral top, pair it with a plain trouser or skirt, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
Of course florals are no ordinary dress dotted in pretty blooms —just in the same way that the Vetements must-have vintage jeans were no ordinary denim hand-me-downs. But we’re all rocking those vintage jeans. Why not give florals a chance.
I paired my floral dress with a fur bolero because that’s the appropriate way to feel warm in this very cold weather while wearing a floral dress. If I wore this gorgeous floral dress during the summer there definitely won’t be any fur coat on sight and I would probably have worn some wedge sandals, or even flats. That’s how versatile styling a floral outfit is.
Also because florals are made of different colours patterned in an outfit, it is advisable to look out for the best colour that suits your skin tone in those florals.
