Winter florals … what to wear this week

Winter florals … what’s the lowdown?

I love a floral in the summer as much as the next gal, but thanks to some awe-inspiring prints in the floral arena this upcoming season, winter florals have suddenly got my undivided attention.

The winter florals are a tad more somber than their warm weather bretheren, but don’t let this fool you into thinking that they don’t pack the same pattern punch. You can still get statement bright details and ditsy romantical styles, which will certainly appeal to other floral addicts out there apart from just me.

Winter florals… how to wear them.

The best way to work a floral in the winter is to pair it with dark neutrals so that your selected patterned piece stays the centre of attention. It’s also a wise move to consider your size – if you are on the petite side opt for smaller prints so that you are not engulfed in a triffid-like manner by the design. If you are on the taller side, knock yourself out with a nice bold piece.

I love this L.K.Bennett skirt which could take you from office to evening effortlessly, it’s also currently on sale – double score!

I paired it with this classic dark wash chambray shirt from J.Crew and this slouchy peacoat from Topshop – both of which are hot on the trend lists this season.

The Tabitha Simmons pointy flats are also on sale right now at The Outnet.

I added this silk tie scarf from J.Crew which I saw in store last week and is seriously delicious. Finally a Topshop statement necklace and Tory Burch bag to finish the look.
