Winter may be nearly upon us but that doesn’t mean filling your wardrobe full of bland and dull items and losing all sense of style. This season floral prints are everywhere so why not use this usually summery trend to brighten up even the gloomiest of winter days.
When the weather turns chilly the first thing on our wishlist is a cosy jumper to fend off the icy winds. A floral jumper will be the perfect partner for skinny jeans, maxi or midi skirts and a bold design will require little styling as the impact will all come from your patterned knit. This look will be great for lazy days and when you simply can’t be bothered to try all that hard!
A great way of incorporating the trend without going overborad is to add in floral accessories. Shoes and boots will add a real pop of colour and interest to the humblest of outfits. Flats are always great for the daytime when paths can be slippy and wet and wedges will add glamour for the evening as they add height without the wobbly stiletto dilemma. To shield all your prescious belongings from the weather a backpack is on trend and functional and a bold floral print will liven up any getup.
Trousers are the perfect way to stay warm and on trend this season and as the fashion world goes mad for tailoring and prints we, naturally, get the printed trouser. To keep the look smart and sophisticated tailoring is essential, this look will be great for the office and more formal occassions. For a more relaxed style go for a palazzo style pant for comfort and laid back cool.
An essential addition to any winter wardrobe is a shower proof jacket. Quilted jackets have already made their way into our wardrobe so why not update this trend with floral details. A reversible style will ensure you get the most out of your jacket, as the one below shows. Dare to wear the floral side to add edge to any style or stay classic with plain navy and turn the cuffs up to reveal the floral pattern underneath.
So, if the chilly weather is giving you the winter blues, brighten up your wardrobe with some floral sunshine instead!
