“Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking!” – Miranda Priestly (Devil Wears Prada)
Admit it, we have all thought this on countless occasions.
So let’s switch it up. Let’s talk about something no one generally does – Wearing Florals in Winter – Let’s make Miranda proud!
April is far away (This year January has dragged by pretty slowly) and there is still time till we actually see any flowers bloom, if you’re anything like me, the struggle to get to Spring is real.
Mainly because most of the items we keep for the warmer days are not practical to be worn during the winters – materials like cotton, linen, chiffon that are summer’s favorites are winter’s nightmares.
So to avoid this tricky situation I’m sharing 3 ways in which you can introduce Spring into your winter wardrobe.
But before we begin, you can shop my look below.
Step 1: Floral Dress First
‘Buying less and styling more’ is one of my intentions for this year. So I picked one of my floral dresses which is my summer favorite and decided to style it in the best way. I’m very thankful for the bell sleeves of the dress – any extra protection you can get is welcome.
The cinched waist design helps bring an air of femininity to the outfit.
#Protip If you’re considering buying a floral dress specifically for the winters, satin, cashmere, or velvet are the materials you should be looking at. I’ve lined up some great options for you below, based on the body types to help you make the right choice.
- If you’ve got a wider waist that is bigger than your bust (Pear Shape), dropped or embellished necklines, open-backs, should be your go-to options so you can show off your best feature. A-line styles and maxi-styles should be on your radar.
- Got a curvier bod? your figure (Hourglass) is made for dresses. Wrap dresses, fit & flare, go bonkers trying out new styles.
- If most of your weight is concentrated in your bust-waist section (Apple Shape) – strapless styles and lower necklines will look great on you.
- Weight fairly distributed throughout your body? (Athletic Shape) – while most styles work for you, always keep a belt around for creating the illusion of a curvier figure or opt for dresses with a cinched waist.
Step 2: Layer It Up
If you’re going to experiment with wearing a Spring dress in winters, a layer is an absolute must.
I’ve picked a neutral coat – it’s the main purpose is to keep me warm + add an extra bit of oomph! To the look.
I’m sharing links to some of my favorite coats below.
Step 3: Bring in Knee Length Boots
A pair of black, heeled, knee-high boots is a must in your winter wardrobe and might I say it will also become the most versatile piece ever. When it’s getting really cold outside and you do not want to compromise on the style, you’re going to find yourself reaching out for these boots each time.
There are so many great options available online, check out some of my absolute favorites below in different price ranges.
A special mention to the hot pink Gucci bag. A pop of color during the gloomy winter days is essential!
P.S. If you read it in your head in Miranda Priestly’s voice, we could be best friends.
