Some people think florals are only for the spring time – but not us! Floral patterns and styles look great year-round, especially in autumn and winter. The secret to styling floral patterns in the cooler months is in the colour palettes. Muted colours are perfect for this time of year, as extremely bright pieces can look out of place on a cloudy day. However, that’s not to say steer away from colour completely! Below, see our guide to wearing a variety of floral pieces, and learn the best way to incorporate this trend into your winter wardrobe.
Light and Dainty
Just because it is Autumn doesn’t mean you can’t wear lighter colours. Muted pink flowers are a classic floral look, and on a cream background look elegant and tasteful.
This Double Layer Top is exactly that and is one of our favourite pieces for the cooler months. The draped hemline is very flattering and unique, and the long sleeves are sure to keep you warm! Wear with black jeans and a black jacket to let this top pop.
Wrap it in Black
A black wrap dress is a great base for a floral pattern. Not only is the wrap dress one of the biggest trends this season, it’s also great for winter dressing – just add thick tights and a jacket!
This Floral Wrap Dress is a great example – the auburn foliage looks fantastic against the black background, and the long sleeves and hemline will keep you extra warm. The wrap tie accentuates your waist, and the hi/lo hemline is super flattering on your legs. What’s not to love? Wear with tights and a jacket for work or dress it up with heels and your favourite bag!
Stylish and Subtle
One of our favourite ways to wear floral is to wear just a top that has a subtle pattern, paired with a plain bottom. Alternatively, this works just as well vice versa! This strategy adds some texture to your overall outfit and is a great way to spice up your wardrobe without committing to an overwhelmingly busy look.
Our High Neck Blouse is a great option for this look. The high neck is a major trend this season and paired with the ruched sleeves and tie waist makes for a super flattering look. Additionally, the burnt orange and forest green colour palette is perfect as the days cools down. Wear this piece with a white midi skirt or pants for a look that works casually or formally – just alter your footwear accordingly!
Florals don’t have to be muted and subdued. There are many bold and contrasting floral patterns that will make just the right statement this winter!
Our Hi Lo Floral Dress features large white lilies over a navy background, with a stunning waterfall hemline. This dress is great option for evening events worn with your favourite heels and cardigan if needed. Big, bold florals are a fun way to use florals to create a modern, geometric look.
