5 fresh ways to dress up in florals
By Joanna Kyte, August 10, 2017
Florals don’t have to mean fancy. Need proof? Take a tiered, ankle-length dress and add contrasting, tough accessories: a studded waist belt, mini side bag and your trusty black Vans. Like a rose growing from concrete.
Bring your vacay vibes back to reality with this major mix of home and away. Style your best beach maxi dress with chunky accessories, such as a trophy satchel bag and heeled sandals. Achieve extra style points by pulling off vacation hair, too.
Some days call for ditching the rules and going fancy for no reason. Start with an OTT wedding-guest dress, before adding an oversized waist belt and a pair of colored heels. Complete your quest for greatness with an embellished side bag. Damn.
Getting from A to B just got a whole lot chicer with this daywear dream. To begin, pull a vivid, floral midi dress from your wardrobe and wear with your go-to denim jacket and chunky cut-out boots. A cute clutch will finish the look perfectly.
Giving the hand to typically bright florals, this 'fit will pre-empt your fall style. Hit up a muted palette with a cherry-print maxi dress, khaki heeled boots and a nude chain bag. Pink shades encouraged.
