5 FRESH WAYS TO DRESS UP IN FLORALS
By Joanna Kyte, 10 August 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 holiday 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-as for no reason. Start with an OTT wedding-guest dress, before adding an oversized waist belt and a pair of coloured 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 autumn style. Hit up a muted palette with a cherry-print maxi dress, khaki heeled boots and a nude chain bag. Pink shades encouraged.
