I’m a big fan of florals, and an even bigger fan of blush pink, especially this super cozy sweater which makes this a damn near perfect dressed up casual look for me. Florals can be stereotyped as a spring and summer only kind of print which makes it hard for some people to wear all year round, but for this week’s Trendy Tuesday I’m here to tell you florals are great any time and I’ll give you some tips for how to wear florals all year.
Mix Light and Dark Colours
A great way to wear florals all year is to mix light and dark colours, or play it safe by keeping to a darker pallet in the colder months. Generally I look at the different colours within the floral pattern and add an over piece in one of those colours. If you have a darker floral print with some lighter tones like the one pictured below you can pair it with a pink or tan over piece whether that be a sweater, cardigan, blazer, or chunky scarf. You can also do the reverse and have a lighter floral print with some darker over pieces.
Think Outside the Box
Think outside the box with your pairings. The outfit below is fairly basic with a floral tank with jeans and an oversized sweater, but don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. One of my all time favourite way to wear florals in the winter is to wear a cute floral dress underneath a longer sweater – it’s super cute! You could also use more layers and pair a long sleeve shirt underneath a floral tank or dress, and you could also use a large scarf as a shawl. You could also pair some floral leggings with some of your favourite tops and sweaters, or ease into it by wearing items with floral accents like a scarf, handbag, or belt.
