Winter Blooms

11.12.2012


Vintage fur coat, 
Mango floral dress (similar look here), 
Hinge wedge boots (last seen here), 
Vintage giraffe-print belt, 
Ring from Alter Brooklyn, 
Bliss Lau bowler bag (we love this steal too).

If you're anything like me and Micol, you undoubtedly stocked up on floral prints this summer, whether in the form of feather-light sundresses or bold, printed pants. But before you pack up those fun, bright patterns for next summer, here are a few of our tips for making them last well into the wintry months.

How to transition your florals into winter-wear:
1. Warm your bottom: Keep your toes + legs warm by throwing on a pair of tights and/or legwarmers, and some thick boots. I'm a sucker for contrasting a delicate dress with shitkicker boots. Free People has some great inspiration on their website right now.
2. Wrap it up: Top off the look with a killer coat. You can't go wrong with vintage furs or an oversized lapel.
3. Get chunky: Pair a bold, floral-print bottom with a chunky sweater or knit. You can even double up on tights underneath for added warmth.
4. Always accessorize: Tone down a look that's feeling to 'summery' by stocking up on thick socks, knee-highs, beanies + gloves. A chunky beanie looks great with just about anything.

How will you be wearing your florals this winter?

  16. I really love florals for fall -- especially the way you've done it here. I bought so many floral items in the summer, it would be nice to get as much use out of them as possible!
