Whenever I go shopping, I always tend to gravitate towards feminine florals. Every Spring/Summer I wear my favorite floral pieces to death and I must admit, I miss them once the cold New York weather settles in. A few weeks ago, when I was cleaning out my closet for the Winter, I decided to get creative with my styling and make my florals work all year round.
The first thing that you need to know when it comes to winter florals is that it is all about balance. When paired with a chunky sweater, rugged boots, tights and a warm jacket, florals can be totally winter appropriate. Mixing cutesy prints with tougher pieces like a leather jacket and motorcycle boots creates a perfect union of sassy and sweet. Lately I’ve been totally obsessed with these boots from J.Crew and this jacket from Asos.
The best part about this look is that florals were all over the Spring 2012 runways so you can consider yourself ahead of the game!
As usual I have included some street-style photos to help inspire your own styling as well as some great winter-floral pieces that I found online.
