Wearing florals on bright summer days is easy. It’s harder in cold weather. You need to find the right combination of warmth and wit – without looking like you’ve just added a pair of woolly tights to a summer dress. I like to swap my pastel, ditzy florals for something a little darker – still pretty, but with a little more depth.
Here are three ways to do it.
Painterly floral… pretty and fluid, but darker and richer than their summer counterparts. Perfect for layering with thick grey tights, coats and boots.
Woodland florals… a chance to make your autumn florals a little more whimsical.
Floral embellishments… embroidery is everywhere this season. These are some of the prettiest I’ve seen, without looking too twee.
