Don’t tell anyone, but we’re secretly pleased that the heat wave is over and we can get back to business as usual. That means bringing your winter wardrobe out of hibernation and stashing all your summer pieces – or so you thought. Actually, with a bit of know-how you can still get the most out of warm weather favourites without risking frostbite or looking totally out of step with the season. Read on to find out how to style the floral skirt for autumn, winter and beyond.
Go on, admit it – you feel warmer just looking at this outfit, don’t you? We like to think of it as the ultimate example of savvy dressing. Layer up with a knit and a snuggly coat and your floral skirt will have a new lease of life when the weather turns. The key is in the colour, anything too bright or twee looks out of place on gloomy days, which is when dark florals really come through. Just make sure your look’s smart enough to see you through all your weekend plans with accessories that have serious staying power.
We’ve all been there, you’re meant to meet your mates or the in-laws for lunch but you have no idea what to wear – jeans feel too casual and a dress is a bit full-on. Enter the floral skirt, ideal for days when you need to look presentable, but just want to be able to get up and go. Wear it with an oversize white shirt, a slouchy knit or a t-shirt and that’s all you need. After all, there’s nothing better than basking in all the compliments and knowing you’ve thrown your outfit together.
It might not be unbearably hot anymore, but it still isn’t quite cold enough to properly wrap up, is it? Well, that’s where your summer staple transforms into an autumn outfit with basically zero effort. These florals will easily transition into chilly days and nights without leaving you looking like you’re in the wrong season – just add a bang on trend puffa jacket for extra cosiness and a pair of trainers. Easy.
