Flowers? For me?

Florals are just as relevant in the dead of winter as they are in the middle of summer.  They add embellishment and interest to an outfit.  Florals need to be tailored to fit the season however; your cotton light pink floral tank is not going to do well even with a cardi over it right now.  Try changing the palate or maybe the cut of the piece.  Look for more structure in the winter whereas in the spring and summer, loose and casual is the way to go.

Banana Republic, Silk floral slit neck, $52 with code (BRSUPER25)
I really like the mix of charcoal with orange and pink.  Plus its got a great shrunken pocket detail on the top.

Anthropologie, Wispy Blooms Scarf, $54
Where to begin with this beauty? I like this with an LBD, under a trench, as a headband, and tied to my handbag.  Do it all scarf!

Modcloth, Bright up your alley, $70
This dress is darling! Even though the print is bold, you can really have fun with accessories.  Try a wide black belt and some great tights!

Floral is tough for bottoms, especially in the winter.  But this darker palate would look great with black tights and open-toed heels.

Florals are a great way to warm up an outfit.  They are interesting to look at and attract attention.  Remember to look for darker palates when wearing floral in the colder months.  

Be fabulous today!
