There are many things we’re forced to abandon once the snow falls. Think skin-baring crop tops, miniskirts and tank tops (unless you’re willing to layer all of these into oblivion). But floral patterned pieces aren’t on the list. While florals are usually reserved for spring, what better way to brighten up dreary winter days (and nights) than with some flower power?
There are some conditions, though. Spring florals are always vivid and sunny, but winter florals are typically more moody and alluring. You can rock bright shades, but they should be tempered with darker floral patterns or the reverse, vibrant flowers backed by a black or navy background.
The Fall 2020 runways showcased winter florals in new arrangements. Brock Collection took a more romantic approach offering floral patterns with a Victorian twist. Tory Burch brought things into a new era with an Edwardian-style jacket boasting puffed sleeves and delicate buttons. Ganni gave us a colorful sheer shirt ideal for wearing under blazers or letting the collar poke out of sweaters or even sweatshirts.
Now’s the time to take a look through your closet to see if any of your florals fit the season. If your wardrobe is lacking, here are some stylish winter floral pieces that will freshen things up.
