15 Ways to Wear Florals This Autumn

floral dress

As summer has met September, I've been considering how my current wardrobe can now transition from Summer into Autumn. This year I've embraced floral prints more than ever and I for one think its about time that we challenge the assumption that florals are just for Spring.

If like me, you're thinking of that 'Devil Wears Prada' quote that put me off wearing florals in my teenage years, I'm here to prove to you that yes, florals really are "groundbreaking". Here's 15 ways to wear florals this Autumn.


THE FLORAL MIDI DRESS


At calf length, midi dresses are perfect for Autumn and can be worn with tights or without thanks to their comfortable length. Below I've partnered some of my favourite new season midi dresses with high rise black leather boots and an oversized straw tote bag to add an extension to the Autumnal colour palette.

If you wanted to enhance your silhouette on a looser fit dress, try adding a thick waist belt like the one I have linked below to pull you in at the waist.




THE FLORAL MAXI DRESS


Offering ankle length coverage and being easily layer-able, the maxi dress is ideal for Autumn when you want to feel confident and comfortable. You can easily partner a maxi dress with ankle boots and a fine knit cardigan for cooler temperatures or even make it more of a statement with a seasonal fedora hat.





THE FLORAL SKIRT


Knitted or woven, the floral skirt is a lovely piece for your wardrobe. You can dress it up or down depending on your day. My go to choice for styling a floral skirt this Autumn would be to keep it chic with an all black colour palette, a high ankle Chelsea boot and a sophisticated structured handbag.





THE FLORAL TOP


For a more casual dress code, you may opt for a pretty floral top. You could choose to dress it up with a chic pair of tailored trousers and a pair of heels, or instead style it for a daytime look as I have below.




THE FLORAL ACCESSORY


Floral prints aren't just for clothes! I adore intricate gold jewellery with floral themes; luxurious handbags that offer a bohemian edge; and hair accessories that tie a look together beautifully. Here are some of my current season picks.

The Outfit Inspired By the 90s

Nothing screams 90s fashion like a fitted shirt and a tan shoulder bag. As a 90s baby, I felt naturally at home with this look. It's totally Monica Geller from F.R.I.E.N.D.S and I absolutely love it. You'll often find me swamped in oversized jumpers, so it was a refreshing change to wear something a little more tailored and flatteringly pinched in at the waist. As for the tan handbag, I adore the rectangular shape and the ease of flinging it over the shoulder for a chic look, whilst only carrying your bare essentials. 

Now all I need are some cat eye sunglasses and Sex and the City on VHS.

How I Style the Printed Blouse

The printed blouse - normally it's an item of clothing that lots of us would shy away from, but with the right styling, there is no reason to be scared. When I saw this monochrome animal print blouse pictured online, I couldn't shut down my computer without putting in a cheeky little order. With a high neck and ruffled sleeves, this blouse is the perfect example of an item that could be  easily styled as casual or workwear. With this look, I've opted for an in between with the classic (nobody knows what it means) smart casual.

I would suggest to pair any bold prints with one similar colour for a full outfit. Here, I have picked out black as a core colour choice, wearing it with my black skinny jeans, black faux leather jacket and black biker boots. Partnering the printed top with a solid colour will draw more attention to the pattern, and avoid any clashing print partnerships.

The Winter Coat I'm Loving This A/W19

 My number one priority at the moment is keeping warm whilst out and about in the cold temperatures with numerous layers. That being said, I don't want to sacrifice on style either, and that's where my new teddy bear coat comes in.

It's the coat that everyone has been loving! I realise I'm perhaps slightly late to jump on the bandwagon, but this is a trend that I have been considering for a while. Teddy bear coats are one of the easiest coats to throw on when you're rushing out of the door, knowing that you will still look well 'put-together' and not feel a chill either. As I'm not much of a skirt wearer currently (especially during this season), I have opted for an all black outfit to contrast with my cream coloured coat. It's simple but chic, and perfect for an every day casual look. To jazz up the outfit, I've accessorised by adding a baker boy hat to accompany my coat. Despite moaning about the cold and darker evenings 99% of the time, I do adore bringing out my big warm coats and stylish hat collection when the time comes around. Winter fashion - it's a YES from me!

Essential Clothes to Wear on a Beach Holiday

Are you stuck whilst packing for your next holiday, or perhaps you're putting together a shopping list for your next trip to the beach? In order to help your packing this season, I've put together a selection of my top three summer beach holiday essentials.



THE BIKINI
A comfortable and flattering bikini is key. Whether it's a high waist style, a standard pant, or even a thong, just ensure that you are feeling comfortable and confident whilst wearing it. There are so many different styles, patterns and prints on the market these days that it almost makes it impossible to choose!

THE DAY DRESS
There is nothing worse than feeling hot, sticky, sandy and uncomfortable on a beach holiday. So ensure you've got yourself covered with a light and airy summer day dress. I found that cotton materials were the best way to go to prevent clothes feeling heavy, sticky and non-absorbant. I packed two floral dresses on our last trip because I couldn't decide which one I loved more, and I'm definitely glad I packed both!



THE ACCESSORIES
This may seem like such a small item to include in your case, but trust me - it will become your favourite. The headband was such an essential for me on our trip to Cape Verde. I feel my best when I have my hair down, but the heat and the wind made it impossible to stop my long thick hair sticking to my face. Not only is the headband a cute accessory to add to any outfit (and totally on trend this season) it also becomes your most essential and the best way to keep your hair out of your face!

How I Style The White Blouse

It's one of my all time favourite combinations - the classic white shirt and skinny jeans.

I like to switch it up between black denim and blue denim, but generally, I find a crisp white blouse unbeatable for everyday smart-casual fashion. 
In the daytime look above, I've opted for a broderie elegant blouse with puffed sleeve detail, and I have partnered it with a contrasting black outfit. The combination of the croc effect handbag and the gothic style heeled boots adds a contemporary twist on classic dressing.
