Remember when we talked about wanting to toughen up those fragile floral printed dresses with a solid winter coat when it was -15 degrees? Well, it’s six months later and finally time to shed the layers and bare all… or perhaps just the toes.
In the spirit of not wanting to look like a walking bed sheet around town, here are a few pointers to wearing a full length-to-the-floor floral dress in the coming months:
1. Break it up! Add something solid to the look – like a cool black silk scarf.
2. Unless the bohemian lifestyle really resonates with you (as in, you constantly find yourself island hopping and with no permanent address) – maybe stray away from the gladiator sandal and flower crown adorned head.
3. In lieu of the open-toe heel, a sandal like the Birkenstock, or a sneaker like the Converse are perfect collaborators and shouldn’t be overlooked.
4. Less IS more when it comes to wearing a head-to-toe print – maybe stay away from the wild mane and go for a sleeker hairstyle, and maybe, just maybe, only do a lip?
5. Forget all of the above because who cares and YOLO – you just gotta be yourself right?
To help you with the floral frenzy you must be in – here are some fabulous frocks to pursue…
Here’s to the weekend !
Summer is always about lightness and flowers…depends on where we are city ,beach,or country..the print will get adapted
to the temperature and around us…it’s a beautiful dress …but right now with this too hot climate the only thing that really works is simple cotton…
Advice number 5 is the one to always have in mind :)
I was waiting to see the Gucci influence ( or invasion ) on this blog and was counting the days.
Love this floral print, it’s not too girly or “typical”!
I love this blog! But several days ago, the feed inFeedly switched my content for your blog from English to French and no amount of deleting and adding it again has helped. I thought you folks should know!
A couple of days ago we made the domain switch to http://www.garancedore.com, which may be the cause of this issue you’re having! If you’re able to update the URL in your feed, that should solve it. Hope this helps! x Natalie
Florals forever, whenever!
Year-round, florals lift the spirit, whether as dark, rich patterns in winter, or lighter florals like this one above. I also adore prints, particularly florals, for their ability to withstand not being washed every single wear, since the patterns hide all kinds of food spatter and disguise creases really well.
I’ve just bought a whole lot of inexpensive Liberty voile-weight cotton to sew into full-length, shape-skimming shifts for summer… And because the prints are so irresistibly cheerful, I’m now wearing them in winter over a long silk slip, woollen leggings and thin crew-neck sweaters for warmth.
j’adore les imprimés fleuris! euh… en fait ça dépend des fleurs…
