Last week on the blog I donned one of my favorite fall staples, my embroidered pink coat. To keep with the theme of “Ode to the Holidays,” I thought for the upcoming Christmas season I’d celebrate with some sparkle!
While we all love our florals, sometimes they can seem overdone, or not-so-season-appropriate. Any fashion fiend is familiar with Miranda Priestly’s sarcastic comment from The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” And she’s right, it’s been overdone. But completely abandoning a portion of your patterned basics can take a toll on your overall wardrobe. Make the most of what’s already in your closet by incorporating your favorite flowery frocks this autumn – just understand how to style them correctly.
The military-inspired trend came ’round a few seasons ago, but it has yet to leave. And I’m not complaining! With a few classic pieces in my closet already — army green and camouflage, boxy silhouettes and shoulder pads, black with gold details, etc. — I decided it was time for a more feminine upgrade.
