How To Wear Florals When You’re Not A Floral Dresser

For most of my teenage life I was NOT a girly girl dresser. I think all I owned was every different variation of denim possible and about 50 different t-shirts in various plain and boring colours. When I entered my twenties I did start to venture out with my clothing choices and actually bought dresses (much to my mothers happiness <3) and now I’ve been blogging for 4 years my wardrobe way more varied.

I would, however, say my outfit choices are still quite minimalistic, casual, neutral and not overly that girly. I love a good floral, but I’m not one to let it dominate my outfit unless it’s high summer. Recently I’ve found a few adorable floral tops and it gave me the idea to style one up for a not-so-floral outfit, but one that might introduce the style into your looks if you’re looking to try and slowly bring the pattern into your wardrobe.

I think if you’re looking to ‘slightly’ introduce florals into your wardrobe then small pops of it are the way to go. Floral bags, shoes, and tops are a good start. I found this blue floral wrap top on ASOS for a bargain £16 by brand Wednesdays Girl, and it was such a fab find to wear with black trousers for work (it’s now on sale!)! I do like to keep to black staple items and wear with coloured tops/accessories, and that’s what I’ve gone for here. You also can’t beat a wrap top, can you? I did have to put a vest underneath as it was a little booby, but I like the layered vibe and it’s a nice touch for spring (as are the colours in this top!).

For scared-floral-buyers, a smaller floral print is going to be an easier option, so something not too out-there and colours that aren’t too OTT will be way more comfortable to wear and style.

This outfit for me was all about nailing that transition into spring. I kept my black staple items with trousers and a blazer, but added an adorable pink tote bag. The bag is the same as my recent yellow fave that I wore in this outfit post, and it’s a bargain from Marks & Spencer. The pink is an ideal match with the pattern in the top – I love a colour match!!

I’m still wearing ankle boots because the weather is so temperamental, but at work I sometimes opt for a kitten heel and man if I had some dark-blush pink heels I’d be all over them!

What do we think?

I thought I’d put together 3 other looks which you can shop by clicking on the photos! I’ve styled them by choosing pieces around one central floral item.

Are you a floral dresser or not? If not, has this given you an idea of how to slightly incorporate it into your outfit? I love having a floral item in my outfits but can’t say I’m confident enough to be FULL floral/colour. Maybe one day! Let me know in the comments what you think!

    I’m definitely a big floral lover! Especially floral blouses. I love how you’ve styled your outfit and the example ones – the midi skirt is definitely a trend I’d like to get on board with! 🙂
