How to: Make florals less girly


Florals have been on trend for a while, but not all of us want to look like we stepped out of a soft meadow from the 50's. Yes, flowers in their essence are pretty and delicate, but with the right styling, you can strike a balance between vintage charm and modern edge.

Starting off with a super feminine floral top as an example for your base, the key is to contrast textures. Try pairing the top with some leather or distressed denim shorts from H&M. Instead of subtle accessories, try some chunkier jewelry, like stacked bracelets or a bold metal necklace. Finally, tie together the look with an ankle boot. I usually opt for classic black, but I'd even try mixing florals with this floral Dr Marten boot found at Union Jack Boots that is pretty much the epitome of edgy and pretty.
