Why You Should Wear Florals in Fall

I’m all about creating a closet that really works for you. Every time I buy a new piece, I make myself imagine 3 different ways I’d wear that item, so I know I’m not wasting my time or money. My Mum drilled that advice into me since I was a kid – and it really helps when you shop!

And so, when it comes to switching seasons, there’s no reason to overhaul your entire wardrobe, just because the weather changes. One of the brightest, most feminine prints associated with Summer dressing, is florals. And it’s actually one of my faves to rock for Fall. Here’s how: Choose a floral item in a stiffer, more luxurious fabric than, say, flimsy cotton or delicate silk. Ted Baker’s new over-the-knee pencil skirt is on point. The length is ladylike with heels, creating a sexy silhouette, perfect for the office or chic lunch. If you think you don’t have long enough legs for an over-the-knee skirt, think again. If you try one that’s slightly higher at the waist (like this one) it’ll make you look taller, and leaner – I promise!

I paired this standout skirt with a simple silk blouse (check out the pocket and shiny gold buttons though – for me, something’s always got to have that extra chic detail), and black accessories. Normally I wouldn’t team a bright print with black, but the dark ponyhair bag, strappy sandals and floppy hat ground the bright florals, giving them a more Wintery, urban feel. What I love about this look is I could (and will, with a quick change!) totally transform the vibe into laid-back evening. Swapping the shirt for a spaghetti strap cami or thin cotton tank, adding a glossy nude lip, and switching the shoulder bag for a brighter clutch. The killer heels can stay… they’re perfect for any occasion!

When it comes to Fall dressing, think outside the box: go for vibrant prints, ladylike silhouettes and killer accessories. Have fun with your look.

  • One of my biggest saving graces during pregnancy and these first few months with Honor, has been having a solid group of mummy friends to talk to. Things can get lonely, even when you're surrounded by people. Which sounds silly but am I right?! It's so important to have someone who's going through (or gone through) what you are, to share your worries with, go to for advice, or just plain vent to. I was so happy to find the @peanut app, which is a social network for meeting like-minded mummies in your area. I've been using their Pages feature to get advice on everything from going back to work, post-natal fitness, and weaning Honor onto foods. I've had some amazing tips from other mums - I wish their new 'Pregnancy' page had been around when I was pregnant! If you're pregnant, or a new mummy, get on @peanut and share your tips with me! #peanutapp
