The red floral dress

If there is one print I don’t wear too often, it’s the floral one. That’s why getting the red floral dress that I’m wearing today is a surprising choice coming from me. As it’s a print that can make anyone look a bit “childish” I will always look for very specific ones. I love when a floral print has a very detailed and “dainty” look, like on this dress that I wore a little while ago. But every once in awhile, I will get out of my sartorial comfort zone and try something a bit out of character. This time was a great experience as I didn’t regret my choice of floral print one bit!

To style this dress, the best thing to do, if you’ve similar tastes to mine, is to go for bold accessories and materials and neutral colours. That’s why I picked my favourite bucket bag. This bag has a shiny look, thanks to the leather quality (I believe it’s veg tan but don’t quote me on that…), it helps to contrast with the dress. It also tone down the “cute” look of the daisies on the dress. I also put on pointy sling back flats to make the silhouette more interesting.

What’s your take on that style of prints?

Dress: The Kooples/ Bucket bag: Mango/ Sling back flats: Marks & Spencer/ Golden hoops: Mango

    I love ❤️ when anyone steps outside their comfort zone and chooses
    something that challenges them . The red dress with the dainty flowers is the
    first step towards possibly bolder floral patterns.I like this dress and you styled
    It well . Baby steps who knows when you don a bold floral.

    Such a gorgeous, modern take on floral. Those shoes are so cool with the pointed toe and ring detailing and I love a good bucket bag.
    Have a Stylin’ Day!

    Beautiful dress Aria. I think we owe it to ourselves to try new things on us. The worst that can happen is you don’t like it and then you just don’t have to wear it again. I think this totally works on you and I’d love to see it with a fluffy bow at the collar.

    I adore how the dress is a floral print yet its not too girly!

    I like your pairing of black shoes and accessories with a red dress, i believe you did the same previously too!

    Love it 🙂
