Florals are a feminine favorite associated with spring and summer collections but with the right styling tricks, you can make garden prints work throughout the rest of winter and transition easily into spring.

Incorporate this bouquet of styling tips to rethink your seasonal pattern rules:


For a hint of floral femininity, accent your look with posy-patterned accessories like tights, belts or jewelry.  Dainty floral accessories can accentuate almost any outfit.

Basic black pieces are the perfect background to update a floral look.  The dark palette in a great pair of trendy jeans is weather appropriate and the pop of color is welcome in the winter months.

Less is more. You may be dreaming of spring but be sure to wear only one floral piece at a time.  If you’ve picked more than one pattern, separate them with a neutral piece.

Add some edge to your girly get-up with leather or studded accents that create chic, rocker-girl contrast.

Elements such as texture and varied fabric weight work with florals on many levels. A chunky knit or smooth ponte adds interesting contrast and puts a fresh spin on summery print.
