Spring Wardrobe Staples with Le Château - Part 2








Kimono: Le Château | Top: Le Château | Pants: Garage similar | Mules: Le Château | Bag: Le Château | Choker: Le Château | Sunglasses: Le Château 

...

Yes you've guessed it. Florals are my next Spring Wardrobe Staple (groundbreaking) and today I'll be sharing some atypical ways to style them!

1. Choose a floral kimono. Rather than the conventional floral dress, choose a floral Kimono to drape over your outfit for a relaxed, yet put together look.

2. Play with textures and dimensions. While floral patterns can be quite busy on their own, this shouldn't prevent you from pairing them with different fabrics (like this silk tank pictured above) or silhouettes (like ruffles). Rather than playing it safe, choose a fabric or shape with some fun and flare!

3. Wear florals with black. Your immediate instinct may be to choose colours for Spring and Summer, floral prints on a black background look classy and chic. Just check out Vogue's Spring/ Summer 2017 recap on floral dressing and soak up all the floral on black awesomeness that hit the runway for this year!

4. Go for subtle bold details. Is that an oxymoron? What I mean is be bold in a small way. Choose sunglasses with a fun coloured tint or a bag with striking details rather that bold pants to compete with your bold floral print. Make sense?

5. Don't forget the shoes. Your fun floral print may be catching most of the views, don't neglect the shoes. Try a simple open-toe mule to complete your anything but basic floral ensemble!

How do you like to wear florals for Spring?

Stay tuned for Part 3 coming live to the blog on Wednesday!

  1. Hahah groundbreaking indeed...but ever so lovely though! Have been noticing the floral/black combination too and wrote about it today as well for fall. I like the contrast though, black is so intense whilst flowers are more soft. And yes to that kimono, adore it! Xx

  15. When I was your age, I'd never wear florals because I thought they were too girly!! I'm so glad I'm over that now. And it just goes to show how smart you are! Because they rock!

  16. I always pair florals with black it's so unexpected! I usually go for florals with dark backgrounds anyway so it's easier to get this effect so this shirt is perfect. I'm totally going to try out the kimono style stop.

    I get the groundbreaking thing - but there's something so nice about wearing florals in the sunshine!

    I love the nude shoes, such a perfect complement.

  18. Oh I love that kimono! My floral kimonos are my most worn pieces for sure, they are a great piece for warmer weather. I like your ruffle cami too, I have a very similar piece somewhere, I'm going to have to look it out now as our summer heatwaves are continuing!

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

  39. I adore that floral kimono, it's so pretty and certainly chic! I love the way you've styled it with the silk cami, black denim, and those pretty mules! I also love your tips on wearing florals into spring. Though it may be common practice to reach for or think of florals come spring, sometimes it's not as easy or instinctual when it comes to styling them! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great day so far!
