Right after the holiday season comes to a close, the cold weather months ahead can seem like a long road. To make things a little more bearable, try switching up your go-to neutrals and solids with little splashes of floral. Look for prints in slightly weightier fabrics and deeper tones to keep them looking appropriate for the season. Now is also a great time to score some prints on sale since stores are changing over from earlier deliveries.
For resort collections, florals ranged from the bold black-and-white pattern at Erdem to a more tropical palms vibe at Marni all the way to the moody buds at Rochas. Prints crafted in seasonless color ways are your best bet as you'll be able to get the most wear out of them by simply switching up your accessories and layering pieces. If you are going to buy separates, pick up a top and bottom stamped with the same print, that way you can wear them as a set or split them up to create new looks.
