It can be very difficult to find an outfit that’s both chic and weather-permitting for the dismal Irish days. Instead of having the luxury of wearing whatever we want, its essential to purchase things that can be seen as both fashionable and warm, a feat drastically underestimated!
When it’s windy, the Fashionistas of Limerick tend to hide and the hoodies and tracksuit bottoms come out in their place. But one braved the elements to dazzle in this floral ensemble that certainly brightened up my wintry day. Floral print is any woman’s secret weapon for the winter; it’s almost like the clothing version of the proverbial rose-tinted glasses.
Teaming a simple black double breasted jacket with a short floral skirt, she’s created the definitive ‘pretty’ outfit to get through the cold months. With that combination, mixing it with the flat tan ankle boots and black tights to keep her pins warm was a stroke of genius and the clashing prints on the scarf, skirt and bag, instead of creating an eyesore, complement each other in an truly unusual way.
Taking an outfit inspiration like this and making it your own is so simple and can instantly brighten up a look. Penneys is the go-to store for girls that want a quick and easy way to accessorise an outfit to make it sparkle but places like A|Wear, River Island and even thrift stores are brilliant for bulking up the assets of your wardrobe and spending a little extra on accessories that will keep your wardrobe looking classic for years is always a smart investment.
If you have a bit of money to spend, it’s a nice change to treat yourself to something slightly more kitsch and en vogue like Cath Kidson accessories that always make an outfit pop! Don’t forget its not just florals that can have this effect on your wardrobe, polka dots, leopard print and stripes are also a welcome addition to the dull, grey days of our long winter.
