Just because spring is around the corner doesn't necessarily mean the weather is any less wintery!
And, when it's bitter cold out, it's a little hard to find the motivation to put on any outfit with more than two colors. And when I say two colors, I'm talking about black and darker black.
One of the best ways to incorporate some color and pattern into your early spring wardrobe is to wear a floral dress - layered for warmth, of course. Take a peak below for some winter floral inspiration to keep your outfit - and mood - in high spirits!
Pair Floral Dresses With Leather
Option A is to pair your favorite floral dress with tights and slip on a leather jacket. The combination of floral patterns and sleek leather will give you a feminine, yet edgy look for serious outfit goals. One tip for pulling off winter florals is to focus on finding a dress with darker colors - and that doesn't mean it has to be black! Burgundy, deep green, navy blue, charcoal gray, and purple are always good go-to colors for the colder seasons.
If you're going for a dark outfit, there are other ways to add in some color. Add a pop of cherry red lipstick or nail polish, or tote around a bright colored bag.
Add Warmth With Layers
If you're opting to save some cash so you don't have to buy a completely new outfit, try layering a floral slip dress that's already in your closet over a form-fitting long sleeve tee. You can keep this outfit simple by wearing a solid color tee shirt underneath your dress, or go for a more eclectic style by mixing shirt patterns like stripes or polka dots. Keep your look on trend by adding a simple choker necklace and a pair of oversized sunglasses. Your street cred has just been boosted, you're welcome.
Keep it Bright
For an outfit that pops, don't be afraid to wear a floral dress with bright colors! You can keep your outfit toned down by wearing a knee-length peacoat over your dress, and by adding a neutral colored belt around your waist to accentuate your shape. For colder temperatures, make sure to wear your best pair of fleece-lined tights and booties to complete your look!

For a look I'd like to call "Audrey Hepburn With A Twist", sport a floral midi dress paired with a bomber jacket. This outfit is all about the accessories, so play around with jewelry, sunglasses, shoes, and bags to customize your look. Add cateye sunglasses and a pearl necklace (or faux pearl - ain't nobody got time for that) for a modern twist on classic accessories.
