Luxe leather and vibrant florals is not a combination one would normally expect to see together, however, as a stylist I love experimenting with the juxtaposition of different styles. When it comes to styling floral, common looks include feminine and girly and perhaps even preppy- but I ask you fashionistas, can floral transcend to an edgy look?
This winter, my leather Sportsgirl leggings have been my staple piece, exploring the inner outings of Brisbane and most importantly keeping me on trend and warm! Generally, this piece becomes the statement within a minimalist ensemble, but in this look they become more of a palette to team with a warm floral pattern, adding excitement and drama to the look. At the same time, the matte leather panels in the leggings tone down the florals, giving a less feminine feel and maintaining a rockchic-esque attitude.
As a final touch, an apricot blazer is added providing a touch of neutral hue within the ensemble and doubling as a common foundation for the blacks and bright colours. Not only do I love the soft pastel colour of this blazer, but I find this shade to be a very flattering colour against fair skin. You will also notice, this colour is mirrored in the accessories, seen in my gorgeous MIANSAI rose gold anchor bracelet, fixed upon natural leather.
Bloggers, stylists and fashionistas, I would love to hear your thoughts- how do you like to juxtapose different styles?
