How To Make Spring Dresses Look ‘Fashion’

How To Make Spring Dresses Look ‘Fashion’

Pretty, floral midis are the ultimate spring essential, but if you tend to find them a bit too girlie, here are three ways fashionistas would wear them.

Look 1

We call this the ‘Marant effect’. Turn to the French designer for a masterclass in how to make anything look cooler – a chunky cream sweatshirt and Western-inspired belt and boots usually do the trick. Think RHW meets Paris’ most stylish editors and go for tonal accessories and layers for that nonchalant, just-threw-this-on vibe.

Look 2

The key to making anything look a bit more ‘fashion’ is to throw in some exaggerated proportions. A belted jacket teamed with a midi dress creates the perfect hourglass shape – look for tough details like pockets and statement shoulders for that Christina Centenera silhouette. Black and gold details also add an extra touch of cool.

Look 3

A relaxed feel can also be the key to looking cool in a floral midi. Think mannish blazers and chunky footwear, or statement sunnies, gold hoops and a top handle bag to make everything feel more on trend.
