How to Wear Floral Dresses This Winter

Whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up or just love a floral print, you’re in luck as gone are the days where floaty floral dresses were reserved for spring and summer only. Which is why we’ve decided to round up all the best floral dresses for winter.
Not convinced you can pull off florals throughout the winter months without freezing? Here are our three tips for styling fabulous florals even when the temperature has plummeted.
1. Dress them Down
In spring a floral dress and strappy sandal might be a match made in heaven, but given the unpredictable winter weather, the two aren’t such a safe pairing at this time of the year. If you’ve grown tired of your favourite pair of winter boots, think about switching things up and dressing your winter floral dresses with a fun pair of sneakers. This pair from Gucci are our current must-haves.
2. Pop a Turtleneck Underneath
If you were a sucker for the 90s slip dress revival throughout the summer months, you don’t necessarily have to put your floral-print slip dresses into hibernation: a slick turtleneck could have been the style solution you’ve been looking for. But don’t restrict this clever styling tip for slip dresses only, turtlenecks can teamed up with various different necklines. And the best part is you won’t have to worry about wearing a scarf.
3. Invest in Trans-Seasonal Pieces
Rather spend your money on heavy wintery floral dresses that you can only wear throughout the cooler seasons, try investing in trans-seasonal floral numbers that you’ll wear once spring arrives. Look for lightweight, floaty floral dresses that can be layered up and worn with knitwear underneath and winter boots.
Take a look at our favourite floral dresses for winter in the gallery below.

Alicia Keys is launching a beauty line but not everyone is happy about it

Alicia Keys is the latest to join the growing number of celebrities with their own beauty lines. In 2021, Keys will join the likes of Rihanna, Drew Barrymore and Victoria Beckham – all who have entered the beauty world in the last few worlds.

Earlier in the week American beauty brand e.l.f Cosmetics announced that it will launch a ‘lifestyle beauty brand’ in collaboration with Keys. According to the press release announcing the collaboration, the company said that the partnership would allow Keys to ‘further explore conversations about inner beauty, wellness and connection.’

While many fans of Alicia Keys are excited about the upcoming collaboration, others are confused about the annoucment and are questioning her decision to venture into the beauty industry.

Over the years Keys has been praised for her barely there approach to make-up and in 2019 when she hosted the Grammys the musician went completely make-up free for the event.

It wasn’t the first time that Keys went make-up free – she’s also graced the covers of magazines and her own album sans make-up.

Keys has been vocal about her approach to beauty and a few years ago penned a piece for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter blog explaining her decision to introduce her #nomakeup movement. “I don’t want to cover up anymore,” Keys wrote. “Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”

While some fans might be questioning Keys’ decision, her tweet announcing the collaboration seems to imply that the collaboration might focus on skincare rather than make-up.

Other than the fact that the range will be dermatologist-devloped and cruelty free, fans will have to watch this space as very little is known about what the Alicia Keys x e.l.f. cosmetcs line-up might look like.
