Spring is definitely the time for floral dresses. I think it has something to do with the blossoming nature around us. It inspires us to blossom stylistically too!

However, the usual ladylike duo “floral dress – high heels” can feel a little tired sometimes, don’t you agree? Moreover, in some cases, as in the case of this Mango dress I’m wearing, the dress in question can be a little too flimsy to wear on its own. This one for instance, was sold as a dress on Mango, but feels more like a kimono, as the only thing that keeps it closed in the front is fabric belt. Not exactly the best thing to wear on it own on a windy day!

So how to get round this issue? The dress is simply too gorgeous to wear only when the weather is just right. The solution is quite straightforward: combine it with a comfy pair of skinny jeans. This way, the outfit gets more interesting on one hand and on the other, it’s all-weather proof! It can get as windy as it likes, no worries, I’ve got you covered.

The trick to make any such combination look chic is to maintain the balance, as you would do with makeup. If the dress is the star of the show, then keep the trousers muted. If the top is voluminous, then the trousers should be skinny and vice versa. It’s all about balance. Then you can wear practically anything.
