Now because of the stark contracts the brand plays with I didn't want to just style this stunning floral dress as a sweet girly number. I was looking for something more. Then I thought, you know what, why do floral dresses (especially those with ribbons) always imply that the girl is all innocent and lovely. So I threw on a pair of sharply cut black ankle boots, a black faux leather jacket and a black utility handbag. The dress itself is still very girly - with a mandarin collar. a petersham belt and an almost circular flowy skirt, but the contract with black leather gives it a rougher edge.
