How To: To achieve her look pair a fun floral dress, like this one from Forever21, with black tights, and if you’re feeling daring, pair the dress with a fun pair of patterned tights for a little extra flair. Top it off with this purple coat from dELiA*s, and add an infinity scarf to keep extra warm. And don’t forget to add a little edge to your outfit with a pair of lace up boots. Another great thing about this outfit is that it’s simple enough to easily translate from day to night. Just trade those boots for this pair of ALDO heels, swipe on some red lipstick and add a moto jacket for some edge.
