Your Ultimate Guide on How to Wear Embroidered Boots and Floral Shoes

Beat the crowds at Columbia Road flower market on a Sunday and get your florals from us on next day delivery. Floral print shoes are taking Instagram – and our shoe-drobe – by storm. It’s no surprise everyone’s obsessed, as these are the kinda flowers that won’t die if you forget about them for a few weeks: RIP succulents.

We’ve looked to our bloggin’ baes to find out how to wear embroidered boots the sassy way. Get ready for slayin’ shoe-drobe ‘spo.

Be Red-dy

Who said clashing wasn’t a good thing? We love the mix of pink and red tones in this autumnal outfit. Rosa ticks off all this season’s major trends like a pro: statement sleeves, bordeaux shades and floral boots.

Due to the length of these ankle boots, they’ll fit perfectly with both mini skirts – as seen here – and trousers. If you’re not quite ready to brave floral ankle boots with bare legs, these will look just as perfect with tights.

Boots with the Fur

Just in case you didn’t get the memo: it’s cold. Not that we’ve ever intended to let that stop us slayin’. Whatever the weather, we’re planning to style up our new shoes, and these floral boots are no exception. On this pair, a beaut gold and pink cherry blossom print sits on a black base, meaning this pattern is super wearable.

If you’re wondering how to wear embroidered boots in winter, then take a leaf from Andreea’s book and style them with blue denim, a white shirt and a faux fur jacket. It’s a look that’s chic in the office, but still earns your major style points when you step outside.

One Stylish Step

We think of this as the smart girl’s guide for desk to drinks outfits. Look like a total pro in the boardroom, proving your fashion credentials in a pair of floral boots, but step things up a notch as you slay out of office.

Don’t worry about colour clash: as Hana features plenty of shades, there are loads of opportunities to get lit in brights. Make a statement in a colour pop jumper, and go for an oversized fit for a ‘woke up like this’ level of slay.

Street Stylin’

If you’re wondering how to wear floral boots when you’re starting with brunch and crashing after dusk, then Emily’s the sort of gal to look to for all day and all night style ‘spo. We’re obsessed with her London fashion blog, and obvs she’s killing the game when it comes to styling her floral print shoes.

To tone down the statement floral boots, pair your ankle boots with simple cropped jeans and a utility fit jacket. This is the sort of look that’ll look just as killer when you’re ‘gramming your avo toast as it will when sipping mojitos in Shoreditch.

Wherefore Art Thou Romeo

This is a story of shoe love. The moment Romeo dropped on site, we had bloggers and PD Baes worldwide wanting a pair for their own shoe-drobes and it sold out quicker than any Shakespearean tragedy. Good news: Romeo is back.

Wondering how to wear embroidered boots with red detailing? Make like Saar: take the accent colour and run with it, whilst obvs incorporating a pair of fishnet tights.

Floral Refresh

Florals for spring? Totally groundbreaking. These floral boots are the dream pair for anyone who wants to tick loads of trends in one go, as they feature beaut perspex heel detail.

As these are a statement shoe, we’d recommend keeping the rest of your outfit minimal. Rita Magari is #ootd kween, so take after her lead and rely on your trusty black skinny jeans and a faux fur jacket to kill it.

Thanks a Bunch

Now, these are the sort of flowers we want delivered to work. Nicole’s got us eyeing up (another) pair of embroidered boots, and we won’t be sorry when these ones make it into our shoe-drobe.

Take note of the pink accents in this floral pattern and highlight it with a jacket in the matching shade. Like the shoes, stick to a black base to make sure you look pulled together – even if you got ready in five mins.

Flower Power

We all know that Alicia Roddy is shoe-drobe goals, so it’s no surprise we’re after the floral shoes she’s just added to her collection. Make like this slayin’ instagrammer and take one pair of floral boots to up your fashion game this season.

In contrast to her floral print shoes, Alicia’s gone for a simple outfit. No one said fashion couldn’t be cosy, and we’re in love with this super cute but simple steeze that she nails every time.

Phresh as a Daisy

If you wanna freshen up your shoe-drobe, then flowers are the only way to go. We love the burst of red in an all black errthing outfit, meaning that the embroidered boots get all the attention they deserve.

Make like Kayde and go for floral embroidered accents throughout your outfit. Embroidered bomber jackets are still a key trend for SS17, so play matchy matchy to make sure your entire outfit’s flames.

Flower Girl

This is how to wear embroidered boots the slay way. Satin bomber jacket? Got it. Band tee? Phresh from the wardrobe. Greenery? Nailed. Floral boots? Obviously. Basically, this outfit has it all.

As Pantone colour of the year, work greenery into your daily ootd to prove you’re ahead of the trend. It will instantly freshen up any outfit, and we love how it looks paired with floral prints too.
