8 Styling Tips To Steal From Florence Welch

Florence Welch is the ethereal goddess we all want to be! And if you follow these styling tips from Flo, you'll see how you can be just as ethereal as she!

Florence Welch is a full-time witch, forest nymph, climate change activist and frontwoman to ‘Florence + the Machine’. And her fashion certainly lives up to this reputation.

Florence has one of the most criminally underrated senses of style in our modern era – but we’re here to prove she’s got the styling tips and tricks that’ll have us all looking like wild women who run barefoot through the forest.

1. Nightgowns Are For The Daytime Too

Florence’s sense of style is about boho lux, with a hint of chaos – and she’s not afraid to let it show.

She spends so much of her time on stage that of course some her most iconic looks are going to pulled from her performances. And the nightgown isn’t just for nanas in Florence’s world.

She has resurrected the frumpy, old-woman aesthetic and made it glamorous. Silk pyjamas and sheer lace over the top solidify the nightgown (or any pyjamas, really) as a closet must-have. Silk and satin shorts will always be classy, and lace doesn’t have to smell of an op-shop bargain buy.

Plus, who doesn’t want to live life barefoot and carefree?

2. Vintage Is Hip Again

Or hippy – since that’s kinda her whole gig.

If we’re taking styling tips from Florence Welch, then we have to comment on sustainability. From air pollution to fast fashion, Florence’s sense of style is about toppling the establishment. It’s time for us to become hardcore recyclers in all things.

Vintage clothes are a great way to recycle old clothes, and find hidden gems. Plus, fashion trends are proving to be cyclical, meaning that what was once old and trashy is now treasured.

Shop around for designer bargains! You bet Florence does!

3. Flower Crowns Might Wilt, But Never Die

The flower crown as a fashion accessory lived a brief moment in the spotlight – and mainly in the festival world.

Florence is here to prove that nature isn’t so separate from fashion, and that flower crowns don’t have to be just a trend. There’s something intrinsically beautiful about them, and they definitely add an extra something to the classic headband.

We all need to think more about where fashion and the environment connect, and flower crowns embrace both sides of this. Plus, they’re fun – and people who say otherwise probably think that the Kardashian’s monotone outfits are the epitome of fashion.

4. Formal Dresses Don’t Have To Be For Special Occasions

Duh!

Although some of us probably embrace this rule already, not many of us are bold enough to go there. But take a few notes from Flo, and you’ll see that you can wear maxi dresses whenever you want.

The idea of clothes being reserved for a once-off is uneconomic for us without bottomless pockets. That, and it’s more sustainable to wear things more than once. Florence shows us the versatility of beautiful clothes, which can be dressed up with heels, or down with boots.

Just because it’s a satin dress doesn’t mean you can’t wear it to the bookstore!

5. Lace Ain’t Frumpy, You’re Just Wearing It Wrong

EvenĀ I shy away from lace – no one wants to look like a ninety-year-old woman going to church on Sunday.

But Flo had proved that lace doesn’t have to be matronly. Aside from lacey nightgowns, she also embraces the vintage aesthetic of lace dresses, and how downright sexy it can be when you wear it right.

A little lace on the sleeves, the shoulders, or the ruffles on a skirt can add delicacy – and we’re all about embracing that Gothic fairy in us all.

6. Milkmaids Are Back In Style

Long skirts with dropped hems, ruffles on the end, and lace-ups on the shirts – yes, we’re here to milk some cows, and of course, we’re going to look good doing it!

Florence has a love of loose-fitting clothes and long skirts that defies the bodycon clothes we see everywhere these days. She’s proving to us all that we can look like goddesses without buying into the lie that fashion is selling us – you don’t have to be on the verge of a nip-slip to look bangin’.

7. Tattoos Aren’t Taboo

Florence Welch wears her tattoos like jewellery, and we totally f with it. It’s about time that the stigma around tatts was killed off.

Having tattoos doesn’t make you look dirty, doesn’t mean you look less feminine, and certainly doesn’t have anything to do with your personal character.

We all know that Florence Welch is one of the most giving people out there, and if she can have both tattoos and a soft heart, so can we.

8. Embroider Everything

Clothes don’t have to be one-note any longer. If you want to wear a piece of art, do it!

Florence’s sense of style is, above all else, about self-expression and freedom. If you want to communicate visually, then there is no more direct method that stitching on a ‘flower power’ badge to the back of your denim jacket.

Embroidery adds dimension, intrigue, and it’s just plain gorgeous. And we may as well wear clothes that are as beautiful as we are.
