Being a tireless devotee of the all black outfit means one can afford to play around with layers, 
textures, prints and detailing without fear of overdoing anything. 

In this case, I decided to experiment with this traditionally feminine top by Karen Millen to see 
how it would fit with my characteristically oversized and commonly androgynous style, and I 
have to say it was a pretty easy transition. With its sheer textured florals and adjustable shoulder 
detailing the design is quite deceptively edgy, and paired with some belted man-style pants and 
croc-embossed loafers any overt prettiness is easily played down. 

So the lesson? Don't be afraid to experiment with a key floral or equally pretty piece if your style 
is minimally-inclined, as it can be a great way to mix up your monochromatic routine and add a 
little interest to your standard silhouettes. It's also the perfect way to transition between seasons 
and keep those favourite summer pieces on rotation well into fall for the northerners, or conversely 
helping us southerners to get into spring as early as possible. 

In short, just give those florals a go - you may be pleasantly surprised at just how cool they can be.
