Feel-Good Florals: How to Style Prints
Consider this your guide on how to introduce colourful prints into your activewear rotation, the Liberty wayBy: Maddi John
An instant mood-booster, feel-good florals are a wardrobe staple, season after season. But perhaps the most joyful of them all is Liberty’s latest launch of printed activewear; smile-inducing pieces made for moving, whether you’re gyming to the max or setting off on a casual hot girl walk. But knowing how to style such playful prints can put your coordination skills to the test. You could go all out, wearing head to toe in the same print. Or you could choose one piece as your focal point, and build an outfit around it, preferably with hints of coordinating or complementary tones. Here’s how…
The Morning Show
Liberty Alpine Leggings, £95
Whether you’re setting off early for a morning walk or heading to your local cafe for a pick-me-up, trust a pair of vibrant leggings to get you there. And before you start reaching for that classic black pair hidden in your wardrobe, you must not have heard, green is the new black this season, and these Liberty Alpine Leggings do not disappoint. Pair with subtle accents of green, like the sought-after Barbour x Ganni Liddesdale Reversible Quilted Jacket. And right now, it’d be remiss to head outside without a few winter warmers; monochrome accessories like the Acne Studios Short Rib Logo Socks and Ganni’s Ribber Knit Beanie Hat will go very nicely.
Liberty Print With Purpose Betsy Recycled Zip Crossbody Bag, £195
As a prominent 90s trend that has stuck around, athleisure is all over Pinterest right now, a stylish take on comfort-dressing that we can all get on board with in the winter months. To achieve the aesthetic yourself, you’ll want a timeless trench in a neutral colourway, like Moncler’s Tourgeville Trench Coat, £920, to allow the vibrant Liberty Print Betsy Crossbody Bag to take centre stage. As for a warm layer, opt for something in a complementary colorway, like the Acne Studios Stamp Logo Boxy Sweatshirt, £270. Top it off with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses (yes, sunglasses are definitely acceptable in winter) and you’ll be good to go.
Take It for a Spin (Class)
Liberty Betsy Crop Top, £65
We know what you’re thinking, but hear us out. If you’re an avid gym-goer, this Liberty Betsy Crop Top is the perfect thing to wear while you’re working up a sweat inside, but with a few extra layers on top, you can make it just as suitable for outside dressing, too. Pair with the matching high-waisted Liberty Betsy leggings, £95, for a coordinated look, and layer with an easy pullover, like the Acne Studios Stamp Logo Boxy Sweatshirt, £270. Before you go, don’t forget a classic neutral cap, like Isabel Marant’s Tyron Baseball Cap, £120, just the thin for disguising those post-exercise roots.
Strolling in the Rain
Liberty Thorpe Printed Running Jacket, £115
Perfect for temperamental weather, the Liberty Thorpe Running Jacket allows you to ward off the rain without forgoing your usual style credentials. To complement this purple print, lean towards the ‘cool’ side of the colour wheel with a classic pair of blue denim like Levis Red Tab 70s High Slim Straight Jeans, £70/a>, topped with a cosy tonal layer, like the Loewe Bi-Colour Wool-Blend Scarf, £225.
Back to Work
Liberty Print With Purpose Alpine Recycled Tote Bag, £235
Monday mornings are never fun, but having a new workwear outfit can make it that little bit easier to climb out of bed. Sure, the Liberty Alpine tote, £235, can’t completely change your mindset, but it’ll definitely help boost your mood with its fun print and bold green colour. Pair it with a neutral colour-block ensemble, like these Pleats Please Issey Miyake Monthly Colours September Pleated Straight Trouser, £255, and Matching Cardigan, £295, throw your laptop in the Liberty Print With Purpose Alpine Recycled Laptop Case, £125, and head on in to the office.
