Florals are a big trend this Spring. It is a kind of flower power, magical and happy, that will make us feel beautiful and in bloom. When you wear floral prints go for clean, sleek cuts. Minimal details in the cut are keys with a floral print to look stunning. Shirt dresses, sheaths, and wrap dresses are save bets. Also blouses or shirts in a crisp button-down shirt-cut. Classic tank tops are also a good canvas. Pencil skirts, blazers, scarves, and tops are great canvas for grown-up floral prints as well. Floral coats, bags and shoes are real statement pieces.
Florals are about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance of spring. Perhaps this is why the floral trend just won’t go away. So be prepared to embrace your inner romantic with floral print pants, dresses, skirts and everything in between. Always ground your prints. This means adding accessories in one of the (main) colors of the print. Doing so is easiest when using the prints background color. However, floral prints can strike fear in any woman for being too busy, too old or just plain wrong! And before you take a stroll down the garden path, there are a few factors to think about. Which body type are you? What areas do you like to flaunt? What area do you like to hide?
It’s practically impossible for a floral print to NOT look good with a solid neutral colour. Neutrals such as black, white, grey, ivory and beige are another styling option when you don’t have to wear a lot of colours, particularly those found in the actual print. It’s also a “safe” styling method when you aren’t quite sure of what to wear, but would like to add florals to your wardrobe. If you want to take a walk on the wild side and mix print with print, one print should be smaller than the other, in the same or similar colour family. If you really want to mix it up, have some fun and mix print with like-toned or monochrome graphic prints such as spots or stripes.
