Floral will always be trending for spring but that doesn’t mean they can’t transition into fall or be worn in fresh, creative ways. Here are four ways to incorporate floral prints into a wardrobe without looking like a bouquet.
1- Let Floral be the Focal Point
Floral prints have such a busy pattern that the rest of the ensemble should be understated and complementary. Pairing a floral dress with a matching toned jacket and metallic heels is a great way to have a flirty outfit that is also sophisticated.
2- Match Accessories
A great way to make an outfit look cohesive is to match the accessory to the outfit. Whether adding a fun floral neck scarf to add a pop of color or making the multi-patterned outfit cohesive with a matching purse, floral is much better received if it fits within a larger scheme.
3- Wear The Proper Material and Cut
The eye-catching pattern of floral can become overwhelming. Making sure the piece is well fitted and structured will ensure you don’t drown in flowers! Also wearing the right material makes floral shine: chiffon is the perfect material because of its romantic look and fantastic movement.
4- Mix Sizes and Patterns within the Same Color Scheme
It’s ok to take risks when wearing floral! Fashion stays current by pushing boundaries. Temper the frenetic look of two patterns at once by wearing a complementary color scheme or by breaking up the pattern with two different sized prints.
