Floral prints are a vintage-inspired trend that has been popular for decades and is perfect for the ultimate girly appeal. From tiny and large floral prints to garden-themed accessories, blossoms adorn spring fashion. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, why not show off this fun and flirty trend?
Here are a few tips on how to pull off this garden fresh style:
1. Do Not Overdo It: To avoid an overabundance of floral prints, try pairing something floral with a solid-colored item from your closet. This can be done with a floral top, such as the Collective Concepts Hothouse Floral Top and a neutral skirt. The Layers of Love Floral Dress provides neutral tones for those who want to add minimal floral prints to their look. A personal floral favorite is the Fairest Flower Floral Top because of the simple and light floral appeal it adds to any outfit.
2. Make A Statement: Dresses are ideal for floral prints because of the impact they create from head-to-toe. Maxi dresses are perfect for this bold statement and my ultimate favorite is the I Vinca Love You Floral Maxi Dress. For a shorter dress that also makes a big statement try the How Do You Lilac That! Floral Dress.
3. Choose A Size: It is very important to flatter your body type when choosing a floral print for yourself. If you are taller and curvier, avoid smaller flowers so your curves don’t get lost. A great option for women is the O’neill Coachella Beauty Bandeau Dress. While if you are petite, stay away from bigger floral prints so your body does not appear to be larger than it really is. A great top with a smaller floral print is the Perennial Pompom Floral Tank Top.
4. Accessorize Appropriately: For those who are hesitant about wearing floral prints, try accessorizing with floral accents such as a simple scarf. The Spanish Dancer Floral Black Scarf is perfect for adding some girly appeal to your spring wardrobe. Also, pastels are adorable when paired with floral prints and the Sweet Shortcake Pink Handbag is perfect to neutralize your garden-friendly look.
So go ahead and start adding some fresh floral-themed items to your wardrobe in order to attain the ultimate girly look. What are your favorite botanical-themed prints?
