Floral prints, while always in style when warm weather approaches, are even more popular this season. From gorgeous maxi dresses to fluttery blouses, floral patterns are in bloom. Whether worn as an addition to an outfit on a purse or shoe or worn as an all over print on a dress, floral designs are making a big statement. A floral print will really bring a fresh feel to your spring and summer wardrobes.
Pregnancy is a great time to experiment with florals as you really are in full bloom with your ever changing body. Match your glow with a floral that is just right for your style and personality. Floral patterns and styles are so diverse now, you can look fresh and fashionable in the right floral style. Keep a few tips in mind when wearing a floral print and you are sure to look beautiful and feel confident!
1) Choosing the right size is always important when it comes to clothes, especially when dealing with floral prints. A simple rule to keep in mind (as Stacy and Clinton always reiterate on What Not to Wear) is to keep the size of the print in proportion with the size of your body. If you are petite, look for smaller flower sizes so that you will not look overpowered. If you are taller or have a larger build many sizes look good, but larger floral prints always look great.
2) If choosing to wear a floral print dress, top, or skirt, keep the accessories simple. An all over maxi dress looks stunning when paired with simple sandals or espadrilles. You can easily pull your favorite color from the dress and find a great necklace, bracelet, or shoe in that color. If you choose to wear a great floral top, pair it with a neutral bottom, and vice versa. By keeping the pattern only on the clothing and accessorizing with complimentary colors, a polished look is created.
3) If you are really worried about looking frumpy in florals or can’t get the kitchen curtains out of your mind, then go for the more abstract paisley patterns. This also gives a refreshing crisp look for spring while sure to be modern and a far cry from curtains or your mother’s wardrobe.
4) If wearing an all over floral print is not for you, try accessorizing with florals in a small but stylish way. A great pair of flats, a large ring in the shape of a flower, or a floral print scarf all make great additions to your favorite outfit and will really provide a stylish sense of spring.
From dainty flower necklaces to an abstract floral print skirt, there is a way to incorporate the floral style into your wardrobe. Most of all it is important that you feel comfortable in your choice of florals that match your sense of personal style. You can make florals edgy by your shoe and jewelry choice and simply by breaking it up a bit with a pair of leggings for a sleeker look. Feel confident and comfortable in your floral choice and anything you choose will look great!
