Spring is on the way, but we are already going crazy for floral prints. A floral print is a statement, whether it be a dress, pants or heels. The floral print is totally chic and ladylike and can add a feminine touch to an outfit.
We love to mix a floral print with a different texture, such as leather, lace or denim. This adds depth and difference to an outfit and can stop you looking too much like your grandma. Add a floral print button up shirt with a sweater or black, leather pants to tone down the femininity of an outfit. A leather crop with floral pants or a floral skirt also packs a punch, especially if the florals are bright colours. Adding some denim, such as a jacket or shirt to your florals will also give your outfit a tom-boyish undertone.
If you are going for a full-on feminine outfit that screams classic, try adding nude heels to elongate the legs and a beige bag for classic chic. White shoes and accessories also play up florals. Why not try a floral blazer over a colour-block dress or vice versa for a fun, colourful outfit. There is always an opportunity to pattern clash and floral works especially well with stripes. The type of floral also depends on your taste – whether you want bright graphic print florals, small, dainty florals or a birds of paradise look, it’s all up to you.
There is so much room to move on the floral print trend and you can adapt your style into this. Pairing floral pieces with black or colour-block items works very well and will stop you looking over the top. If you’re not too keen on wearing floral clothing, opt for floral shoes and a clutch for a cute play on the trend. Floral prints are very fun, flirty and feminine, so don’t forget to keep your makeup simple and chic or try a colour pop lipstick.
