How to Style Floral Prints
Florals are great and delicate and have a way of bringing out the femininity of a lady. That’s why we highly recommend that you invest in a few of such pieces. However, there are a good number of women that shy away from floral prints. Understandably because the flowers on them can be loud and can sometimes appear childish. However, with just a few tips, you can rock your floral pieces flawlessly.
Below are simple ideas on how to style your floral prints.
Go the minimalist way
Sure you’ve heard countless times that less is more and we’re saying it again because it is also applicable when it comes to wearing florals. The key to looking chic in a floral piece is maintaining balance. As mentioned, a floral piece especially if it falls under the one-piece category will always make a bold statement. A good example is the cold-shoulder floral maxi below. You will surely turn heads when you wear it but remember the heads need to turn for the right reasons. As such, keep your accessories such as bags, footwear and jewellery simple.
Be careful with the print size
If you are curvier then no doubt a piece with larger flowers printed on it will give you an illusion of a wider surface area. If you are slimmer then large floral prints shouldn’t be a problem. The trick is to understand what kind of appearance you’re going for. It goes without saying that choosing an outfit that has less floral print such as the Unaku pants below will go a long way in ensuring you get the best of both worlds. It has you enjoying the print while keeping your proportions well balanced. Also. Notice the placement of the print? That’s right, having it on the flares gives the wearer a beautiful figure, emphasizing or giving an illusion of a smaller waist and narrowing the hips to a desirable extent as well.
Stick to wearing just one print
Sure the fashion world is always coming up with different ways of styling prints and patterns, hence the emergence of the mixing prints trend. Fun as it may appear, it is not easy to achieve the perfect look when you mix your prints around especially if you are not a professional. It is therefore, advisable to stick to wearing just that one floral print to be on the safer and classier side. Remember, one mistake could have you looking like a piñata, which we do not want. Do we? Take an example of this outfit. The floral skirt paired with this solid black Unaku top gives the wearer a sense of class despite the fact that the top is simple. It makes her overall fit look expensive which is not necessarily the case. That is exactly what we want right?
Always consider the occasion
Florals are fun. They can make you look nice and bubbly. However, you need to be very careful with the kind of print you wear, the colors and the cut of the outfit pieces. There are outfits for every occasion and floral prints can very well be worn anywhere, but with consideration of this fact. You really don’t want to look too bubbly in an office. Go for something as simple as the dress below. It is in a nice soft color and despite having the floral print on it, the print is by no means overwhelming. The dress is a perfect length for a formal setting and so is its design.
So with these four tips on how to style floral prints, you can get to the shopping bit. Add florals to your wardrobe as they will spice your everyday looks but just do it right. Happy shopping!
