As the weather warms, flowers begin to bloom in stores and closets all over. So, what better time to clean out your closets of all the dead cold weather fashion than now. Bye, bye, heavy coats, bulky boots and thicker fabrics. Hello spring!
Luckily for us, floral fashions are blossoming in abundance everywhere. So, don’t pack away your cardigans, tights, light jackets and lace accents yet, because you will be able to reuse them this spring.
We find florals to be fun, so here are a few tips on how to wear them.
Be aware of your body.
No body shape is exactly the same. So, when buying a floral dress be conscience of your body shape. Petite girls can pull off delicate dainty floral prints, where as, graphic prints will work better on a taller body.
If you want to create some curves wear a floral print with more of a color contrast and choose a fit that sits at your natural waist. If you dress is more of a shift then a quick fix would be to belt it at your waist. If you’re curvier then I would suggest a print with minimal color contrast and an empire waist cut. Remember: you don’t want to hide your curves. You should be proud of them. But when you wear an empire fit, you will elongate and flatter what you have.
Take a minimalist’s approach.
It’s important to remember to keep it simple when you’re wearing such a sweet pattern. As long as you keep the accessories to a minimum, you’re free to flaunt your fabulous floral style. A chunky necklace or bold earrings will often distract and cause your floral outfit to look gaudy. Keep it simple with a pair of studs and a clean neckline.
Add a little edge.
Just because it’s getting warmer out doesn’t mean that a sudden afternoon April shower or a cool evening won’t warrant for an excuse to carry a light jacket. Try adding some “edge” to your ultra feminine florals by picking a cropped vegan friendly leather jacket. If you haven’t found that perfect faux leather jacket yet, don’t fret, because a simple blazer, light jacket or cardigan will do the trick.
