Adding a bold floral to your closet can seem like an overwhelming chore. To help you figure out what florals you need this year we rounded up a few pieces that are exactly what you need.

Let’s start with the most obvious; the floral print dress. This is the best item a girl can have in her closet! Perfect for warm days spent outside, family get togethers, and evening concerts. A floral dress is timeless and a dress like any of these three will last you for seasons.

If bright florals aren’t your thing, a dress like the Amuse Society printed dress in blue has a more toned down, subtle look. For a totally different take on the flowery clothing, you can try a style with embroidered or appliqué flowers, like the Everly Embroidered Gingham dress, it gives you the floral your spring closet needs while being subtle. This gingham dress has all the 90s vibes that are trending right now too (BONUS)!

Speaking of embroidered things, floral embroidered jeans are the way to go this season! They you give you that subtle hint of floral, plus we have these in so many styles that it’s an easy way to make it fit your personal taste! For the perfect fitspo look, we are loving the Mono B activewear collection and even if you end up never going to the gym, these stylish leggings make the best loungewear. For a sweet summer flower-pattern, these En Creme Twill Leaf Shorts are lightweight and they have a charming palm leaf and floral print. How much more summery can a pair of shorts get??

For a more of an unexpected floral look, you can try a bold floral top in a unique style to give your closet something fun. The bell sleeve top by Lush or the Amuse Society Tie Front Crop Top are eye-catching styles that will give you the sweet floral with a twist.

Now for accessories, we just love floral accessories because they go great with the neutrals in your closet, or to be daring you can throw these with some patterns like stripes, or gingham prints. Adding a floral printed shoe to your summer wardrobe will be the totally unexpected and a super fashionable addition. You can try a shoe like the Blowfish Marley shoes, they are the perfect summertime style, but with that pastel and colorful design, they are next level adorable! We are loving headbands during this time of the year, they are perfect for throwing up your hair when it’s hot and still managing to look put together! These two prints by Natural Life are so sweet, perfect for adding something fun to your everyday looks!

Fabulous Florals

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.

Play hide-and-seek.

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.
