How to Wear Floral Prints

Bold floral prints are all over the fashion world but when it comes to creating your own outfit, they can be a nightmare to mix and match. Here are some guidelines on how to mix, match, pair and wear florals this season.

Dress in Bloom

What's more pretty and feminine than a flowered dress? Grab a fab dress, then pick one color from the print and pair the dress with a cardigan, shoes, belt, hat, and/or purse in that color. Don't be tempted to wear a flower in your hair or other flower accents -- too many flowers look more like a costume than a fashion statement. Do try pairing your ultra-feminine floral dress with your favorite denim jacket for a fun and funky twist. 

Skirts, Pants, Shorts or Capris

Floral bottoms are playful, and can look very fashionable when paired with a top in an accent color that you pick out of the print. Self-conscious about your lower half? Pair flowered bottoms with a long tunic or flowing top that falls mid-thigh or flows down your back. Got nice legs you want to show off? Tuck in a tank and cinch your waist with a skinny belt.

Flowered tops look great on stick figure models and movie stars with professional stylists, but in the dressing room, they can come off highlighting your least favorite assets or looking out of place. If you are tiny, large prints may overwhelm you, and if you are big, tiny prints may make you look bigger. Always try on floral tops and make sure the flowers don't fall in an awkward place on your bustline, or you may end up highlighting your chest instead of your fashion sense. 


Not ready to make a statement with bold prints? Floral accents are just the remedy. A beautiful silk scarf draped lightly around your neck or hanging straight down over a neutral outfit can add enough flowers to be flirty and fun! Flowered canvas espadrilles, a floral patterned hat or even a fedora with a floral band also add a touch of trend without overwhelming. Floral jewelry or hair accents over anything you like to wear always add a tropical flair to any outfit!

I follow him or i would be left out i dont know what to do?  :sad :love I understand, I get the same way sometimes.You want to have your alone time with him, without others being around. I just told my boyfriend how I felt, and we both compromised on it. You just have to talk about it, agree and compromise. However, a lot of times, his friends kinda know when to leave also. Haha.
