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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
