Floral prints can be worn by anyone at any age. Sometimes, you think of your grandmother’s couch when you think of flowers but fear not. You will not age yourself, nor look overly feminine if you style it right. This pattern is a classic print so it is always in style. Here are a few fashion ideas for florals!
For casual outings, pair a black skirt with pink roses with a white oxford shirt under a blue knit sweater. Finish with cute ankle boots and an envelope clutch. If you want to add extra style, wear a bucket hat and let your hair hang loose. Another option is to wear maroon jeans with a sleeveless button down top in a bright pattern of roses and peonies. Add sensible heels, a short leather jacket and a handbag with a chain strap for a little bit of edge. A day at the beach deserves something a little more cool and skin baring. Try cut off jeans and a cropped tank top underneath a loose floral overshirt. Accessorize with a few bangles and wear sandals to finish the look.
In the fall, dresses in this pattern can be worn with thick tights, boots, and a solid cardigan. Add a pendant for some sparkle and you are set! If you are a little more daring, wear a body hugging tube dress, tights, boots, and a faux monkey fur jacket. Carry a leather handbag and some big sunglasses for that Hollywood look! For something more romantic on a summer’s evening, wear a strapless dress in a bright color and a white island flower pattern. Strap on some gold sandals and wear a floppy hat. Carry a straw clutch for some real exotic island detail.
For a night out on the town, wear leggings underneath leather shorts and some high heeled boots. A loose flower patterned tanktop under a faux leopard fur jacket is a good way to mix patterns and textures. Carry a knuckle duster clutch for some added edge.
For the office, tuck a fitted long sleeved oxford into a brocade pencil skirt with rose detail. Wear sensible heels, carry a leather satchel, and finish your look with filigree hoop earrings to tie the look together.
Remember to keep the floral print limited to one item, or it may look overdone. If you must bring another element with the same pattern, let it be jewelry or a small purse.
