Let’s Start With Choosing Your Floral Wears
Floral wears are vast and indefinite, they can fit in perfectly with wears having complimentary colours
In choosing the floral wears that are perfect for you, you need to consider your body size. While larger flowers are more flattering to petite body types, oversized floral patterns may add a few pounds to your silhouette and thus are not recommended for shapely women. Smaller flowers and floral patterns give the impression of a solid and are recommended for average to more shapely body types.
If your body type is slim to average consider exploring a balance of larger floral patterns and smaller patterns. When unsure if the pattern is flattering try to break up the pattern with a belt or trendy scarf.
Floral Dresses Are Perfect With Neutral Colors
Floral dresses that have an all-over floral motif that spreads uniformly over the fabric should be toned down and paired with neutral or nude colors. Neutral colors give your dress the ability to carry your floral and feminine style.
Neutral colors such as black, beige, white, nude, and silver generally compliment floral patterns and are often closet staples . From your shoes to your jewelry to the bag you decide to carry, adding neutral shades ensures the floral print is balanced and in harmony with your style.
Pair Your Floral Wears With Pattern
If want a more edgy sex appeal look, ditch the neutral colors and go for some pattern mixing instead.
Often your fashion palate turns to solids when choosing something to pair with your floral designs. However, pattern mixing is acceptable and a simple way to appear trendy and stylish.
Pair your floral dress with an accessory that has a bold stripes design such as a bangle bracelet or cuff. Also consider choosing one or two colors from your floral pattern dress and matching all your accessories to those shades.
How to Accessorize Floral Wears
Floral dresses are inherently feminine and tend to be showstoppers on their own. So it can be a challenge to pair the dress with accessories that add to your look instead of distracting from it.
Shoes have the power to make or break your floral outfit. For these dresses, particularly ones that have a bold or dark background palette, steer clear of wearing matching floral print shoes. Floral dresses are best worn with neutral sandals, wedges, or stilettos. You could also pick one of the sober shades of the dress and match with the color of your shoes.
Another edgy idea is to pair your floral dress with all black accessories. By adding tough black accessories such as black gladiator stilettos or flats, black studs, slim black belt, and cross-body black bag, to your feminine floral dress, you create an alluring mix of chic and edgy style.
We advice you select a handbag that matches the most prominent color in your floral wear. If you think following this tip is going to make your overall ensemble too loud, tone it down with a solid neutral bag in basic colors such as blue, black, white, tan, or brown.
If your dress boasts floral prints in just two colors, consider stepping off the beaten track and opting for a handbag in a solid, contrasting color such as red.
Since floral dresses tend to have bold, bright, and noticeable colors, pairing with bold and colorful jewelry is a fashion faux pas. A floral dress of any color is best accessorized with pieces that are delicate, subtle, and simple. A statement jewelry piece may distract attention from the dress and clash with it’s bolder tones. It is better to opt for simple drop earrings or studs, a thin chain with a small and delicate pendant or locket, and a thin bracelet. Keep your jewelry simple, a bit traditional, and classic.
Pairing With Blazer/ Jacket
During cold weather or when going to work you might need to pair your floral wears with blazer or jacket, this will give your outfit a casual style that is both polished and chic.
A blazer makes your floral dress office and workplace ready while a leather jacket offers an edgy look that grabs attention.
