With the recent glorious (and not so glorious!) weather in the UK the floral prints have been out in force. I’m *generally* not a massively floral person..but I can be persuaded once in a while! I’m partial to the odd floral shoe or pretty dress…but anything that comes too close to a 1980’s Laura Ashley number and I’m afraid I can’t go there…too many bad memories of childhood hand-me-downs!
How keen you are on florals is really to do with your Style Personality…if you tend to lean towards the romantic/ frills / lace / girly side of style then you will be all over them. So for those of you who can’t get enough of anything with a flower- here is my guide on how to wear them best.
Consider the size of print if you decide to wear florals. If you’re petite, smaller more delicate prints are best. If you’re of average height then a medium size pattern will work well and if you’re grand (5’7 and taller) then you can go for something a little bigger and bolder.
2. Colour Lovers
Patterns are generally more colourful, particularly florals. As long as the overriding colour falls into your colour palette then this is fine. I would go a step further and suggest you pick out a particular colour from within the pattern for your accessories to ensure everything harmonises with your colouring and the outfit is shown off to its max.
3. Shape Up
Wear florals on your bottom half if you top-heavy and on your top half if you bottom heavy. Remember; whenever you wear your print is where the eye will be drawn so use them to show off your best bits.
4. Funky Feet
Embellished footwear is everywhere this season, so you may want to consider trainers with a floral embossed print on them. A great way of “having just a touch” without going the whole hog.
5. Subtle Statements
If you want to do florals in a more subtle way then consider adding a broach or scarf with a floral design to your outfit. Scarves also look great tied around your handbag so if the weather is too warm to wear one around your neck you can still customise your look in this way.
Hope that helps! xx
