Floral Prints: Wrapped In Spring

Floral Prints: Wrapped In Spring

Spring-floral-trends-makemechic

Why we love it

While floral print trends have been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, this spring, floral prints take on a sophisticated, modern, and fresh new look. This season’s floral trends run from sweet and poetic, as seen on the Rebecca Taylor runway, to moody and edgy like the Marc Jacobs collection. Its versatility and feminine edge bring fashion to a higher level.

How to rock it

Around this time of the year, we can always count on a full floral fantasy, with a wide array of floral prints showing up everywhere from clothing and accessories to women’s shoes. Don’t limit your blossoms to your clothing; this year, floral prints are blossoming among combat boots and sneakers as well as pumps! This trend transforms the masculine and casual into something flirty and fun. If you want to try out this trend without taking away your sporty vibe, don some cool floral sneakers.

You may be wondering how to properly accessorize your floral outfit. To avoid looking too overly done, pair a colorful floral print to a simple pair of earrings or a structured bag. You can also choose a nice statement necklace to complete your effortless summer look; the key is to limit cute accessories to allow the floral print to be the main focus of your outfit. The same rule applies to makeup. Wearing a simple yet elegant nude or pink lip color with a dab of blush will complement floral prints and give you a naturally beautiful look.

Simple rules to follow

We know it’s hard to remember all of these helpful suggestions so we’ve made it easier for you by condensing them into a few easy tips. So, give our 3 simple rules a road test during your next shopping trip.

Rule 1: Limit your accessories. Choose one or two accessories that will add to your outfit, rather than make it distracting. A simple belt with a complementary tone to your floral pattern will complete your look; you can also choose a simple necklace or headband.

Lea Michele

Rule 2: Make your outfit pop. Pick pieces with unexpected eye-catching elements like 3-D embellishments, sequins, neon hues and leather.  This will give sweet floral prints a cool edge.

Olivia Palermo

Rule 3: Take the word balance to heart. For a complete head-to-toe floral look, pick different patterns for the top and bottom. The different textures will keep the look interesting and well composed.

Alexandra Golovanoff

Bonus: For the daring fashionistas, turn the most classic spring trend on its head by trying something unique. Mix it up by pairing one floral print with another using base colors like black and white so the look is not overpowering.

 

Get wrapped up in spring by trying out some of these ideas the next time you wear floral!
