Floral attires are exciting and catchy and we all own at least one or two floral pieces in our closet however they have one trick to them; balance. You wear them the right way, you look fabulous but you overdo the look and end up looking like an organized mess, not good. If you are having trouble styling those florals, here are some tips for you:
Less is more
When wearing something floral whether a dress, jumpsuit, romper, skirt, blouse, remember there is no room for more. Keep the accessories at a minimum to maintain the balance. Let your shoes, bag, or jewelry be in solid colors. One wrong move and you could be headed to town.
One print is enough
Mixing colors is okay however, mixing floral prints is for the brave and those who have mastered this art. Do not add another floral print to your flowered attire if you are not sure about how it’s done, you might end up looking chaotic. Throw on that leather jacket or a solid-colored kimono but never another competing print.
Do not oversized florals with oversized complements
Oversized prints give an illusion of a large frame. Throwing in another oversized loose clothing with a floral print will have you looking heavier than you do. Pair that floral print with another fitting garment or at least keep it short if it’s a dress or skirt.
Wear it smart
Florals are the masters of attention, especially bright-colored ones. This can always work to your advantage, use that print to direct attention to your favorite curves or take away attention from your least favorite parts. If you want to accentuate your thighs get that floral pants with a blacktop. However, if you are not so comfortable about your thighs but you appreciate your torso, throw in a floral blouse and it will shift the attention from your thighs to your bodice. This technique is known as the floral shuffle, it works wonders.
Wear smaller flattering florals
Smaller florals will give an impression of a smaller frame while larger ones will give an impression of a larger frame. So if you want to look tiny, wear a dress with small prints but if you want to look larger than your size goes for larger prints.
If in doubt stay neutral
Neutrals are a safe choice when you are not sure which solid color to match your floral print with. Neutral colors such as black, white, grey, ivory, and beige will most definitely fit with any floral pattern and it is practically impossible to mismatch.
