Miranda Priestly said it best: "Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking." Admittedly, there's nothing new about wearing a floral print, but there are many ways to interpret and have fun with the flirty pattern. Spring is all about shedding your winter layers and adding much needed pops of color and life into your wardrobe—while staying true to your personal style, of course. What many people may think is that floral automatically translates to hippie festival wear but that's far from the truth. Everyone can wear the print! Here are three ways to wear florals this season, no matter what your style preference.
A clean, classic look is always centered around basic tones such as black and white.This look is generally good for the office or other professional situations. I found these black trouser pants from H&M that had a minimal Asian floral print. I paired them with a fitted black vest and classic pumps creating an understated floral outfit that is clean and simple.
Feminine is synonymous with flirty, and floral is a great print for anyone with a ladylike style. This look is great for shopping dates with the girls or a lunch date with your beau. I had fun with a little print on print by pairing an almost comic-like mini with cheetah pumps and a casual white cropped T-shirt. A messy high bun finished off this sweet outfit.
Even those with an edgier sense of style can wear floral. It's all about what kind of print you choose and what you pair it with. Look for pieces with larger prints in darkers hues, like this black maxi dress with a dark red rose print. By mixing the maxi with a faux leather jacket and some cut-out booties you take an otherwise soft print and make it hard.
