6 Ways To Wear Floral

This Spring is all about florals. Floral print, albeit one of this seasons hottest trends, can be a tricky one to pull off. Depending on the way you style your outfit, it can turn out one way or another. You don’t want to be buying a cute floral two pieces or flowy dress that once on, leaves you looking like you’re the long lost daughter of a traditional farmer. So, here are a few simple tips to help steer you towards the best way to style of floral for each occasion.



Festival Fever: You probably want to feel laid back in your outfit as well as able and ready to party. Smaller prints are great for informal occasions and seen as most festivals are held in hot climates, it’s important that your outfit allows you to breath, shorter lengths are appropriate this time around and the ‘flowier’, the better. Finish off your outfit with a cute feather head-piece, a hippy hand-chain or bindi for the ultimate exotic festival style. Be as free as you can be!

For That Special Occasion: Larger prints are a nice choice for smart occasions, try contrasting a few bright colours with a neutral base. It’s the right time to look stylishly feminine, so a figuring hugging dress, smart top with leather pants or a floor length gown are a few of your wisest options. Midi length is always the height of sophistication. You stunner you!

Daytime Stroll: You want something comfortable and casual to go for your morning walk in. Something that’s easy to pair with flats and a little across the body bag. Short enough to show off your legs but not so that when the wind blows, everything is on display. Floor length dresses and skirts are a beautiful option too. The trainer style shoes or open sandals will give your floral patterns a laid back approach, making it appear as a mix between boho and activewear. Mix it up!

Evening Time: This time you can get away with the more stare-worthy designs, i.e deep necklines, open backs, shorter lengths, skin showers etc. The evening can be a time to wear more flamboyant colours too, but very skimpy designs with brights can be OTT, so select one or the other and you’re good to go. Don’t forget to pair your outfit with some hot as hell heels!
