Flirty floral fashions
Floral fashions can add a burst of color to your everyday wardrobe. Floral prints are feminine, flirty and fun. Embrace the floral trend this summer by wearing floral dresses, accessories, jewelry and more.
All over floral printsIf you are ready for a bold new look, choose a summer dress in an all over floral print. Though head-to-toe florals aren't for everyone, they can be very beautiful if done right.
Yellow and orange floral prints are very trendy right now. However, you can choose flowery prints in almost any combination of colors. If you wear a floral dress, you should pull one color out of the print and use that color for your shoes, bag and other accessories. For example, in this Ralph Lauren dress pictured to the right, red or yellow accessories would be ideal.
With all over prints, you need to make sure you choose the right sized pattern for your body type. For example, petite women should avoid big, bold prints, which can be overwhelming and make you look even shorter. On the contrary, plus-sized or tall women should steer clear of small prints, which can make you look larger.
Floral elementsIf an all over floral look isn't for you, instead add one piece - either top or bottom - in a floral print.
Pear-shaped women look great in flowery tops paired with solid skirts. When selecting the color for the skirt, instead of choosing basic black, pull one of the colors from the print.
A solid color ruffly top with a floral A-line skirt is also a feminine look that can be worn by most women.
Floral accessoriesYou can get into the floral trend in a small way by adding floral bags, shoes, scarves and other accessories to your wardrobe.
Wearing one floral print accessory is a great way to add a burst of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. Here are three of my favorite floral pieces right now. These choices are not only beautiful but also quite affordable.
