Did you know that there´s a subtle alternative to floral print that´s always equally trendy for summer? Yes, it´s the botanical! It may be printed or solid so long as it embodies the look of a botanical garden. It usually has a background of green or dominated by earthy hues.
The good thing about opting for the botanical feel is, it´s not as bold or as blooming as the ultra-feminine flowers, but it´s still feminine enough for any lady. Here are three botanical looks that you will surely love to have this summer.
1. Scuba Top and Skirt in Contemporary Floral Print
It´s floral! Yes, it is. But notice that even it´s a head-to-toe set of botanical print, the flowers are faded in whimsy, white bloom and subdued with a refreshing-to-the-eye green polishing and accented with soft earth tones. You can even wear this ensemble to the office because it´s entirely elegant and professional looking.
As an alternative, you can opt for a solid top to wear with the botanical pencil skirt, or vice-versa. Keep the look soft with neutral accessories, or powerful with black additionals.
2. Rihanna Printed Dress
Dress, Necklace, Handbag, Heels
The print is made of some kind of unknown wild bush, accented with navy blue little blooms. I like this botanical print because of its cute but matured aura. Its silhouette, a classic sleeveless shift, is also flattering. You can wear it as is to special events or you can add a blazer to style it professionally.
I´d like adding a pair of heels that matches the tiny flowers in the print, but you can also experiment with neutral or black hues, or even green!
3. Greens Prue Jumpsuit
Jumpsuit! Yeah, that one-ness which is so flattering and adorable but difficult to hunt in shopping malls. I love this green jumpee because it looks powerful, as if you wear you mean business, but glamourous at the same time. Its one shoulder is balanced by a cascading bow on the opposite side. I would wear cream or nude shoes and clutch with it.
So tell me girls, are you into botanical vibe this summer?
