You know you´re a girl if you own some floral in your closet. Floral speak volume about femininity. But does wearing this print got to be too feminine, demure and too girly? With today´s strong-headed women navigating and excelling even in a masculine world, the way floral are styled also evolved.
Ditch those long flowing floral dresses, matching floral separates or floral tops paired with conservative, very feminine skirts. We´re talking floral worn boldly, sporty and casually relaxed.
Now grab your most vibrant floral top and be ready to style it in three different ways. For today´s post, I´m using this white floral slash neck top from Dorothy Perkins. I love the vibrance of its red and blue floral prints against the white. See how to style it three ways.
Floral Print: Clashing and Daring
We all know that today´s trend is about bold prints blend. That applies to floral too. Try pairing a clashing top and short or mini skirt. Tuck in your top to create a definition between the prints. Note that we opt for tiny separates to go with your top so you don´t overload with floral. Add an attention-grabbing pair of platform heels in ivory or beige.
Floral Print: Cool and Sporty
As I´ve said, florals don´t have to be girlie and too feminine. Create a cool, sporty look with your floral top by pairing it with neon trousers, preferably cropped; high-top trainers and loose blazer. Tuck in your top for a more sporty feel.
Floral Print: Casually Chic
In doing florals for daytime, you don´t want to look over-committed and too done. For a relaxed, chic, casual day look, simply layer your floral top over a silk tunic dress or a silk dress that hits at midshin. Go for a fun pair of leather brogue. Let your accessories maintain the same vibe, such as this beige shoulder/crossbody bag.
