There was a time when floral prints were seen as ‘mumsy’ and slightly out-dated. Something to be worn with sandals and a cute little cardigan – feminine but never cool.
Oh, how things have changed…
Floral prints are here to stay
The fashion world moves in mysterious ways and has seen the classic floral print remain for yet another season. No longer ‘mumsy’ – floral prints are now synonymous with edgy fashion models and women who are seriously ‘in the know’. Worn with the right accessories, the floral print will transform your look from dowdy to edgy in an instant.
How to wear floral prints
If you’re not feeling particularly brave then opt for dainty flower print clothing for a deliciously girly look. Those who like to make a statement can choose a bold flower print design – try wearing a flower print dress with flat strappy sandals and a soft-leather vintage style bag.
The fashionable floral print is here to stay and it’s a great versatile look. You can work floral prints several ways: edgy, feminine and subtle. If you’re going for an edgy look then team a floral print bubble-hemmed skirt with a wide 80s style belt, racer back vest and clashing bag.
Those wanting to create a feminine look should wear a floral print dress with either heels for the evening or flats/sandals for the day and team this with a plain clutch bag or soft-leather handbag. The floral print can work as a subtle trend too: try teaming a floral print handbag with a well-fitted pair of jeans and a smart pair of heels – this could be adapted for the office too, you’d just need to swap the jeans for a smart pair of trousers or skirt.
Whether you’re a flower print fan or not, this trend is here to stay. Don’t be afraid – embrace the summery look and you’ll be surprised how feminine it will make you feel.
