STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Floral Fun
Maybe it's their bright colors, their scent or perhaps the way you can arrange different types together to make a beautiful bouquet. Whatever it is, there's something about flowers that just makes people happy and it seems as if floral print is having the same effect on us this season. From sunglasses to pants, floral print is growing wild all around us. Floral prints are a classic way to add femininity to any outfit and it’s time to learn how to wear them in a way that works for your style.
First off, there is a vast library of floral prints to choose from that range from simple and dainty to bold and contemporary. It’s important to pick a print that you feel comfortable in. It’s always fun to step out of your comfort zone and try something new, but make sure that the print you pick is one you feel confidant in. When it comes to fashion, as many of you know, you only look as good as you feel, so when you put on that floral print, you should feel great! If you’re hesitant about this trend, floral accessories are the way to go. This week’s Fashionista wears an abstract floral print scarf to give her outfit a feminine touch. She pairs the scarf with jean shorts, a loose fitted shirt and her Converse All-Stars for a casual look. Other floral-laden accessories I’ve seen this season are shoes, sunglasses, purses and jewelry — just to give you an idea.
Once you choose a floral print, coordinate the rest of your outfit around that color scheme. Floral print usually consists of multiple colors, so you have plenty of options available when it comes to putting your outfit together. Another flattering way to style floral print is pairing it with neutrals. This is the best way to go if you aren’t going to wear colors that are incorporated in the print. Dress up your ensemble with a blazer and heels or keep it relaxed with a loose fitted T-shirt. For more advice on how to style floral prints, check out this Whittier College Style Guru’s post.
