Flower Power

Floral prints emerge on the fashion scene every year round. It seems as if when warmer weather begins to hit, the need to “lighten up” our style comes along with it. Most of us start highlighting our hair, wearing pastels, and embracing a girlier, more feminine aesthetic. Floral prints are a great incarnation of this feminine style, and lucky for us, they’re super trendy! 

Floral prints are always a hot trend and there’s plenty of ways to wear them. I'm getting addicted to floral prints. Maybe because summer is almost here and I'm excited wearing printed outfits at a pool party or the beach(hehehe!). 

This dress I'm wearing, I got this from my sister when she had her vacation here 2 or 3years ago(I think). And, it's only now that I wore it. I never realized that this pretty dress is only sleeping in my closet for 3years(hehehe). Anyway, I wore this at a friends wedding and at a bday dinner party afterwards. At least it's "sulit" (worth it) coz I had two parties for 1 day(hehehe).  

What I liked about this Floral Print dress is that it's very feminine and sweet. Since it has already colours in it, I just wore my nude pumps, so that my main focus here will be my dress.

Tips for Wearing Floral Print

Pick a size. We’ve all seen traditional “ditsy” floral print–dainty, feminine, and totally classic. While this look will continue to be popular, you can also expect to see a more contemporary take–large, statement-making graphic florals, on tops and dresses. Middle-of-the-road kind of girl? Mid-range floral might be your thing! 
Make a statement. Floral print accessories are a great way to try the floral print trend as seasons transition. A floral print umbrella or pair of shoes will brighten up your day without looking over-the-top. If you’re wary of this trend, try incorporating it into your outfit in a statement accessory piece–you’ll make an impact, but it will still be subtle! 

Outfit Inspiration

 Go girly. Floral print is a definite staple in the girly-girl closet: think Lilly Pulitzer meets Vera Bradley. If southern-inspired style isn’t your thing, you can still create a totally girly look by picking up your favorite skirts, dresses, and blouses in tiny floral prints. Traditionally girly styles are made even more feminine with the addition of this fun print.
 Go edgy. With the right outfit, floral print can also have an edgy feel. Instead of picking dainty pastel florals, try a larger print in darker colors. As a bonus, these darker florals can be worn into cooler seasons, too! Another way to give your floral look an edgier vibe is to pair a feminine floral with tougher accessories. Think a floral print dress with a leather jacket and oxfords, or floral print leggings and a black tunic. Mix and match for a look that’s all your own!
