5 ways to wear Floral Print

Floral print is something that almost never goes out of style and you can wear it throughout summer to monsoon to spring and can carry it in autumn and winter too if you gravitate towards darker colors. I have compiled few of my recent outfits to show you guys how you can wear print in different ways:

Print on Print

This is one of the hottest ways to wear florals. If you are bold enough to carry off this trend with confidence and elegance, then you should definitely go for it. Print on print creates a captivating outfit and you are sure to make heads turn wherever you go. It doesn't necessarily needs to be stripes, you can pair floral print with plaid, houndstooth, polka dots, etc, the options are endless! The trick is to let the prints take centerstage and keep the silhouette minimal and clean. Avoid ruffles and layers.

Mixing Texture

Mixing texture with floral print can be done in many ways. One of those is layering a textured coverup along with the floral overalls, like I have done here. You could also wear a floral print shirt and wear textured/embossed trousers/skirt with it. Avoid too much color contrasting though, pick a color from your floral print and use the textured piece in same color to maintain uniformity and to avoid the outfit from looking too busy. 

On your Feet

Floral print shoes are very much in style these days. I am wearing a simple comfy pair but you can go for wedges or heels in bright floral prints. All you have to do is keep the outfit simple and let your soles do the talking.

Sporty Chic

Yes, all you girls who have a tomboyish style can also wear florals in a feminine way while still maintaining your personal style. I went for a shift dress in floral print with a jersey feel to it. You can skip the heels for canvas shoes if that's more your style! If dress isn't something that goes with your vibe, then pair a floral sweatshirt with leggings, denims or joggers. 

Minimal & Casual

This outfit is also print on print but it's more on the casual and relaxed side. The floral print is just peeking through while the stripes take the centerstage. This would be a perfect outfit for a day out with friends or for a stroll along the beach. 

So you see, whether your style is relaxed and sporty or eclectic and chic, you can always rock some floral print!
