The Ungirly Girl’s Guide To Wearing Florals

March 14, 2012

Afraid of looking too precious in floral prints? Or maybe even seen (and heard!) as a lightweight, especially on the job?

But, you still are intrigued by this über popular trend and, besides, who is immune to spring fever?!

I’m here to tell you it is possible to wear floral prints and not come across looking cutesy.

The main trick is to pay attention to color palette, design and styling choices. Select flowered garments and accessories with clean lines and no frilly bows, ruffles, etcetera. See above for more specific tips.

Do any of these fears resonate with you? If so, have I convinced you to give florals a try?

    I love the idea of introducing florals through an embossed item, or jewelry with floral beads…great suggestion! Thank you, Kristine!
