When I say floral print, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Up until very recently, I would have said, “My Easter dress from 1995.” Or “Romantic gowns worn by rich ladies in the Upper East somewhere.” Regardless of what comes to mind, there’s no denying that floral is everywhere. Spring is just around the corner so ditch your any ideas you had that floral is only for girly girls and babies in tights. Here are 5 ways to wear floral.
1. Floral and Leather
Found a pretty floral top but looking for a way to add some edge? Try a pair of leather pants and/or a blazer in a complementing color. Structure on top, sleek sophistication on the bottom.
Find a floral dress that hugs you in all the right places. Then throw on a fitted, dark jacket and some matching booties. The floral dress is feminine but the booties are your wink to something a little edgier.
Ankle boots are all over the place! In hundreds of styles from the runways to the thrift stores, this shoe trend doesn’t looks like it’s going anywhere anytime soon.
Winter or summer, ankle boots are versatile, easy and if you find a great print they are pretty fun and a great way to show off your personal style. Here’s a bit of inspiration to get you to throw on those ankle booties at work, out with friends or traveling!
1. Weekend Hipster
That favorite pair of skinny jeans? Yeah, throw those on with some ankle booties and your favorite blouse. You’ll look effortlessly hip for that Saturday brunch date!
Spring is just around the corner! Get ready to say goodbye to hunter green and knee-high boots, it’s pastel and neon time! Neon is a trend that is all over the place right now. From nails to messenger bags, this trend turns otherwise boring outfits into surprising, fun, and vibrant show stoppers. Here are 5 ways to wear neon. (Without looking like the 80’s threw up on you.)
1. Skinny Jeans
If you go with neon on the bottom, keep things simple and sophisticated on top. A denim jacket is a great way to add structure to any casual outfit and I’m always a fan of fun, print flats.
If you’re not a girly girl, the title of this post may be a bit of a turn-off for you. I’ll be the first one to say that I’m not a super girly girl. But stay with me! There’s a huge difference between being feminine and being a girly girl. Every woman likes to feel pretty. It’s in our nature ladies. Maybe we feel pretty at different times, in different situations, and wearing different things. But you love feeling pretty. Don’t lie.
Maybe wearing a poofy skirt is completely out of your comfort zone. Who cares! Break that mold you’ve made for yourself. Dress up! Look pretty!
Here are a few ways to wear a poofy skirt:
1. Floral and Fitted
If you opt for a floral skirt, try a fitted and simple jacket or blazer on top. The floral is feminine and fun but the blazer keeps it sophisticated.
