There are certain things in life that just work like magic together: Tom and Jerry; Lennon and McCartney; Peanut Butter and Jelly. In fashion, that timeless combination is unquestionably floral prints and spring.

 

Time and again, floral prints would blossom the moment temperature warms after winter. Boasting vibrant colors and intricate patterns, no spring wardrobe would be complete without at least an item piece with floral prints.

 

Unfortunately, some people still shy away from wearing floral prints, assuming that it’s a look reserved for seasoned fashionistas. Fear not, help is on the way. Here is all you need to know to get your very own killer floral look this spring.

The Basics

 

You open your wardrobe and see all the floral dresses and blouses you just picked up from the store. But where to begin?

 

Start by looking at the patterns. If the design is busy and vibrant, then allow the floral print be the focus and match it with something simple. But if you want to wear a simple floral print, you can try adding more colors to your outfit by combining it with bold and vivid items.

There are usually multiple colors on floral print designs, which could make color-matching difficult. To save yourself a headache, simply look for the main color of the floral item. You can then easily figure out what goes well with your floral dress or blouse.

Start Simple

 

When done right, the full floral look can be breathtakingly stunning. But for the uninitiated, the thought of walking out the front door covered head-to-toe in floral prints is intimidating to say the least.

 

Luckily, there are many ways to incorporate floral prints into your outfit without dressing like a spring garden. A light skirt with one single floral pattern is a good place to start. Match it with a cardigan when it’s breezy or throw on a trench coat if it’s cold outside – you’ll get a crisp spring look as long as you keep your top simple.

A floral blouse is another item that’s not only easy to work with but versatile as well. Put on a pair of jeans with a floral blouse for a chic casual look. It also goes well with dress pants and heels when you need some flower power for your office outfit.

Nailing the Floral Total Look

 

Made famous by the hippies in the 1960s, the one piece floral print dress is an iconic fashion item. And understanding tone on tone is the key to getting the floral total look right.

 

In a nutshell, tone on tone combines clothes in matching hues together, creating a sense of continuity throughout. Say the dominant color of your dress is pink, it would likely work well with shoes that also have a similar hue.

You can play around with tone on tone even further by organizing your outfit around stand out colors of the dress. For example, if your dress is light yellow with solid red floral patterns, the red is the first color that catches the eye. In that case, you can try combining that with red shoes to accentuate the color even more.

One Dress, Multiple Looks

 

Most people assume that there is only one way to wear the one piece floral dress. But with just a few simple tricks, it can become much more versatile.

 

Throw a floral dress on top of a t-shirt and you’ll get a comfortable yet elegant outfit. Wearing jeans or trousers under a floral dress is another way to keep your spring wardrobe fresh.
