There was a time when I got squeamish on anything with floral prints. I was traumatized by the horrendous sight of flower-printed bedsheets, rosy curtains, tacky table cloths, bathroom wallpaper that left a bad taste in my mouth, even a slight nausea. So my dislike of floral really started mostly with home decor. For the last couple years, I’ve slowly developed a soft side with floral fashion along with lace, ruffles, all that is girly and romantic! Lately I have this extreme urge to put on a floral dress and chunky high heels… go out and play in the sun. It must be the “spring in me” ready to burst. I sound like a broken record player but the weather has been so incredibly gorgeous that it gives me even more reason to be a flower child.
Not all floral dresses are made equal. Some dresses definitely give off that cheap prom-y vibe… how lame they are. I adore short floral dresses especially in spring. They are super chic when worn with tights and chunky heels. Vintage style dresses are fantastic. Small, delicate floral prints seem to blend easier with the rest. When chilly out, throw on a fringe scarf or a light cardigan. Accessorize with a wide belt if you want to dress it up. Or go boho with fringe boots and floppy hat. Floral mini skirts are equally nice too.
Florals frocks are fun and not as difficult to wear as you might imagine. Keep the florals just with the dress. Don’t go estrogen overload from head to toe. Accessories should be cool and neutral to balance out the feminine factor. As usual, I incorporate floral with a bit of edginess. The mesh hoodie is to-die-for.
