Flirty floral patterns are a recurring spring trend. It is spring after all and this season is all about flowers, but this is not the only reason! Flowers exude femininity, liveliness, and look oh so pretty. In addition to that, they are part of the popular 70s trends which also include colorful wide legged pants, clogs, and maxi dresses. Among the ultimate 70s trends were bold floral prints and this take on flower gorgeousness is all what is necessary to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe.
Many women find flowers a bit hard to include in an outfit, but the task is a lot simpler than it seems. First of all, this trend should not be part of more than one component of the outfit or the accessories. A floral top looks beautiful with solid color bottoms and it is preferable to wear a dark solid color if the floral pattern is more on the bright side. With all the bold spring colors, this will mostly be the case.
If these prints are too much on fabrics for some tastes, then why not accessorize? Flower pendants in fuchsia, orange, or yellow will look mesmerizing with an outfit which is more on the neutral side. Hair accessories derived from floral designs in jewel tones are also very flattering. A pearl or precious stone bracelet with some flowers or petals in between is a subtle yet creative way of enjoying this trend. For showing off toned legs, a flower anklet can look flirty and fun since floral prints on shoes can make them tricky to wear. Shoe lovers beware, they are only to be worn with plain outfits in a matching shade.
On the other hand, many fashion divas like to work a trend to the extreme. The best way to do that is to combine two of this spring's biggest trends and try a floral maxi dress. A full floral dress can look adorable for the beach, with a solid color bolero and heels for the evening, and adding a hint of glitter will transform it into a night look. A silk dress with a flower pattern will stand out amid millions of little black dresses. Nude sandals can help balance out any noisy prints and look classy.
Flowers can be a great way to channel inner beauty and a fresh spring spirit after the cold winter days. A romantic trend can never exist without floral looks and Spring/Summer runways were filled with them playfully matched with lace and leggings, creating a bohemian style. Which flower will you pick?
