This blogpost is about floral dresses. Or prints. Or pants. Spring has started and there are always florals readily available in the stores.
There are so many to choose from and are a lovely feminine way to wear colour and print.
But they are not for everyone. Some women don’t wear them and that is because it doesn’t suit their personality. It is a really feminine aspect and some women like to express that differently. You don’t have to wear florals to feel feminine of course but for those who choose so it does.

Florals give you that bright, happy feeling and bring colour and pattern to your outfit. It can alter your mood when you wear the right colour and pattern. Choose wisely and make sure it feels right for you. The key here is to look at the size of the print, this comes all down to personal scale. When you have a petite frame, choose a smaller print. This works better because a large floral print may totally overwhelm you and you look out of proportion. People see the print before you.
When you are medium framed choose a print that suits you and is medium in size, you’ll see it when you try it on and it makes sense.
And of course when you have a larger frame you opt for a larger print. A small floral print won’t look as good on you so keep that in mind.
Below here are some examples of different size florals:

Another great way of picking your florals is to look for the type of florals working with your style personality. Do you like a dramatic floral with a very strong colour contrast? Or a soft pastel feminine? Maybe a very classy elegant chic? There are some florals that can make you look older and some that look too young.  For me it has to be modern and I like a bit of contrast in the colours too. I make sure my outfit doesn’t look overly feminine by combining it with some more edgy pieces to counteract that. It’s all about personal style. Do what feels right for you and you’ll love wearing them.

If a floral dress is too much for you but do like the idea of using a floral print in your outfit, then there are many other ways to incorporate it in your look. Think floral jackets, shoes, scarves and even jewellery. You can choose 1 piece with a floral print or 1 accessory and work with that. Make sure your florals are seasonal to give your look an updated feel.
