Did you catch my peony post a few weeks ago?... I rounded up a bunch of peony-printed dresses and accessories and home decor for your spring-shopping pleasure. What I didn't share though, are the rules to wearing floral fashions.
I like to wear beautiful bloom prints all throughout spring and summer, but I admit that styling them can be a bit of a challenge. Sometimes florals are too, well, flowery... (Does that even make sense?! I think it does!)
The key to the seasonal floral look is keeping it fresh (get it?), and styling it in a subtle way. That's why I always abide by these "rules."
Keep It Muted and Understated: I'm not saying bright florals are a no-go. But if you're tentative about testing the waters with floral frocks and skirts and tops, I'd suggest dipping your toes with more muted hues. This Wayf dress called my name because it's subtle and soft and feminine without being too girlie. I like that it's pink, but not too pink, and neutral but still colorful. The midi length is on trend and the cut is flattering and slimming.

Less Is More: Keep the accessories to a minimum. Let the floral pattern speak volumes, and avoid too many other visual distractions. A few bracelets, a simple pendant, a ring, and delicate earrings--pick one or two and then practice discretion.
Blend Feminine and Edgy: The slight flutter sleeve on this dress is my favorite detail because it's lovely, and provides slight movement. Balance out the daintiness with a leather bomber or denim jacket to keep it modern and edgy.
Mix and Match: Don't like a full floral look? Try mixing and matching patterns. A floral skirt on bottom and a striped shirt on top. It's unexpected and totally trendy.
