Very soon (hopefully, anyways) it is going to be spring and there are going to be flowers blooming and birds chirping and the sun will be shining. What better way to welcome spring than by wearing an outfit reminiscent of the secret garden? There’s a way to wear florals for every style, so here are a few options:
Channel your inner flower child with this cutesy look. A slim cut floral dress ($26, chiarafashion.co.uk) with a little flair is perfect for any spring activity. Add nude, laser cut oxfords ($49, dorothyperkins.co.uk) to make the look more refined and grown up. Pick a fun floral bag in either a sensuous red ($28, artfire.com) for evening fun or bright yellow ($30, dsw.com) for sunshine-filled days. A floral headband is almost too cute to handle, but any fabulous girl can rock it. Aviators and blue nails help make the look more city chic and less Sunday school.
If you prefer florals with a little cutting edge, this look is right up your alley. Take a cool floral tee ($45, J. Crew) and use this as your only color. Add black skinny jeans ($15, H&M), black converse ($50, piperlime.gap.com), and a leather jacket ($32, efoxcity.com) for a rock-and-roll aesthetic. For accessories, keep it simple with a black studded bag ($45, awear.com) and a black necklace ($33, lorisshoes.com).
For a more boho look, stick to maxi or high-low floral skirts ($45, riverisland.com) that will sway in the wind. Add a plain white blouse, tucked in ($21, veromoda.com) for a charming effect. Wear with neutral sandals, either in a wedge ($43, shopruche.com) or flat ($20, Charlotte Russe). Add pretty, ‘earthy’ accessories like leaf earrings, faux leather bracelets, and tortoiseshell sunglasses ($13, monki.com) to catch the hippie vibe. Use simple gloss and green nails to complete the look.
Wearing florals can make any girl feel happier, and who knows, maybe it’ll even work like a rain dance and make spring come quicker. Pick your style and rock your flower power – and don’t forget to be fabulous!
