We all love a floral number in our wardrobe. Something to add the dash of colour and vibrance, to give us a break from the regular, sometimes mundane prints. But we also sometimes feel stuck on how to style the florals so as to maintain a balance and let our personalities shine through the attire.
The Workwear Affair
Workwear can turn dull and boring even before you know it. It takes a whole lot of style and a little bit of caution to take florals into the realm of power dressing.
How to do it? Pick one piece of clothing with florals that amp up the outfit without overdoing it.
Some patchwork on the sleeve, or bright floral prints on the lapel or pockets could do the trick for you. Even a monochrome dress with floral prints would make you stand out from the crowd.
Pro tip: Keep the accessories muted when sporting florals to ensure that the highlight stays on your OOTD
Flower Power at a Party
When stepping out for a party, whether a birthday brunch or a night out with your gang, floral outfits are a great option that adds colour and glamour to the gathering.
Pick a bright floral dress in hues like yellow or pink for a day outing and a slightly muted colour like pale blue or white with floral prints for an evening soiree. You can also experiment with the silhouettes that you sport, from dresses to stylish jumpsuits, big tropical prints to smaller block prints.
Pro tip: Style a pair of blingy earrings with your floral outfit to suit the party. You can use a colour block for the footwear and bag/clutch to ensure a balance in your outfit.
The Sundowner Babe
Sundowners call for bright colours and flowy outfits that can take the spirit of the gala from day to night. Sport a flowy tunic dress in a soft silhouette like Doria or georgette with bright floral prints that make your outfit stand out from the crowd.
You can also opt for a cotton dress in bright colours if you are looking for a cool outfit on a hot summer day.
Whether you pick a dress or a skirt in a flowy fabric make sure to pick a bright-toned floral outfit that goes well with your skin tone and body type.
Pro tip: Pick smaller prints if your body type is pear or hourglass and a slightly bolder print if your body type is apple or rectangle as bigger prints add volume to your shape.
Chic in Ethnic
Nothing makes an outfit stand out the way a floral print does, especially when dressing ethnic. Various types of floral prints ranging from machine prints to block prints and now even hand-painted motifs are available in ethnic outfits.
You can sport a hand block printed suit set in colours like black and pink to a formal setup or don a hand block printed maxi dress styled with an oxidised choker to an exhibition, these pieces are very versatile and suit all body types.
Indo western pieces like a block-coloured tunic with a floral printed jacket are also a rage and can be styled as per individual preferences.
Pro tip: Oxidised jewellery goes well with the colour and textile of hand block printed outfits. Wear chunky jhumkas or long neckpieces with your ethnic floral outfit for the perfect look.
Slumber Party Diva
Who said floral prints are limited to dresses and suits when it comes to floral printed outfits for women?! Floral printed outfits can amp up your pyjama party or that movie night that you have been planning for ages too!
Pick a Kaftan in bright floral print or a night suit set in tangy colours to add the right amount of jazz to your slumber party. Pair a silk headband or scrunchie to keep it comfortable and trendy.
Pro tip: If you are customising your outfit, get a set of matching slip-ons and hair accessories with your outfit.
Now when you are picking an outfit, no matter the occasion, don't forget that floral outfit you have been saving up all this while. Wear your florals with confidence.
