Fashion Rules: How To Wear Floral Prints

Published

on

Summer is not complete without flowers, including on clothes. But how you wear such a floral dress also depends on the event you are going to and the stuff you combine it with. Maybe you didn’t wear floral dresses before because you didn’t know how to choose the right one and what to wear with it. This short guide will answer questions that have worried you for a long time.

Types Of Floral Looks

  • Full-body floral look is when a toilet is entirely covered with a print. Pick neutral shoes and accessories, then.
  • Print-block look supposes you combine one printed item with monotonous ones. For example, a bright blouse, top, skirt, shorts, or pants with a flower pattern complement calm things of the same color.
  • Print-to-print look allows you to mix floral toilets with other printed elements, for example, a floral blouse with a striped skirt. You have to be very careful here so that everything looks harmonious.
  • A bright accent means you have one colorful detail of a floral print in an image: a bag, shoes, or a scarf.

How Would You Wear Your Summer Floral Dress?

  • A large floral print looks perfect on a woman’s floral dress. Be careful wearing printed pants, oats, or shirts.
  • A small floral print is easier to mix with other things. It perfectly complements denim and plain fabrics.
  • If you have a curvy figure, give preference to a small print. You can afford a floral dress with large, gorgeous flowers if you are tiny.

Do not forget that prints emphasize the figure. Therefore, wear printed skirts and shorts if you want to hide broad shoulders, and blouses and tops if you need to hide the flaws of the lower part of the body.

How To Fit Floral Prints

The simplest and win-win option combines a floral gown with white accessories.

Playing on the contrast will add even more tenderness and charm to the image. Wear a floral dress for women with chunky boots and a leather jacket to impress others.

If your dress or skirt with a floral print is white, combine it with white sneakers. A relaxed and romantic look is guaranteed.

A light-flowing flowered dress goes well with minimalist sandals. This look is suitable for an evening, dance party, or date.

A bright accessory in the form of a handbag or scarf, which can tie around the neck, will dilute a stern look.

So, if you choose the right color and style for your toilet, you will look more feminine and, of course, more attractive. With USA shipping, you can buy the floral dresses of any size and model on the Milla online store. Milla and Milla Nova catalogs will show more evening and wedding dresses available online and more ideas for wearing a floral print.
