fresh. fabulous. floral.
With Spring Fever officially in the air and Easter just around the corner, it's the perfect time to embrace this years floral trend! With the help of fresh pastel neutrals and some fabulous footwear, I will show you several flattering ways to pull off THE ultimate feminine statement with confidence and ease!
Let the print be the star!
Keep the rest of your outfit simple. Use neutrals in the rest of your look to balance out any print especially such a festive one as floral.
Although, black and white are always classic, soften things up for Springtime by trying these NEW, FRESH neutrals like blush, sage, cream, lt, grey, taupe and lavender. They are the perfect compliment to a bold or sweet floral print.
Whatever floral fits your fancy.
When embracing a new trend, choose a version of that trend that best suits you, your lifestyle and your comfort level. Here are a few examples:
As a Creative Professional, a full floral look in the shape of a classic silhouette is the per-fect way to effortlessly embrace the trend with confidence + grace.
If you are Casual Mama Easter egg huntin’ with your family then your floral print will translate nicely into a casual pant allowing you to stay hip + active all day long!
Fertility is in the air! A maxi dress is the most comfortable + fashionable answer to get a Mommy-To-Be from work to play without changing a thing...except maybe your lip color!
If you are Free-Spirited Girl gearing up for the outdoor concert scene then an oversized floral peasant top, romper or tunic with a big floppy hat would be your jam...
And the best way to stay fresh + cool while running around campus or running around the city is to put the floral in a bomber style jacket or a pair of sneakers or flats. That way you can be trendy while staying functional!
Still not sure you can pull it off?
I know sometimes it’s hard to just be on board with a new trend that is totally outside your comfort zone but it’s always good to try something new...how will you ever know if you don’t try, right?
So, just START SMALL with accessories. My favorites are a flower ring, earrings, necklace or brooch. But, if you are feelin’ a little bit more brave then try a belt, scarf or shoes!
Fresh + easy ways to transition your floral blouse from work to play!
1. Replace your blazer with a cool leather or suede jacket in a pastel neutral like sage or blush.
2. Switch your oxfords to a strappy heel.
3. Wear a pair of earrings + a soft pastel denim pant that will easily crossover.
4. Switch your functional bag to a fabulous clutch. 5. Add a fun lip color and you're ready to PLAY!
Whatever you do ladies, just make this trend your own so you can rock it with confidence no matter what you’re up to this season! Happy Spring Darlings!
