Combine a Floral with a Plain

The floral shirt and floral jeans are great, but do you think they’re too much? Combining floral prints can be risky. It is, however, simpler than you think.

The key to wearing florals is to pair them with a plain solid color, ideally, one that is complementary or co-ordinating with the print. Because florals are typically multicolored, any color is fair game, giving you many styling options.

Are you still not prepared for the garden party? Dress up in floral prints as a statement piece — but only one.

It’s nearly impossible for a floral print to look bad when paired with a solid neutral color. When you don’t have to wear many colors, such as those found in the actual print, neutrals such as white, black, ivory, grey, and beige are another styling option. It’s also a “safe” styling technique when you’re unsure what to wear but want to incorporate florals into your wardrobe.

Maintain Unpredictability

If you think florals are too girly or matronly for you, it’s time to toughen them up by giving them a modern edge. Over your skirt or dress, throw on a denim trucker jacket or a leather biker jacket. Alternatively, pair a sharply tailored jacket with floral silk pants.

When paired with floral prints, the mix of feminine and masculine is incredibly alluring. Alternatively, go short and pair with strappy gladiator sandals or sexy heels.

Remember Your Accessories

It’s always useful to have a floral accessory in your wardrobe, even if it adds a whimsy touch. But don’t go overboard. Remember to keep it simple, as with any statement-making outfit.

If you’re wearing eye-catching prints, keep the accessories simple and let the print speak for itself. Choose a chunky bracelet or cuff, one stunning pair of earrings, or a statement necklace—never all three— and avoid small, dainty jewelry, which the busy florals will swallow up. On the other hand, scarves, bags, and hats can add a splash of color.

Here’s an ultimate guide to fashion accessories that might help!

Combination of Print and Pattern

If you want to go wild and mix print with print, one should be smaller than another and in the same or similar color family. Try mixing print with monochrome or like-toned graphic prints like stripes or spots to shake things up.

  • Florals come in various sizes, but if you are curvy, avoid larger oversized prints. The same is true for smaller Liberty-style prints.
  • A plain-colored jacket will slim you down over a floral dress, whereas brightly colored skinny jeans or pants will slim you under a floral top. Experiment with different proportions to see what works best for you.
  • If you have a larger figure, avoid large oversized prints because they will make you look even larger.
  • Depending on which area you want to highlight, a medium floral print will fit thinner people, some hourglass figures, pear shapes, and athletic figures.
  • Use a larger floral print to make things appear larger and a relatively small floral print to make things appear smaller.
  • Everyone can pull off a small floral print.

Start Small

If you’re unsure how to style your floral print apparel, start by only wearing it in a small part of your outfit. Begin by incorporating print into a small portion of your entire look, such as a printed scarf, bag, or shoes. This print can make a statement without overpowering the rest of your outfit.

As you gain confidence in your ability to wear prints, you can opt for a larger scale print, such as printed pants or a printed blazer, with the remainder of your outfit remaining neutral.

Don’t Ignore the Scale

Take note that scale is important. Floral prints come in various shapes, colors, and sizes; therefore, opt for smaller prints in monotonous colors if you want to be more subtle. 

Because of the prints, you can easily match the garment with others. Scaled-up prints appear playful and chic, but the look is dressed down and more wearable when paired with minimal accessories.
