3 Simple Ways to Style Florals for Spring

Springtime screams for floral patterns and, after months of heavy layers and dark colors, there’s no better print to freshen up your look. Whether you’re one to sport them in bold patterns from head-to-toe, or someone who prefers a more modest pop of color, it’s incredibly simply to incorporate these pretty florals into your look.

Highlight Your Favorite Assets

Whether you favor your strong arms, or love to elongate a shorter leg, you can highlight your assets in an eye-catching floral fabric. This blue-and-white blouse has become one of my absolute favorites this season (pairs perfectly with black for work, and jeans for weekend), and there’s nothing like a pair of floral shorts for all-season-long spring and summer wear.

Go All Out in a Pretty Dress

Dresses are always a go-to of mine because they are one-and-done options (and frankly, I love an outfit that I don’t have to think much about). I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to fashion but, while I tend to prefer daintier florals, I’ll give a bigger, bolder version a go every now and then, too!

Tie on a scarf

Scarves are perfect for adding pops of color without overwhelming your look. If wearing a bold color or print sounds too scary, try tying a scarf onto your handbag, around your neck, or in your hair for a smaller dose of spring.
