In the memorable words of Miranda Priestly 'Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.' Although we are talking about florals for summer, the statement still stands. The sarcasm is dripping off this comment and we know that florals are nothing new for summer style.
But, if it's not broke, why fix it?
Summer is the perfect time to break out your favourite floral prints. At Style Boutique NI, we love incorporating floral patterns into our summer wardrobe. From dainty daisies to bold blooms, there is a floral print out there for everyone.
In this blog post, we'll share some of our top tips for wearing summer florals and how to wear them well! We will also be showing you a few of out favorite floral items!
We can be afraid of bold prints more often than not! We tend to shy away from them and worry they are too 'loud', but at the end of the day what you wear is a reflection of yourself! Wearing bold, fun prints such as florals can really boost your mood!
Firstly, consider the size of the print. Smaller prints are perfect for those who prefer a more subtle look, while larger prints make a bold statement. If you're unsure, try mixing and matching different sizes of floral prints for a fun and playful look.
Next, think about the colours. While pastel hues are perfect for a delicate and feminine look, bold and bright colours are perfect for making a statement. You can also experiment with different colour combinations, such as pairing pink and green or blue and yellow.
When it comes to styling, there are endless possibilities. A floral maxi dress is perfect for a summer wedding or a day out with friends, while a floral blouse paired with jeans is perfect for a casual day out. Don't be afraid to mix and match different prints and colours to create a unique look that reflects your personal style.
