Floral patterns are on-trend this year, as they have been in years past, and likely will be in the future. If you want to get on board with this flourishing trend, fashion expert, Nicola Loewen, has some style tips for you!
How to Wear: Edgy Florals
While many of us tend to associate floral patterns with ultra-feminine pieces, Nicola agrees, the two don’t necessarily have to go hand-in-hand. To incorporate florals into an edgier look, Nicola recommends opting for a darker and/or larger-scale floral. For instance, a floral comprised of mostly blacks and greys will lend the garment a graphic-print-vibe. To complete your edgy look, simply add in an edgy accessory, such as a black booty or a leather jacket.
How to Wear: Mixed Prints
In this day and age of versatile style, mixing prints is more than acceptable – in fact, it’s fashion forward. Here are a few tips to help you mix prints effectively: keep the scales of your mixed prints relatively similar, keep your prints in the same color palette, and pay attention to the overall balance of your outfit, particularly the proportions your pieces create.
How to Wear: Embroidered Floral
Embroidery is hugely trendy this season – and for good reason! In addition to being trendy, embroidery introduces floral prints in a new, edgy, and unexpected way. If you find traditional, all-over floral to be too girly, embroidered floral accents could be the way to go for you. In keeping with the bohemian vibe that’s trademark of embroidered floral, opt for loose, flowing garments that incorporate embroidery, and pair with contemporary wardrobe staples, such as a leather or denim jacket.
