April 19, 2012: Florals are (yet again) paving their way to spring! With the bold color trends come a high-octane dose of flower power - from the necklace, to the sweater, and yes to the timeless floral dress, to the sandal and also the handbag.

Ditsy tea-party floral never goes out of style but if you want to refresh this print-trend then look for bigger versions of it and in other color combinations besides pink and white. To change it up a little try a tropic or an abstract theme!

Let's take a look at some of the latest chic floral pieces:

2 chic and effortless ways to wear floral

1. Focal point


Wearing the piece as your outfit's focal piece is a great way to bring attention to it and to the area you place it on. For example, bring attention to your hands and nails with a floral clutch; or highlight your legs with a pair of flower-power sandals.

It's also a good strategy for adding that unexpected punch to freshen up a basic outfit - like pairing a floral bag with a classy white dress shirt and sexy snake-print pumps.

You might also want to wear the floral piece with neutral clothes to really make it stand out.

2. Print mixing


I touched on this topic a few posts ago so click here if you need more in-depth fashion advice on how to look chic with a print-on-print outfit. You basically mix the floral piece with another print to create a fun, high-impact fashionista statement.

The trick is to make sure that the other print clothing is less or more competing than the other. For example, try colorful floral-print skirt with a timeless blue-and-white navy striped top - or how about taking it to the edge by combining a floral top with a leopard blazer, or the other way around?


What do you think - hit or miss? Chic or does it remind you of table cloths?
