Pretty feminine floral prints are perfect for spring, however, you have to be careful to limit them to one main focal point in your outfit so you don’t look like a poorly upholstered sofa from the ’70s. We suggest wearing this trend in discrete places, like on shoes, handbags or accessories, where a bright pop of color adds pizazz to an otherwise basic ensemble.
Here are a few statement pieces we love, plus suggestions on how to wear them.
Allover Floral Scarf ($5 @ UrbanOutfitters.com): Wear a skinny scarf or tie as a belt for an impeccable combination of crisp white and bold color. We suggest these Gap Cotton linen pants and Puff-sleeve button-front shirt.
Arielle Peep-Toe Platform Slingback ($45 @ BakersFootwear.com): These darling satin platforms would look perfect with a solid-colored sundress like this Old Navy Matte Jersey Surplice in syrah. *Deal Alert* Buy one pair of sandals at Bakers and get the second pair 50 percent off.
Life’s A Beach Floral Canvas Beach Bag ($32 @ eBags.com): This sunny yellow tote would be a great shopper when you take a stroll through the farmer’s market on a lazy Sunday in this Mossimo Black: Crossover Linen Dress.
