We get it. Florals are popular. And no one here is complaining, however, there’s a pretty particular way to wear them in order to maintain a grown-up appearance and stay away from girly girly territory.
Because a floral pattern is typically classic, the secret is to accessorize with modern pieces. Try shoes with chunky heels in an unexpected hue. If the dress allows for it, opt for a thick belt to make your look more form-fitting. (Even if the dress is a wrap, as above, you can still belt if the material is thin enough.)
Keep jewelry bold with a simple wooden cuff, and stuff summer makeup into a structured straw clutch.
