Floral patterns have always been attractive to me. They have been a constant staple in my wardrobe throughout my fashion journey. I even did a themed event every week for a little over a year called “Floral Friday”. Basically I wore something floral every single Friday of that year. Some days it was a floral blouse and others it was simply a pair of flower earrings. It was a good way for me to begin stretching and challenging myself in fashion. I knew every Friday that I would have to wear something floral, which would force me to be creative in new ways! I love challenging myself to do something new. For example, this past week I challenged myself to wear something each day from my closet that I had never worn before. It definitely stretched my creativity and also made me realize the reason I hadn’t worn some of these pieces is because I didn’t really like them to begin with. So off to Goodwill they went! Try challenging yourself here and there to stretch your creativity and help you pair something new!
Florals are an absolute must in your wardrobe, so I’m going to give you three reasons why you should stock up on these patterns, no matter the season. Florals don’t have to be just for spring and summer, you know. 😉
- Print Mixing: They are the perfect pattern for people who want to begin mixing more prints together. They are one of the easiest pattern to mix, second only to a simple stripe. Of course you have to consider color and style, but floral prints go so easily with such a wide variety of patterns that having a couple on hand when you are in the print mixing mood is a must!
- Femininity: Florals are a great way to add a feminine touch to an otherwise edgy or hard core outfit. A floral scarf paired with an all black outfit is sometimes all you need when you feel you should add a softer touch to your ensemble.
- Depth: Sometimes you look in the mirror and realize how boring the outfit you have put together is and desire something spicier! Floral pieces and accessories are a great way to spice up any bland outfit. A floral blouse with a pair of cool pants and some rocking boots definitely propels an outfit from bland to banging!
So don’t be scared to rock a floral pattern! With that being said, not every floral pattern is for everyone. There are literally a million patterns out there to choose from! So find a couple that work for you and make yourself throw them into your daily rotation. Let me know what you put together. 🙂
