When the weather warms up, it's time to make some changes to your wardrobe. While winter fashion is ultra-cute with long boots and thermal leggings, a change in tempo is welcome after a few months. The emergence of florals in dresses, tops, bottoms, scarves, and bags is like a refreshing breeze on a fashion landscape that has been long dominated by neutrals and earthen tones. Just as flowers bring color back to the world during spring, so can incorporating florals into your wardrobe invigorate your seasonal style. Here's how to easily integrate florals into your closet.
You already have the leggings, short boots, and cardigans that you love from winter. Now, all that you need to put a little spring in your step is to exchange the chunky sweaters for something lighter. Long tunic tops easily replace the sweater in this ensemble and are easy to pull off. Explore tops with bright color backgrounds like pastel pink, white, robin's egg blue, and light green that exude the air of spring. These different colors will provide a variety of color schemes that diversify your styling potential. Fresh colors also bring back your favorite spring accessories that incorporate feathers, stones, pearls, and bold colors that easily complement your floral top.
Floral women's dresses are among the most anticipated items that women want to wear once winter is over. Depending on how spring is in your area, you may need to wear tights and cardigans in earlier parts of the season. The transition into spring can often feel like a tug-of-war with winter, especially in the first few weeks, so you may find that one day is perfect dress weather but then you need to wear a down jacket the next day. This is why it's a good idea to not pack away all your winter items until spring is in full swing.
As you shop for dresses, you'll find everything from cute, small florals to bold, big flower prints that capture the eye. Make sure that the dresses you pick are of the right materials for the weather. For example, polyester blends tend to trap heat more than 100% cotton, so if your area gets warm relatively quickly, stick to fabrics that breathe.
A great wardrobe has pieces that can add more depth and variety to your favorite outfits. Fashion scarves add a splash of color and pattern to an outfit without weighing it down. While winter scarves are made for fashion, function, and warmth, lightweight scarves are made for styling purposes. Do you have a plain white T-shirt that you'd like to jazz up with some prints? Then dress your neckline up with a floral fashion scarf that will still feel cool and breezy even as spring warms up to summer. A floral scarf naturally becomes the focal point of an outfit when there are no other prints to contend with. Imagine a pair of red jeans, a white shirt, and a floral scarf with hints of red in it. The scarf doesn't just complement the color scheme of the outfit, but it also draws attention to your neckline and face. It's an easy, fun way to bring spring style to your basics.
If you want to add more versatility to your favorite solid colored tops, then match them with floral skirts. The beautiful patterns draw attention to you with their bright colors and attractive look. Complete your outfit with a wide-brimmed hat and espadrille shoes or boots. See which skirt length suits you the best. Whether you like mid-thigh, knee-length, midi, or maxi, there is a style that you'll fall in love with. For some additional flair, get a skirt that you can belt at the waist. This will become a focal point at the smallest part of your natural waist and create a beautiful silhouette.
If your seasonal plans involve a little getaway to the Carribean or indoor water park, then you'll be delighted at the cute floral swimsuits you can integrate into your wardrobe. Enjoy wearing a matching floral tankini set or mix and match floral tops and bottoms with solid color swim separates. Floral prints have been in style season after season, so you can count on your swimsuit additions to last for years with proper care.
There are so many ways to wear this print that these options are just the beginning. How do you want to wear this seasonal pattern?
