The Spring 2010 runways were littered with gorgeous floral prints. From Chanel and Christian Dior to DKNY and Oscar de la Renta, floral patterns and prints were a huge hit!
Floral prints and flowered touches are a great way to add a feminine flair to your outfit. The best part is that this trend will work on every body shape, regardless of weight and height.
Choose floral prints that match the scale of your frame. If you’re petite and thin, choose small, delicate floral prints. If you normally shop in the plus size section, opt for large floral print maxi dresses for a summery look. You can also choose floral accessories or shoes like these fabulous Born Gladiolus Sandals in Orange ($87.00).
Florals For Every Body Shape
Pear Shape: Wear floral prints mainly on your top half to help balance your hips and bring attention to your face.
Apple Shape: Wear floral prints mainly on your bottoms half to help balance your large bust and broad shoulders.
Slim Shape: Wear a floral print dress that has a defined waist. Add a thin belt at the smallest part of your waist to create the illusion of an hourglass figure and minimize any muffin tops.
Hourglass Shape: Wear floral prints freely. Choose a floral print dress and pair with a belt to accentuate your small waist. If you wear floral prints just on top, make sure bottoms match in proportion – Loose fit cuff shorts with a floral blouse.
