fashion trend into their wardrobe will be thrilled to learn
some of the basic principles of organizing an attire that is
crowned by floral prints.
Color: Depending on personal preferences and especially
the effect we wish to create choosing the color of floral prints
will determine the overall appearance. Consequently the basic
outfit items should be selected according to the style of the look.
In case of sporting a moderate attire preferably opt for print
colors that blend into the base tone of the top or the dress. This
will secure a uniform and more classic impression. On the other
hand those who are fond of glam can match contrastive tones as the
best means to stand out of the crowd.
Both the size and design of the patterns should play an important role when choosing the right print. The latest trends offer endless inspiration to plan an overwhelming outfit in both variations. Feel free to experiment with the accessories and additional details. However professionals recommend cutting back on jewelry and statement accessories. Instead concentrate on the shoes and handbags that would make the best impression when being in a mono-colored design and a complementary color with the warm or cold-tones appearance of the whole outfit.
Body ShapeOne of the buzzwords when talking about floral
prints is 'proportion'. Various body shapes should adopt a
different attitude to planning an outfit according to the
characteristic features of their silhouette. Therefore it is highly
recommended to choose the best print size and style to complement
your look. This way it must be mentioned that petite ladies should
adopt the mini-floral print trend since this won't add some
extra-pounds to their figure.
Moreover those who struggle with the signs of weight gain should also skip the large prints and go for the smaller flower designs. It is important to consider the prominence a maxi-flower pattern might give us. Those who are not satisfied with their parameters should go for the moderate compositions. Choose your best assets as the perfect spot to place the prints, this will immediately attract the attention to your qualities.
Fabric: The season promotes the beauty and
season-appropriateness of the softened and breezy fabrics. Some
might not feel confident enough when sporting these especially if
they struggle with disproportions. However it seems that silk and
chiffon are some of the must have materials of the spring and
look thinner and alluring therefore it is advisable to purchase
dresses and tops that are further decorated either with smaller or
statement floral prints.
Choose the best fabric depending on your body shape. Make sure you have the proper dimension and volume on the critical spots to camouflage the beauty flaws. Those who were blessed with a slim figure can wobble between the extra-large and body-conscious creations that would add a high brow tint to their appearance.The fabrics mentioned above will look fabulous paired with the graphic as well as water painting-style flower is all tones and sizes.
