Spring has officially started and we are seeing more and more floral prints that go with it so how to wear the floral dress ? Romantic, “Little House on the Prairie”…these are some terms that can describe the floral dresses. It is not to everyone’s taste and yet it is a piece that can be very nice to wear. Here are a few tips !
How to wear the floral dress ?
Depending on the tastes of everyone, the floral dress will be accessorized differently for a unique look. If you bet on a rather sober look, the floral dress will be worn with the essential heels sandals or wedge espadrilles and the matching bag. If you want more daring, you can break this girly piece with a more rock register like ankle boots or biker boots that are making a comeback and a leather perfecto. The floral dress can also be worn in a much more casual way with a pair of canvas tennis shoes such as Converses and a denim jacket.
An extremely important element when we wear a dress (even if this advice is valid for all your wardrobe), it is essential to choose the right lingerie. Indeed, the wrong bra will not offer the pretty curve at the level of the chest that we like to have. Or, if our underwears are too tight, it may cause a fold in the hips and mark the dress. Do not hesitate to wear sculpting lingerie to obtain the most harmonious look. If you suffer from thighs that rub and with the arrival of spring, you no longer want to wear tights, bet on the panties that go down mid-thighs or small shorts. I found mine at Calida which is a Swiss brand of extremely good quality.
Which floral dresses to choose ?
There is something for all silhouettes and all tastes : from liberty print, to large arty flowers, colorful, monochrome, long, short, with ruffles, without it, etc.
In terms of morphology, I can advise you that a pattern with large flowers that covers the entire dress is more suitable for slim women who want to round and give thickness to their silhouette. Conversely, smaller and finer patterns can be used to draw or divert attention to a part of our body. These dresses are perfect for curvy women who want to grab attention.
Personally, I rather like small patterns in basic colors, like here navy blue. The design is fine and looks like a watermark that catches the eye.
The accessories with the floral dress
As I said, depending on the “vibe” you want to give to your look, you will not choose the same accessories.
For a bohemian look such as Coachella vibe, bet on the long floral dress a little wide that you belt to give more structure to the silhouette.
If you have a slightly marked waist (type H silhouette), also wear a belt to accentuate this part of your body.
From the first rays of the sun, put on XXL sunglasses to give a very fashionable effect to your floral dress. This will confirm your look and your personality !
When it comes to jewelry, flower dresses can be at risk. I would invite you not to be redundant and to wear “flowery” jewelry that will give a slightly too romantic look. Bet on unexpected, strong pieces, etc.
The advice to remember when it comes to accessories is to bet on basic colors for a sharp and chic look : nude tones (beige, cream, camel), shades of gray and black which serve to temper the print. The bag and the shoes can take on a major color of the floral print.
