How to Wear Florals

With the arrival of spring comes the inevitable resurgence in florals and if you choose yours carefully and wear them with self-assurance then the coming months will see you bloom.

This spring many of the floral looks are set to be big and bold, with bright vintage colours, psychedelic shades and 1970s-inspired prints all making it into the shops.

Those in clothing modelling and catalogue modelling may well also come across cuts that feel straight out of bygone eras – the swinging sixties and funky seventies.

Look out for flared trousers, maxi dresses and mini-skirts featuring abstract florals in vibrant and often clashing colours.

In Full Flower

Those looking into how to become a fashion model may well wish to make a statement and choosing one item of clothing in strong florals should strike the right note.

A well-selected piece of clothing or accessory will have longevity and serve to enhance any wardrobe in all sorts of different ways.

Young or old, male or female, you should find florals can really brighten any look.

And plus size models and curvy models should not be afraid of flowery prints either – wear them with conviction and use them to show how much you shine. 

Start with Accessories

Those nervous of florals can always start small. Snap up a bag, belt, hat or scarf and use to accent your overall look.

Pick up on any unusual colours in the florals and wear it as a block shade in your shirt, t-shirt or dress.

Take it Up a Level

A well-cut floral shirt is a look that can be pulled off by both male and female models – and you will be no different if you choose carefully.

Try a subtle floral if large shapes and strong colour is not for you, just make sure the fit is good and you team it up well with a simple skirt or pair of trousers.

Tone your floral shirt down a little if you need to by topping it off with a plain jacket.

Dress to Impress

Finally, if you feel ready to go all out for the floral look this season, peruse some of the great dresses that are out there.

You should find casual and special occasion wear in all sorts of fabulous flowing styles, from spring and summer sun dresses to more formal frocks for weddings, christenings and garden parties.

Find many of these are versatile and, once again, can be dressed up or down as the mood takes you. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment – remember you can always lower the impact of a floral print with a cardigan on chilly spring days.

Wear with heels and a smart jacket for work or other formal occasions and trainers or flat boots to carry that boho weekend style.  

Team up with a pair of flip flops or strappy sandals and a plain sun hat for a day at the beach or an afternoon in the park and find your floral dress carries you nicely through those summer months as well.
