If you do want to wear florals, especially if you have an occasion coming up and need some guidelines, below are my tops tips on how to wear florals.

  • Detract away from any areas you prefer not to show off. For example if you are pear shaped wear a plain colour on your bottom half and an off the shoulder floral top.
  •  If you are petite keep the scale of the print scale so that it doesn’t overwhelm you.
  • If florals are too fussy for you choose an item that has floral embroidery on one area.
  • Add floral shoes to a simple dress, but avoid doing double or even treble florals with a dress, shoes and bag.

As you will have seen in my Dallas blog post I wore a floral dress to one of the cocktail parties. Because it was an evening event I wore it with silver sandals and a silver clutch bag. For a daytime event I could add navy accessories and a navy camisole underneath it. This would be a perfect dress to wear for a wedding too.

I loved the floral dress below and did buy it to take to Dallas with me. However, the tie around the waist wasn’t right for me. If you do buy it, size down because it came up quite big. It has a beautiful swish to it with the delicate pleats.
