It’s been a while since the last style post and I have a reason for that. You know I don’t like to dress up, right? So, the only time I’m motivated to take pictures is when I have an event to attend. And last weekend provided an opportunity I couldn’t pass off.
It was the Eid weekend and my sister and I got to wear dresses with floral prints. She made her dress herself, I’m so proud of her growth as a tailor.
The floral trend isn’t anything new but it is always trending, season after season. What is it about floral print that every girl loves? It’s hard to know.
I think part of the reason I love floral is because of how versatile it is. Florals can make you feel sweet and feminine, but you can also style them to be edgy and tough. You can get a large floral print, small floral print, mix-match florals, or just a floral accent. The possibilities are truly endless. Not to mention, there is just something about floral prints that is happy. And, when you wear florals you immediately feel happier because of it.
Today I’m going to share my new favourite floral dress and then give you some awesome tips on how to choose a flattering print.
Choosing a print that is flattering and complimentary to your body and style is essential. Small flowers or large, spaced apart or close together, with or without vines or clusters of blossoms, and in what color palette? The choices are literally infinite.
A point to note about color is that often the print will lean to a particular side of the color chart, from red, blue, black to pastels, darks, brights, metallics, and more. This is the host background color of the pattern.
Consider that larger flowers are more flattering to petite body types. Oversized floral patterns may add a few pounds to your silhouette and thus are not recommended for shapely women. Smaller flowers and floral patterns give the impression of a solid and are recommended for average to more shapely body types.
If your body type is slim to average consider exploring a balance of larger floral patterns and smaller patterns. When unsure if the pattern is flattering try to break up the pattern with a belt or trendy scarf.
Also be sure to consider the host background color of your floral dress. White backgrounds that display bright and sunny inspired blooms are ideal for concealing problem bulges.(that’s why I chose my dress, I was going on a eating spree) Darker backgrounds give you a more tailored and tapered look to give your body the illusion of being more slim.
