How to wear: Florals!

This season floral has been BIG. And it has no  sign of slowing down. 
Here are some tips on incorporating this trend even if you don't have a green thumb:

Go tropical
It's summer so we are all dreaming of escaping on a tropical getaway. Get the look without the plane ticket! Exotic floral prints are perfect for those suffering from serious wanderlust..
(Dress. Sunglasses. Purse. Heels.)

90s throwback
So if you aren't a super fan of super sweet blooms, consider a throwback print. Take it back to the 90s with sunflower and daisy prints. These prints are perfect for a 90s grunge inspired ensemble..  

Big prints? One piece
Are you a go big or go home type of gal? When picking big prints try to stick to one printed piece in your outfit. Big prints are fun but can be a little overwhelming with combined with more. Keep everything else simple and complementary..

Mix  it up!
Want to tackle two trends at once? Pair a small floral print with another print. Whats the trick to matching prints? Make sure they have the same overwhelming colors. In this outfit the floral print has a lot of pink and the plaid print also has a lot of pink. Try to stick to smaller or simpler prints. If one or both of the prints are too big and busy, the patterns may clash.

Always accessorize.
So if you love this trend but your closet is already full (is that possible?) the best way to get the look is to add accessories. Pretty floral crowns and cute floral print bags can instantly add this trend onto your existing favorite outfits.
