With the first signs of Spring we see flowers blooming in our gardens and on floral dresses and tops. We love these flower prints because they are fun, colorful and visually interesting. Floral prints are a tried and true classic that never grows old, only better as fashions evolve.
Some of the dainty floral prints and big flower patterns that we see today are decades old, but their application in design is still fresh and invigorating. Today’s florals and eclectic styles reflect the modern woman and allow for abundant freedom of expression – but with freedom comes choices. And your styling choices can make or break an outfit.
Colorful and busy floral prints can be a challenge to accessorize but that’s no excuse for eliminating jewelry. Jewelry can elevate your look when done well. So what are the best ways to wear jewelry with florals?
Select one color from the floral pattern of your dress or blouse and accentuate it with your jewelry or make a more subdued choice by echoing the dominant color of the dress. A color combination you will see a lot of this year is Serenity blue and Rose Quartz pink. This serene palette lends itself to a classic floral look.
Gorgeous florals aren’t all pastels and frou frou. The floral trend is so pervasive now that we are seeing it in many different styles. This floral dress in earthy hues has a retro high fashion vibe that calls for something a little more adventurous like a sensual choker, bold collar or bib in coordinating colors.
Some of us believe that more is more; the appearance of embellishments and statement jewelry in fashion is a fabulous example of this. So why let a floral print hold you back when selecting your jewelry? To put together a look that works, choose one statement piece that mirrors the palette and or feel of your floral outfit, then layer on the loveliness.
If you’re wearing floral separates and want to accentuate the floral theme in your look, floral earrings are the answer. A fabulous pair of floral themed dangle earrings in one of the colors of your floral piece will bring attention to your face and pull your outfit together.
When you are wearing a colorful floral blouse you may not want your jewelry to compete with its busy pattern, so accessorize with rings and bracelets. Try a combination of cuffs and bangles or several of our magnetic wrap bracelets that can also be worn as layered necklaces.
Floral bags and shoes come in so many styles, from elegant to crafty or kitschy. No matter how refined, they always reflect an element of fun and deserve a proper playmate – a delightful floral statement necklace like our flower lariats.
When you wear a floral dress or top, what do you think of? I think of warm sunny days, fun nights out, romance and vacation. Our tips on how to wear jewelry with florals will create a look that is put together without being visually overwhelming. A spectacular floral outfit, especially when paired with one-of-a-kind jewelry, will elevate your confidence and mood. Why not look and feel your best each and every time you walk out the door?
