How To Wear Jewelry With Florals

Roslyn Fashion & Jewelry: Your Life in Color Spring, Style

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?


Choosing a Necklace for Classic Floral Dresses

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.

Statement Jewelry for Floral Dresses

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.

  1. I’ve always been a fan of florals and haven’t had any challenges pairing my bracelets and necklaces with them. I generally wear many bracelets and do match the colours in the floral print with the colours of my bracelets. Same with my necklace choices. Having always been a jewelry person, it comes quite naturally for me to match up something that visually works. My mother has always been someone to match her jewelry with her outfits to, and although she isn’t so much of a floral print person, I think I learned the matching lesson from her. Glad to see florals are still in style and back in vogue too. Love the jewelry you matched to the outfits as well, Roslyn.

      I think we do pick up fashion habits, choices, interests when we are young. After all, our mother dressed us, so most likely she bought our clothes. Was curious if you liked floral design & obviously you do. It can be tricky for someone who is not a big jewelry lover as you.

  2. Beautiful combinations. I have always tended toward solids, but have to rethink this now. I love the beautiful jewelry and those shoes… Yup. Thank you for opening my eyes to these beautiful outfits and jewelry combinations.

  3. What great combinations of jewelry and florals. I don’t wear much floral clothing, but if I ever have anything on that’s “busy” I tend to shy away from necklaces. I’ll have to give it try next time.

  4. I so often avoid wearing jewellery when I’m in florals as I think it will be too busy, but I love your ideas, especially the colour choices. I can see how the right choice can actually enhance the outfit and the accessories. Florals also make me think of summer and holidays – I love the bright, happy colours. Nixie and Raina – absolutely gorgeous – I love the pics of all your beautiful jewellery.

      Appreciate your enthusiastic response to this and all our blogs. AS a creative, artistic woman Tamuria, we are so pleased to be able to contribute to you.

  5. I love all of these flower patterns. When I go shopping I always have an issue with finding one I love. So I stick with plain old solids and maybe a little flower patterns. I know for me bright yellow and neon colored flowers don’t look good at all on me. It is frustrating. Thanks for sharing.

      When young Debbie Denny, your mom chose florals for you. The style has never grown out of fashion & is there for you as an adult. try it again as you might really like it.

  9. I picked up so many tips with your post!!! I would usually just wear metals with a floral print because I thought beaded jewelry would conflict. Now I have even more combinations now. Thanks for the wonderful post.

  10. Floral patterns are so hard to figure out how to accessorize Roz… I would probably wear very simple, gold or silver jewellery. However, you showed us that there are other alternatives. These are great ideas, thank you!

      Delia, your experience is the traditional way to wear jewelry with florals. Many fashion bloggers & other jewelry silver designers recommend that, but we saw a possibility to broaden the options, hence this blog. Glad you got some ideas from it.

  11. The Raina necklace and that 70’s floral look is killer. This entire article makes me ready for spring to hurry up and arrive.

  14. I used to wear floral prints when I was younger and match them with solid 1 contrasting gemstone jewelry. Nowadays my passion is to find pieces of jewelry in the form of leaves and flowers to enhance the outfit that I am wearing. I loved Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz Pink ensemble. I used to have a dress like that one but in Peacock Blue. Ah, nostalgia!

  15. I love the Pink Berry “Whimsicals”: 2.5″ Petal Earrings. I have always preferred long earrings and I do really like how spring like they look. I also love the Cotton Candy: 18″ Orchid Colored Jewelry Set. I would need that necklace in a longer length-18″ is like a choker on me–and I don’t like chokers-other then that it is so very pretty.

  16. I’ve wondered about how to accessorize with floral prints. I tend to go with simple, so my choice would be plain beads/stones in an accenting color. The bags and shoes are WAY out of my comfort zone…and honest, I have no desire to leave this particular zone. πŸ˜‰

      Not to fret as you should stay inside your comfort zone Jackie Harder. And you are right on with jewelry & floral prints. Somehow I imagine florals being very popular in Florida.

  17. Thank you for your insights. I tend to shy away from jewlery with a floral print, this helps shine even more beauty.

      Natasha Botkin, that was our suspician. Many women shy away from jewelry with florals cause it can be tricky. Gad we were able to shed some light on it.

  18. Roslyn, Your descriptions and your pairings are just so absolutely spot on and enticing. I love this post. Even my 2-year old daughter reached for the floral prints – timeless and feminine! xo, Reba

      Jess Benoit, what I’ve learned since creating jewelry is that we do have a sense of what fashions work best for each of us. It may not be high fashion or walkway, but it is your style.

      So Kristen Wilson, I would love for you to be sporting an Earth and Moon Design, so I have added a black/purple wrap bracelet to our list. I’ll give you first dibs, however if you really want it, its best I have your wrist measurement. The wrap can go around a few times, but a basic measurement (you might have wrist big bones) with a little slack for comfort. Let me know.

      Jamie, statement necklaces or as we have shown here, floral prints do take some thought, but with tips and practice, can be done. And then you really acquire a whole new look.

  22. Roslyn – that Clementine: Carnelian Bracelet is a masterpiece. It could be worn in any season, with casual to more formal. I simply love the color combinations. I would tend to NOT wear it with those same colors of clothing, however. I’m not a real Matchy-matchy kind of dresser, but I could see me wearing a peach colored top with the rich browns & ambers of the Clementine piece – & feeling polished & put-together!

      Thanks, Joan Potter for your ideas. I love the outfit you created for Clementine and I’d wear it too. Very earthy. I bet if you had time from your nursing career, you would enjoy being a fashion blogger.

      Welcome Renee Groskreutz to our blog. It is a good idea to know you have jewelry you like with a new outfit. It takes a bit of practice to switch things up and it is worth it because it gives your outfits new looks. And just as you try out options when shopping, you can do that at home with what you already own.

  23. Roz, this is great! I, too like the concept of choosing one color from the floral pattern and accenting with jewelry. Thanks for getting me excited about all the florals coming for Spring and Summer – I can look to pair my earthandmoondesign.com jewelry with new dresses!

      So pleased Hope Stanger that this article pleased and excited you. I continue to see so many lovely florals I know you will have a good time shopping. Thanks for your comment.

  24. Floral shirts / blouses and accessories are my favorites not only during Spring but every season. Especially those days with rain, snow and fog a floral purse for example can literally boost my mood and make me smile!

      How nice Zaria that you use florals to keep your spirits up and it seems they are a wardrobe staple for you. I personally, do need to introduce more florals into my wardrobe. It can brighten up my outfits. Thanks for your comment.
