Florals are always a big hit in summers and the norm is to have them in pastels, soft and light colours. But this summer the scene is totally different and pastel flowery print makes way for shocking, bright and neon tones that gives you total festival feel.
It is time to give your wardrobe a garden makeover and use all the bright and pleasant hues that you can lay your hands on. Purples, oranges, yellows, pinks, reds, browns, maroons, greens, blues and many other colours teamed with huge prints of flowers is the flavour of the season. You just can't ignore the charm and will surely fall in love with the roses, orchids, tulips, daffodils and daises that are on offer.
Tops, tunics, dresses, gowns, leggings, kurtis, and even pants in bold prints in these days. The trend is so hot that you can even wear prints from head-to-toe and can get with it. Pairing them right is the funda to look gorgeous.
Sharmila Mhatre a designer who runs a boutique here says, "Florals never go out of trend and the best time to wear them is in summers. This summer try bold and shocking colours and see what a head turner you make for. Pair brighter floral tops with solid coloured skirts, pants and leggings. If you are going for a darker floral dress then make sure tone down on accessories."
Whatever garment it is, when it has flowers than it should have simple silhouette. Too much of patterns and the bold prints can make the dress look really busy.
Coloured blocked floral prints are the best bet this season and stores are full of these dresses that comes in yummy pink, fuchsia, red, green, yellow, magenta, aubergine and so on. Not only dresses, but flowers on shoes,, bags, sandals, hair bands, peep-toes, wedges, pumps is also in big time. When teamed with happy colours, these prints look so charming that you can hardly resist them.
Adds Mhatre, "Florals from head-to-toe is in too but you have to be very careful with the prints that you are opting for. Bold prints should be minimal while softer prints can be worn top-to-toe."
Ladies with plus size should opt for minimal and delicate prints while those who are petite should go for bolder ones suggests Sharmila.
