In Full Bloom

“Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” Remember Miranda Priestly’s {The Devil Wears Prada} infamous words? But in reality, what is summer without its fair share of flowers? So this summer; like every other summer before it, you would not be fashionably incorrect to wear florals. The trick though; is to avoid looking dated or out-of-style in your floral selection. Lucky for us, fashion designers, editors and stylist world over have offered us some trendy style bouquets. Pick a floral style of your liking-all over print, embroidered motif, flowers inspired from paintings, floral accessory, ect...- and accordingly style your look. Due to its popularity and versatility, this trend is multi-functional as well as multi-occasional. A floral piece can easily worn to work or a weekend away.To college and cocktail party. It pretty much goes with every dress code. With limitless styling, variegated color palette-from neon to pastel- to pair with and print mixing as the flavor of the season, one can hardly ever go wrong it. 
Here are few of my floral styling suggestions.
The print mix trend has made a follower out of me. Mixing floral pieces- dress, clutch and statement flower necklace- this is my version of the modern 'English Rose' look. Ladies, you are all set for your tea party.
If you have been reading my blog, by now you must know I am a colour-holic. I love colours in all their tints, tones, shades and hues. No post of mine is complete without a colour happy look. Combining on-trend bright colours-tangerine and hot pink- with Boho elements-maxi skirt and chunky jewelry, you can easily wear this look for a working brunch or weekend party. {If large or statement floral prints; as the dress above, are not your thing, you can opt for small over all floral spray print, like this maxi skirt}
If print is not your thing, then you can choose floral embroidered pieces. Pair a floral {appliqué} embroidered skirt with an embellished tank and contrasting jacket for a casual night out or a dinner date.

Personally, I love this trend. One of the reasons being it works very well with Western as well as Indian wear. Plus, a floral piece is a staple of every girl's wardrobe. All in all it is one of those eternal fashion trends that can never really go out of style.
