Flower Power
Nail the Floral Look

Spring-Summer is here and that means only one thing – out with the winter boots and sweaters and in with the summer frocks and sandals! Whether you’re gunning for an all-out 70s bohemian look with long, flowy maxis and gladiator sandals or you’re going for 60s grace and elegance with pastel frocks and pearl earrings, there are plenty of options to choose from or mix-and-match!

All you’ve to do is choose a style that will not only suit your body type, but also your personality; and of course pick out the right accessories to nail that floral look!

60s Demure Diva – Pastel frocks and Pearls: You’re glamorous and polished to a fault. You believe that elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered. The trend in early 60s was all about hourglass-shape dresses that cinch in the waist and hips. Women in that era loved buttoned up blouses, cashmere cardigans, fake eyelashes and pearls… lots and lots of pearls!
Tip: Stay away from flowers that are black, grey or are in other dull, faded colours. Summer is the time to play with vibrant floral prints.

70s Boho Chic – Loose, flowy maxis and long skirts: You’re a born hippie. You would rather have flowers in your hair than diamonds around your neck. Freedom of motion – that’s what defines bohemian style. Loose, comfortable clothing that has all the pure aesthetics of nature along with funky elements of fashion. Gypsy skirts, maxi dresses, peasant blouses, gladiator sandals, beaded accessories, more or less that’s what sums up the boho-chic look. Tip: If you’re petite or have a smaller frame, you should stick to small floral prints to look tall. Similarly, taller girls should opt for bigger prints.

90s Atta Girl – Sundresses and shorts: You are who you are. You don’t mince your words. You say what you feel, you do what you want and hell yeah, you wear what you want! Gen-Y style focusses more on comfort than couture; it’s primarily about effortless style. That’s why short, playful summer dresses goes best with this look. Throw in a few oversized sunglasses, beach slip-ons and a sling bag, and you’re set for the season!
Tip: Do not even think about covering yourself in floral prints from top to toe; it’s a faux pas you don’t want to make. If you’re wearing denim shorts, go with a floral top. If you’re wearing a flowery dress, accessorise with a monochrome bag or a jacket.
