Winter is heading out the door and ladies it is time to shave those legs and bring out the floral dresses.
When it comes to wearing floral prints, it can be quite an art to be able to pull off such a feat.
Here's some inspiration from our queens of Mzansi.
Choose the right size
Beware of super tiny flowers in one large pattern, they may make you look like you are wearing your PJs. Dress Like a Parisian says small flowers in liberty style are a safer option. If you love large prints remember to keep them simple and avoid looking like you should be hanging on a window.
Keep it simple
When you wear something floral, in particular a one-piece such as a dress or jumpsuit, keep accessories to a minimum.
Show your assets
For the fuller figure women who want to appear smaller, go with smaller patterns. The Salwa Owens website suggests using patterns to draw attention to your best assets. Don’t like your thighs but want to try wearing white pants? Wear them with a floral print top and that will detract from your bottom half. Having a bloated day? Wear a solid black top with some floral print pants.
Don’t mix prints
If you want to be bold, add an edgy piece like a leather jacket, to your floral, but don’t add another print that competes.
