Get your warm weather wardrobe ready for sunny summer days with fun florals from Downtown Threads!
The neon needlepoint tank top and pinstriped shorts I styled above gave off a breezy, feminine vibe that really surprised me. The moss colored shorts played off the hints of green in the top’s print while helping to soften up the neon and tie the whole look together. Just add a cute denim jacket, pointy toe flats and your ready for fun in the sun!
I love this blouse, the print is a great combination of neutral colored safari/animal print with a smattering of bright florals. This blouse is perfect if you want to add a hint of color to a neutral look or balance out a color blocked ensemble look like the one I put together above. The eyelet detailing on the shorts and bright blue leather button up add depth to this look and really make this blouse’s print pop. The leather blue button up really made this outfit for me, I love when staple pieces are done in unexpected color and fabric combinations, it adds a whole new element to the look and gives you a ton of options.
After taking these pictures I had a hard time not striping this look off the mannequin and immediately putting it on. The feminine print and cut of the dress took on a chic Parisian prairie vibe (that I loved!) with the blouse layered underneath. When mixing a bold floral print with another equally strong pattern keep the rest of your look simple. Avoid busy accessories and bulky or loose pieces as these will make your outfit look disheveled. To accessorize this look I opted for solid color heels and a simple sun hat so the pattern mixing could really shine.
This navy and rose print dress is fabulous on it’s own but really pops when set against a classic striped blouse with ruffle detailing. This layered look is great for chillier spring days and perfect for making the transition from the office to after work drinks with the girls.
This is a great look to try if you like florals but can’t get pasted the feminine, “frou-frou” prints. There’s no denying this nude lace tank with floral detailing is sexy but it’s also practical. You can wear and layer this piece with the rest of your spring wardrobe and Downtown Threads has it in a ton of different colors. Speaking of colors, the skirt’s bold abstract print provides the perfect focal point (especially when paired with the nude tank) and I love how the it can be worn as a sleek wrap skirt (left) or with a bit of the materiel free for a more laid back look. Keep it chic by accessorizing this look with a tailored white blazer and gladiator sandals or play up the beach vibe with a floppy straw hat and fun wedges.
Since there is such a variety of styles when it comes to florals there is something for every shape, style and size. Don’t be afraid to try out different prints and patterns, afterall spring is a time for renewal and reawakening!
How are you mixing floral prints into your warm weather wardrobe? Do you prefer the delicate, feminine florals or are you drawn to bolder blossoms?
