Floral dresses are great for spring and summer. They come in various styles and can be worn during any year’s season. Here are some tips on how to style a floral dress based on your body type, occasion, and budget.
Wrap a chunky cardigan around your waist and show off the belt.
The great thing about floral dresses is that it’s very flexible. If you want to show off your belt, wrap a chunky cardigan around your waist. If you want more of an edge, try adding boots or heels instead of flats. Another option would be sunglasses—just remember not to forget the sun protection.And if you feel like standing out from the crowd, try adding a hat or scarf with the dress (and maybe even some jewellery).
Pair it with a belt with a bow.
If you’re going for a casual look, try pairing your floral dress with a belt with an embellished bow. The best thing about this is that you can wear the belt over the dress or under it depending on what look you want to achieve. If you want something more versatile, opt for an elastic waistband instead of a regular one so that it can be worn under or over your top (or even underneath another piece of clothing).
You could also accessorise with jewellery like necklaces, bracelets, and shoes! You can find some great options at Nordstrom Rack if all else fails: they always have new items coming in and stock up on clearance items throughout the year, so there’s always something new to see every time I go shopping there!
Layer it under a sweater.
If you love the look of floral dresses but want to keep them warm, wear one underneath a sweater. This will create a contrasting look when you pull the sweater off or have someone else remove it for you. If you’re wearing something more revealing, like a tank top or crop top under your dress, this is an ideal way to bring attention to your outfit while still being conservative enough to be worn in public.
Accessorise with bold earrings.
To ensure your look is visually cohesive, accessorise with bold earrings. This can be as simple as wearing a pair of earrings the same colour as your belt or purse, but it’s also possible to go big and match them to the dress itself.
The key here is not to overdo it; floral prints are busy enough on their own without any additional attention-grabbing accessories. If you want to add more than one statement piece at once, stick with one bold accessory for each outfit item (i.e., one necklace for the top).
Style it with a delicate purse.
When it comes to purses, the possibilities are endless. You can buy a plain one for $20 or splurge on one that costs several hundred dollars. How much you spend is up to you, but there’s no reason a floral dress needs only minimal accessories when something as simple as a purse can make all the difference in your outfit.
If you’re not sure what kind of purse would look good with your dress (or if you’d like some inspiration), take a look at some other ways people have styled their dresses:
Add a structured blazer for an edgy contrast.
A blazer can be styled in so many ways. It could be worn over a dress to add structure or under the dress for more coverage. It can also be worn with jeans and heels, or pants and flats. You can even wear it with a scarf if you want to add some fun colour.
That’s it! You can now wear your floral dresses in style. As you can see, there are many different ways to style the floral dress, and each one looks beautiful. So, don’t hesitate to try it out.
