Floral prints have been around for centuries. Floral prints are said to have come from East Central Asia, in 12th century, which quickly spread to Middle East and Europe. Beginning of the Victorian era, the art of floral designs on fabrics had become a sign of elegance. However, today floral prints can symbolize a wider style statement – from laid back chic to elegant and glamorous.
Cuts and patterns may change, floral imprints on the outfits may go through an evolution, but flowers will always been an expression of femininity. Floral prints can come in numerous shades, density and patterns. From minimal to mute prints to summer dress to evening gowns, we have it all in floral print. Most times we pay very little attention to detail while picking the a floral outfit. But that is what I am here for, to take you through different floral prints and present you with options to help you pick out your new floral outfit for the season.
Although floral prints symbolize sunshine, spring, and summer, we do see flora in fall clothing as well. For this blog piece, I’m going to concentrate on floral prints for spring/summer.

Floral prints for a Bohemian chic look
“It makes sense wearing flowers to decorate our clothes; they are pretty, they are symbolic of femininity, and they show the beauty of the natural world.”
Major throwback to yesteryear floral prints. Time and again, we see, fashion houses finding inspiration in the bygone era keeping the trend alive.
While researching on my blog piece, I stumbled upon this picture. It is such a noteworthy assembly, in fact for some reason, this reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Taylor Swift is truly fashion forward but her overall look here is so simplistic yet so graceful and elegant.
Floral prints can define various different styles. It is important to pay attention to what you pair them with. It is also equally important to understand your style statement and body type while choosing fabrics and designs. Floral print skirts – any length and shape — look so chic and elegant when paired with a complementing single-color top.
Florals? For spring? Ground breaking – Miranda Priestly
Florals are no longer confined to spring/summer wear. We see celebs sporting floral prints all year round.
Mimicking celeb style is not a fashion taboo, but considering how your favorite celeb style relates to your own is worthwhile.
Now, going all floral can definitely make a statement but I would try not look like I’m wearing wallpaper from my grandma’s home, because I ain’t no Lady Gaga. Her persona manages to justify her style statement, which is a rarity.
For a full floral outfit, chose clothes that highlight your assets and complement your skin tone. It is certainly a safe bet to complement full floral outfits with accessories in the same shade or hue tone.
Going all in could sometimes be worth the risk. For a modern touch, go for a trendy floral mismatch assembly, but make sure there is some element in your outfit that ties the theme seamlessly.
Minimalistic approach can be just as bold and incredibly elegant.
