How to wear florals?
.
From full length gowns to cute smocks - everyone can wear this trend for every occassion. You can go chic and minimalistic (like Kristen Bell in Stella McCartney) or cute and quaint (like Natasha Poonawalla).

- If you don't want a very feminine look, try a floral print in darker colours (Peter Som runway collection above) instead of choosing dainty pastel florals.

- For a more casual look pair it with opaque tights in blacks or greys (this floral look can be worn even in winters).

- For evenings make it dressy with sophisticated feminine accessories.
.
Which is the right floral print for you?

The right floral print for you would be in proportion to your body. If you're petite then big floral prints are a complete no-no for you. If you're tall and slender, you can wear all kinds of floral prints - bold, smaller, discreet, they all would look great on you. Bigger women should also avoid bold and big floral prints and pick smaller prints to slim you down.

Wearing Florals in winters
.
Reign your winter wardrobe with florals - layer summer floral dress with a smart jacket or a cardigan to cover from the chill and team it with heeled boots for extra protection.
.
Darker coloured floral dress work great for the winters - team it with bright fun coloured accessories for summers and chic somber colours for winters. Light on the wallet and still fashionable.

Give your floral dress an edgier look by pairing it with a tough accessories and military jackets.
.
Make a statement with floral accessories
Floral print accessories are a great way to wear the floral trend. Floral scarves or floral print bags will brighten up your look without looking over the top, and the best part is it will make a very smooth transition from your summer to winter ensemble without thinking much on how to wear the look.
