Remixing Florals

One of the trickier summer trends to style is floral patterns. Trying too hard to match the pattern with the rest of your outfit could result in you looking like a garden. Here’s a how-to guide on tackling this flirty trend for both the rest of the summer and the fall!

Floral is a very whimsical and fun pattern, so play off it with the other items of your outfit! Don’t be afraid to incorporate other minor floral patterns with your other pieces, but never match the pattern exactly! Use the colors of the flowers on these gorgeous DSW wedges as the inspiration for the rest of your outfit.

Choose cute and summery colored denim cutoffs paired with a rose-colored floral sweater. Matching the shoes with this floral shirt is okay because these flowers are much more subtle! For daytime, opt for a cute complementary backpack, like this one in a varying floral pattern. Take this look from day to night by switching the backpack for a cute shoulder bag.

Lastly, offset the femininity of this look by choosing a pair of masculine-looking aviators to give your outfit some edge!
