5 Ways to Wear Floral Patterns
This spring, flowers will be blooming everywhere. Nothing new about that? These florals will be popping up outside your yard: on pants, skirts, dresses, and more. Look for bouquets in bold and bright colors, or in watercolor pastels, as shown here. Try pairing florals with stripes in the same color family. And allow the pattern to be the star: Ground it with shoes in neutrals and metallics.
