Wear your florals right
>> Don't overdo the outfit. If it's a floral shirt, team it with plain skirt or pants, simple jewellery like a metal chain and a simple purse.

>> If you're wearing the trend to work avoid bows and ruffles

>> Long floral dresses work best with slim belts and a neutral jacket

>> Neon florals dont' work anywhere but at the beach or an outdoor brunch

>> Opt for some 'fringing' on your tops or shirt for a lighter vibe
