Bright bold florals are one of the key trends in a season overflowing with print, pattern and color. While they can be intimidating to wear, you can get the look easier than you’d think. The trick to wearing these bright bold florals is to have them take center stage - and to build the rest of the look around the colors in the print. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a clean foundation - a prim and proper button-down blouse paired with a knee-length skirt. What we love about this combination is how the two shades of blue look together.
2. Add the star of the look - a bright bold floral print biker jacket. Because the base of the look was monochromatically blue, this bold floral jacket adds a pop of color without clashing.
3. Finish off the look with extra pops of color that echo the hues in the jacket - a pair of red sunglasses, sandals with a red heel, and a bright yellow purse that’s as bold as it is ladylike.
