May 2012 Lookbook: How to Wear Spring Florals

Omiru's May 2012 Lookbook: Spring Greens
This look is part of Omiru’s May 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece May 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

May’s flowers are in bloom - and so is our floral inspired wardrobe.  Spring 2012’s florals are less frilly and feminine - and are more sophisticated than seen in previous seasons.  Great news for those of us who aren’t girly girls - we can still wear these pretty prints.  The trick is to pair them with bold colors on simple silhouettes - the resulting look is equal parts playful and elegant, just like you.

1. Start with a floral print top grounded by a bold green pleated skirt.
2. What goes with green?  A sunny yellow, of course.  Slip on a fitted jacket to emphasize your nipped in waistline.
3. Finish off the look with accessories in shades of green - a mint colored heel and a turquoise handbag.  For your shades, mix it up - we chose a bright fire engine red to give the look some extra pep.
