4 Ways To Style Your Floral Prints So They Always Look Fresh!
Ready, Set, Go! It’s the race to pull out things we haven’t seen in about a year! Seasons seem so long but change in the blink of an eye where we can no longer remember what it felt like to be in any moment other than the present one. We pack up our short shorts & reminisce about the amazing flings we’ve had and all the insanely packed new rooftop bars that have opened while the sun was shining. While the seasons might change some trends are always here to stay. Each year we get ready for yet another few months of summer soirees, beach house shares and outdoor activities all while thinking what can we possibly wear. Good news is that florals will always stick around to bring on the heat but this year there are 4 new ways to wear them so your flowers are always looking fresh.

1. Carry Your Bouquet And A Statement

Step out in neutrals like you have all winter. It's ok, you don’t have to give up that signature NYC look just because it's 95 degrees and your flip-flops have melted into the concrete of 9th avenue. Get your hands on a fabulous floral bag. Tote around your sunnies, H2O and that last issue of Vogue you need to read in a statement bag that will update your look and put you on the map this season.

2. Take A Walk In The Garden

Move the print to an unexpected area like a floral print shoe. The shoe always packs a punch and can be the wow factor for an outfit you have on repeat just like your favorite summer jam. Throw on some boyfriend jeans and a cute tank top or off the shoulder tee – it's time to show them that these shoes were made for walking and that’s just what they’re gonna do!

3. Ditch the garden

It’s not tea time anymore! Floral prints can accompany you for a hard core night out while you hit the Boom Boom Room or stop for a cocktail at Gardenia.  Forget the frills and throw on some studded pumps because wearing these bold new takes on the traditional print will make you want to dance on the bar Coyote Ugly style! Go for oversized florals or leave the pastels behind for an updated look that is anything but ladylike.

    4. Think Outside the Florist

    Florals don’t have to be so literal! They come in textures, watercolor prints and laser cut outs too. Yes, we know how frilly and girly flowers can be and let’s face it, some of us are a little rougher around the edges. Translate this killer trend with something less garden party and more rocker chic. Items that have appliques and show some texture are saying “I am here NYC, Let's do this!”
