Cascading ruffle features are really going to play up the dainty and soft feel that naturally lends itself to the floral print. Using this feature across the skirt, shoulder or sleeve components of your silhouette will create an airy and carefree feel that’ll make slipping into summer style as simple as simple can be. Keep the spirit of the piece with warm, rusty tones that play perfectly with tan leather, cream or even red if you’re looking to make more of a styling statement.
The event two piece
A two piece set is such a great investment, and one that’s painted with a pretty floral print amps the impact up ten fold. Look for a cropped top and sweeping midi, maxi or dress pant lower component to hit the nail on the styling head. Wear together and add a headband and heels for an event look that can take you from day to night and everything in between. You can also separate your styles out and wear your top with denim, contrasting prints or even activewear. Creatively clash your skirt with a simple tee or block colour cropped top to make it work for you outside of your summer occasion dressing. The styling potential of this purchase makes it more than worth it!
Eye catching shoulder details are incredibly feminine and fun, especially for the summer time. Look for tie up, off the shoulder or puff sleeve shoulder accents to bring a bit of boldness to your floral dress’ silhouette while staying with an air of carefree, effortlessly stylish summer styling. A midi, mini or maxi length all accompanies a statement shoulder beautifully, the sky’s the limit when it comes to this option.
A classic wrap
The timeless wrap dress is one of the very best options if you’re looking for a comfortable, classic and all kinds of stylish throw-on piece that you can wear out and about, or at a dressy event. Play up the casual tone and throw on a lightweight denim or linen jacket and pair with wedges or sandals for running your errands in the warmer months. Or take it right through to your next party or occasion with strappy heels, statement jewellery and a basket bag.
