April showers bring May flowers – that’s how the saying goes, right? The floral print trend is definitely in full effect. This is evident with its prominence in everything from blazers to pants to skirts. Some of the floral patterns out there are bolder than others and I’ve found myself challenged with how to best style it without looking like a crazy person. If you’re new to this trend, perhaps you’d like to start with a smaller print and work it into your outfit.
I think these ankle wrap sandal heels are good solution for that. The print is colorful and girly and has multiple colors so you can match it to other color palettes to style a very vibrant and chic outfit. I’ve found two different styles from Givenchy and Steve Madden that can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe this season.
The classic rose design from Givenchy would work perfectly paired with a little black dress that you could wear to a shower. Consider pulling in the pink rose detailing by pairing the dress with a matching belt. To balance the outfit, I would recommend a neutral accessory palette for the earrings, bracelet, and clutch.
These pretty and bright floral heels from Steve Madden are also another option if you’re not fully committed to the trend and are unsure if it’s for you. This pattern is very feminine, especially with the thin straps and stiletto heel. To play up the girly vibe, I would pair it with this season’s other “it” trend: the midi skirt. This white midi skirt is a great contrast to the vibrant colors of the heel and is complimented by a blush pink top. Again, I kept the earrings and cuff bracelet color-neutral, and offset the entire look with a mint quilted purse that has a gold chain to tie in the two color schemes.
Are you trying the floral trend this Spring? I’d love to hear what you’ve styled!
