Spring has sprung, and with it comes the urge to embrace all things floral. But this season instead of falling into the usual pattern trap, take your inspiration from the power of the flower.
Sure, a bouquet-full of blooms is a lovely sight, but remember … those sweet stems are grown from solid roots. So, take a note from nature when choosing your outfit du jour and build from your strongest piece first. Heavier fabrics like denim or leather (yes, you can wear it in spring) act as your grounding element and will nicely complement more airy, delicate pieces of gypsy crochet or thin gauze.
Bright colors such as fuchsia and yellow can also act as your base; look for soft accents such as ruffles, bows, or twirl-able tiers, and you’re bound to rival any pretty petal.
