Ask a Stylist: How to Wear Floral Denim

6.28.2012 WRITTEN BY Ellie How to Wear, Style Guide

Every week we quiz our Facebook friends on their style questions. We’re going to start featuring some of the answers here on our blog! This week’s style conundrum comes from Danni Pearlberg of Beverly Hills,  “I love the new floral jeans. What top do you wear with them?” 

Floral denim is on the short list of hot items for spring. I say embrace it and keep these tips in mind when approaching the trend.

Play it Safe The first thing to keep in mind when picking floral denim is to keep the prints on the small side, far more figure-flattering. Then, pull your favorite color from the denim and pair it back to a solid top. Prints don’t necessarily  need competition so keep it simple with both top and shoe.

or Walk on the Wild Side! Have some fun and add pattern! Stripes or polka dots are a fun way to make a splash. If you like the idea of mixing prints, but it still feels a bit bold to you, add a solid blazer to tone it down. You’ll have a home run.
