How To Wear Florals Without Looking Basic

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.

I’m not usually a big fan of floral. It’s not that I don’t like floral on other people, it’s just not usually my style. But randomly, for some reason or another, I’ll occasionally see a floral piece that I like. Maybe it’s a very specific pattern that I’m into, maybe it’s a dark floral pattern that’ll fit better with my wardrobe, or maybe it’s just the warm weather has got to me.

When I went to Buffalo Exchange to trade in some old clothes, I spotted this bright yellow floral dress from H&M that was only $7. I was really in need of an easy dress to throw on when it was hot as balls outside, and this dress also seemed like it would be cute for casual day drinks or whatever. When my boyfriend saw my purchase, he was a bit confused and said “that’s not something I would ever see you buying.” And I said, “well, you don’t know how I’m going to style it…”

I paired the dress with a pair of super-high but super-comfy wedges I bought from Nastygal Shoe Cult a few years ago (similar here), a Zana Bayne choker (similar here), and a vintage leather Versace backpack (similar here). Here are some other accessories that would totally toughen up a floral look.

I was really obsessed with how this look came together, so my apologies for so many pictures, hope you like them too 🙂

I eat gluten. I eat carbs. I eat meat. I eat pretty much everything. When I'm not cooking and/or eating, I'm shopping (or window shopping, at least). When I'm not doing either of those two things, I'm writing for Galore.
