189 easy ways to wear florals

Crazy, clashing florals are on-trend at the moment. But sometimes trends can get out of hand, and in this case, there’s a danger of looking like an over-fertilised greenhouse.

Recently a bunch of Fox in Flats readers took up the challenge to wear florals during Flower Dare Week, creating some bloomin’ beautiful outfits using flower-motif rings, necklaces, scarves, shoes, earrings, brooches, and bracelets. Floral patterns came to life on dresses, tops, and pants, and fresh and faux flowers were pinned into pretty hairstyles and tucked behind ears.

So take a leaf – or a stem – out of the gardens of these ladies and be inspired to get floral!
