To style-conscious ladies, this is one trend worth trying. Without much ado, let’s quickly share some style tips!

PATTERNS
First, you must understand the pattern of any floral prints you are wearing. This will help you in wearing your accessories appropriately. While some floral jeans are in patterns like smudges, stripes, monochromes, you will find others in tie-dye, tropical mint, garden floral prints.

ACCESSORIES
Accessories like pearls form a crucial part of one’s personal style. Floral prints have a retro feel and so do pearls. To have a classic look, try a few pearls on. Other accessories may include: envelope clutches, satchels, tote bags, anklets, brooches, skinny belts (to cinch your waistline), loop/chandelier earrings and cocktail rings. Even with these accessories at your disposal, one must accessorize minimally as the focal point should be your floral jeans.

TOPS AND TEES
A formfitting top or tee may be ideal when pairing it with floral denim. Go for plain colours. For instance, floral denims with hues of red, pink, lemon, etc., could be paired with a nice top having any shade of the aforesaid colours.

BLAZERS, JACKETS?
Boyfriend blazers and snug jackets are ideal for floral jeans too. For ladies who want to go the extra mile, try a double breasted jacket with some brooch fastened somewhere on the lapel.

SHOES

From captoe heels to kitten heels, peeptoes, strappy sandals, t-bar sandals (or wedges), these are shoes to try on with any colour of your choice. For instance red, nude, orange, green, turquoise, white, yellow, etc are all fabulous colours. The trick is to pick one colour that blends effortlessly with the pattern of your floral denim. Animal print shoes may be optional for ladies with eclectic dress sense.

EVENTS
Floral print jeans are colourful and should ideally be worn during the day. For events like church services, movies, shopping, dates and any other diurnal event, the floral jean is fun under the Sun. However, don’t rule out night parties.

On a final note, the floral jeans trend is fast spreading worldwide, but it’s not for everybody. For ladies that are adventurous in the style department, this is one trend we recommend for you. It won’t only give you a chic look, but a modern, classic look too!
