Floral patterns are often associated with softness and femininity, so create the unexpected by adding some edgy accessories. Florals are in fashion right now, but keep in mind that florals don’t have to continue their usual look and feel. With the right accessories, your floral fashion can be edgy and gorgeously trendy.
Wear It With Black
Even your super-feminine, ultra pastel floral items will look edgy if you pair them with black. Add a floral scarf to an all-black outfit, and you’ll see how this trend can truly pop. Pair a floral dress with some cool black boots and a black bag and you’ll be rocking this spring trend. The best part about pairing a floral design with black is that you can choose to add a floral accessory in any color palette because it won’t clash.
Add Faux Fur
If you add the right faux fur to any outfit, it’s going to look a little edgier and a lot more glamorous. Top off a floral blouse or pants with a fierce faux fur jacket in a solid or mostly solid color pattern, and you’ll love how these two play off each other.
Say It With Pleather
What’s edgier in fashion than faux leather? Not much! Pair floral-print pants with a breezy blouse and finish off the look with a faux leather jacket. This creates an outfit that really is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. You’ll see many famous fashionistas wearing this look in Instagram photos all through spring and fall this year.
Use Statement Jewelry
Adding a statement necklace, dangly earrings and sunglasses dress up floral pieces just the right way. Try stacked necklaces and stacked bracelets with floral pieces, too. Big, eye-catching jewelry in solid colors or metallics are a perfect way to accessorize floral fashion.
Getting Edgy with Fashion
Fashion is supposed to be fun. You’re supposed to think outside the box, mix and match, and pair the pretty with the edgy to create amazing overall looks. Play around with edgy accessories to create contrast against those soft floral designs, and have some fun with it. Florals are a classic spring look, but with the right accessories, they become new again.
