Keep reading as we share 18 fabulous ideas of how to accessorize your pretty flower-patterned dress.
Wearing a leather jacket over a floral dress gives you an edgy look. Leather jackets, especially those in a rich color like black or brown, are classic and timeless. Or make a floral color pop with a matching jacket. Always in style, this accessory is a staple for your closet. Wear your leather or faux leather piece with any floral print you can imagine.
A purse can add a touch of elegance to a floral dress. Purses are the perfect accessory to highlight a bold color in your printed frock. Or your handbag can add texture with chains and metal adornments. And let’s not forget about the sparkle a purse can add with sequins for a glittery finish.
Matching Belt and Shoes
A flowery print can appear busy on a dress. Adding a matching belt and shoes to your outfit pulls it together with a polished finish. The belt and shoes should be the same solid color and ideally highlight one of the tones in the fabric of your dress.
The boldest and brightest colored floral dress needs a small finishing touch like a flirty pair of sunglasses. Feel free to make a splash with a colored frame that matches a color in your dress. And don’t hold back on flair with the shape or size of your lenses.
Don’t think you aren’t a hat person. There are so many styles out there, and you just need to find the hat that suits you and your floral dress. For most of us, a solid-colored wide brim straw hat or wide brim felt fedora will work well to elevate our style. You can also find a cute hat with a colored band to match a color from your dress.
We love the way a belt makes our waists look narrow. A belt in a contrasting color from your floral dress adds a bold fashion statement. Keep the belt to a solid color that draws from one of the less apparent colors from your dress to make a bigger splash.
Mixing floral patterns can be a challenge. Pair a top and bottom that have at least one hue in common. And, choose floral prints that are in contrast with different designs. Another stylish way to tie together two different patterns is to find a purse that highlights a color from one of the two pieces you are wearing.
Wedge shoes are so comfortable to wear, and they give us a bonus boost in height. This style of shoe works with a casual floral cotton dress or an elegant silk floral patterned dress. Keep the design on the shoe simple and coordinate with a color from your garment. If you decide to choose a pair of wedges with a pattern, make sure it’s small and complementary to your outfit.
Earrings, especially dangling ones, can enhance a floral dress in many ways. The loose hanging accessory is flirty yet elegant. Dangly earrings add glamour to complete your look.
Wearing a headband over your hair demonstrates a playful spirit. Headbands are stylish yet functional. You can keep your hair back while keeping your look on-trend. Like with other accessories, a headband worn with a floral print dress should be an accent of color or texture. Be careful, trying to mix different floral patterns. You don’t take away from the beauty of your outfit with an over the top type of headband.
White sneakers paired with a summer floral dress creates a casual and comfortable look. Your sneaker choice should be less athletic like and more whimsical with embroidery details. And your dress needs to be just as much fun to wear as your sneakers.
Tall boots and floral dresses are made for each other. A fall-inspired floral print dress paired with tall boots is stylish all season. Your hemline can be short or long and worn with boots that hit at about the knee. A solid color like brown or black will coordinate with almost any dress. If you go bold with your boot color, make sure it highlights a hue from your garment.
Wearing shoes that match a color from your floral dress is downright smart and elegant. Whether you pick the boldest or most understated hue to highlight, your design sense will shine through.
Yes, we mean combat boots with your pretty feminine frock. Think of this type of boot as military-inspired and not so much ready for battle. The chunky design of these lace-up boots will add a bit of flair to your floral apparel.
A denim jacket and floral dress are an outfit to swoon over. A flowery pattern softens the structure of denim. And, denim material adds an edge to a feminine dress.
We love a reason to pull on our cowboy boots. A casual, light fabric floral dress is your best choice to wear with your western boots. And, keep the flowered pattern smaller on your dress and let the intricate details of your boots enhance your look.
Strappy sandals and floral dresses make for a chic ensemble. Choose a sandal in a color that features your favorite hue on your dress. Accessories are accents but should still have that wow factor.
Cardigan sweaters elevate a floral dress in a softer way than a leather or denim jacket. Stick to solid colored cardigans that complement your outfit.
