Fashion Trends Summer 2013: Floral Print

Hello Lovelies!

Today I will be discussing the trend of floral prints, a trend that comes and goes throughout the years. Floral print can look absolutely wonderful and fashionable if worn the right way, but it also can look like a gaudy train wreck if you choose the wrong print. I am going to begin showing off ways not to wear floral print, and conclude this post with fashionable ways to add floral print to your closet.
To start off I have two pictures of very fashionable celebrities that are wearing floral in the wrong way. Kim is a very fashionable woman but occasionally she makes bad choices like this custom-made Givenchy gown she wore to the Met Gala. Not only is this floral print too large and reminiscent of a vintage couch, the shape of this dress combined with the eye gouging print just looks terrible. If you look closer you can see that this dress is paired with sewn-in matching gloves, and matching shoes.
 Jessica Alba is a beautiful woman no matter what kind of clothes she wears, but this dress she was spotted in leaves me with a headache. The way the print changes near the bottom of the dress almost appears like it's two entirely different dresses sewn together to create one hideous dress. Although I do feel if the entire dress was created from the same colorful floral print that the top half consists of this dress could be a cute bohemian style dress.
If you choose the wrong color, size, or shape of floral print pieces for your body you can appear to be overwhelmed by the print, younger, older, insane etc. Pictured below are some hideous floral print pieces I found, now you may find these style pieces present on the runway, but not everything worn on the runway is truly wearable for the common person.
