The Apple Shape Wardrobe: 4 Tips on Making Floral Print Super Flattering

I love love LOVE floral print. I think it’s my favorite print of all time. Floral prints will never go out of style because they are the ultimate print for making a feminine fashion statement. Prints can be tricky on my apple shape, but these are some tips on making floral print work!

1. Keep floral prints small

Classic 90s style inspired outfit: denim jacket, ditsy floral dress, plaid around the hips, and lace up boots.

2. When you do choose to wear large floral print, make sure the floral print has a lot of solid background to keep the print from looking too “busy.”

If you find a dress too short, just wear matching biker shorts underneath and make it a DIY romper.

Even a robe works outside of the home.

3. Darker backgrounds tend to be the most flattering.

Floral prints work in the fall and winter too.
Try cinching it all together with a wide stretchy belt.

4. When using a brighter or lighter background or bigger prints, keep prints in hip area, chest area, or under a jacket or cardigan.

Those are ways that I wear floral print! Some other miscellaneous tips on wearing floral is to avoid high necklines (unless it’s a shoulder baring halter), crop tops, and drawstring waists and to choose quarter or long sleeves over cap/short/sleeveless when possible. Do you have any tips to add? I’d love to know! Here are some floral print tops and dresses I’m loving right now:
