HOW TO WEAR FLORAL IN SUMMER AND NOT LOOK ORDINARY
- Quieteria and George: PASTEL, SOFT FLORAL AND DUSTY COLORS.
In those shades, beware of super tiny flowers in calicot style, they may make you look like you are wearing your PJs. Small flowers in liberty style are a safer option like this beautiful dress from Quiteria and Goerge. If you are going for bigger prints, the result may resemble your grandmother’s wallpaper. The refined aspect of those shades is adorable on fluid clothes like a long skirt or kimonos with Japanese style delicate prints for instance.
