Fashion Editor, Yuri Ahn shares her styling expertise with our Swide readers. Floral print dress for a casual yet chic styling on a summer’s day. For this instalment I’ve chosen a floral print dress like the one Felicity Jones wears in the Dolce&Gabbana Makeup Bouquet Collection advertisement campaign. Have fun in the sun with flowers!
When its warm and sunny, you may want to go for an ice-cream or a nice stroll in the park, so a floral print dress is the perfect item to wear. Match green bijoux to the dress, when wearing so many colours its always best to accessorize with something that picks up on at least one colour of your main item. Opt for platforms, they’re more comfortable and make sure to take a racket, in case it’s windy. This maroon leather racket with jewelled buttons is cute and useful. And to finish the look off, a new entry for SS12, the denim Miss Sicily casual and different!
In this case i wanted to add a 3D effect to the flowers. Whay i mean is that i chose a dress with tomato print and macramè with flower applications from the SS12 Dolce&Gabbana runway collection.
I thought my blue nailpoish worked so well with this look: darker tone than the macramé and highly contrasting with the tomato print. And as you know- i have a thing for nailpolish!
Shoe wise i went for a simple style, transparent feel for lightness. For an important occasion you can wear this dress with chandelier style sandals like these ones.
All over print works well on trousers as well as dresses. Wear floral print leggings with an oversize necklace instead of earrings or bracelets.
I do like bangles in summer: different colours and shapes all worn together, In summer i like to experiment with jewellery to create more interesting stylings.
If you have a foulard with super flower prints you should wear it as a top by tying to knots behind the back and neck. Now your foulard is multi use!
Back to the original flower print dress styling- opt for nailpolish which matches at least one of the colours from the print.
Or for a more romantic styling, the pastel colours of the Bouquet collection are perfect!
When you’re out in the park, opt for Matt Silk Collection Sunglasses.
As well as a Miss Sicily, choose a colourful Dolce Bag for a more vintage shape.
Have fun in the sun with flowers!
