Prints, patterns and mixing it all up with fabrics is all the rave now. Colors are no exception this season. Here, we see what the floral pattern can do to turn your outfits into fun and colorful pieces as you walk down the streets this summer.

This Fashionista is wearing a beautiful high-low dress with a floral print, and even the top fabric has a floral pattern. Notice how the dress also has some sheer material on it; this has been seen more and more on dresses, as well as skirts. Sheer pieces are great to have. Just watch out for those pieces that don’t leave much for one’s imagination.

Her dress doesn’t only look modern, but classy, as well. She decided to pair her outfit with a colorful handbag that makes her outfit really pop. Her look is made complete with her fun braided headband hairstyle; these have been seen all over, and they’re easy to do on yourself if you don’t want to buy the actual headband. Just make sure you have plenty of hair pins around when doing so.

Mix and match your colors and prints, but just make sure you do so in a way that makes everything balanced. Overdoing it can truly be a mistake, depending on what prints and patterns you’re deciding to use.

How To: Find patterns you love. Whether it’s stripes or flowers, you can rock them. The key can truly lie in using colors that will make the pattern pop when pairing pieces or neutralizing them. Accessories can help you do this, too, so don’t be afraid to make the pieces bright and all in your face. If that’s the look you’re going for, make it work!
