From large, flashy rose patterns to tiny, delicate prints, you can’t go wrong with a fun and feminine floral print. To avoid looking frumpy or outdated in your floral apparel this season, take these tips from the Love Those Boots blog. Here, we’ll show you all of our favorite new ways to rock floral to a country concert, date night or evening out with the girls.

  • Take your love of floral prints to new lengths with a long, boho-style maxi dress instead of the usual mini dress. This retro throwback style is reminiscent of looks that you love from the ‘70s, and it looks even better in a style with long, flowing sleeves and a plunging neckline.
  • If you still love the look of bouncy floral miniskirts, toughen things up by pairing yours with a great pair of leather cowboy boots. This look is perfect for outdoor concerts, because it allows you to look cute and feminine while still making it easy to walk around all day long. 

  • Wear florals on your pants or shorts, not just dresses and skirts. While many people think of dresses when they think of floral prints because of their feminine feel, these classic patterns look just as great in the form of modern pants and shorts. Try pairing some floral print skinny jeans with some retro-style sneakers and a simple T-shirt, or rock some floral shorts with leather boots and a denim jacket on top. 

  • Choose a floral print scarf and keep the rest of your outfit simple. This tip is especially great if you’re looking for a way to dress up your favorite jeans-and-a-T-shirt ensemble, but it also makes a wonderful way to add some flair to an otherwise simple purse or bag.
  • Go wild with floral print boots. That’s right; you can let your boots do all of the talking by browsing pairs with all-over floral designs embroidered on the sides. Brands like Soto and Country Love offer pairs with all kinds of flashy, eye-catching floral designs, and they’re sure to make you the life of the party at your next party or rodeo. 

  • Rock floral prints in unexpected ways, like on your accessories. Instead of wearing all-over floral patterns in the form of a dress or skirt, try adding a small and understated pop of floral print on your sunglasses or purse. This is especially great if you prefer a more low-key look.
  • For an eclectic, bohemian look, try mixing floral prints with other types of florals or a different pattern altogether. To avoid looking completely mismatched, try choosing only patterns with similar color schemes, and also choose one minimal pattern with one larger, more vibrant pattern.
  • Match your lipstick to your floral prints. Every woman loves a bright, bold lip, especially during the warmer months. No matter what type of floral print you choose, you can tie your whole outfit together by matching it to a bold lipstick in the same basic shade.
