Make a floral fashion statement with vibrant sunflower prints this summer. Scour of favorite outfits featuring the unforgettable flower and pick up a few tips on how to sport the sunny blooms.
Floral print fashion trend is visually loud for a reason especially at this time of the year. With the birds, bees, moths and the trees visibly flourishing from abundant sunshine, we the human counterpart cannot help but feel the need to adorn ourselves in equally blooming outfits.
And the great news — as we move further along into 2014 — is that floral prints are designed to cater both the female and male fashion domains even though some (from both groups) are perpetually allergic to anything remotely floral.
Like daisy prints, sunflower prints are gaining traction in the floral fashion scene. They are considered modern and appreciated by the youth’s most fashionable and worn aplenty by many popular street style bloggers. This is influenced by the very wearable design as portrayed by the classic color palette of the coveted sunflower motif.
With the default bright (or mellow) yellow blooms smacked onto backgrounds of white, cream, black or on blue denim, this print style can be worked into any wardrobe category without a fuss.
