Flower power

Work it all over...

Floral prints are fun and flirty. The more the presence of the print, the more fun there is to go around. Take a cue from Sonakshi Sinha who takes the casual chic route in this printed ASOS number. We love the wrap-style silhouette. So now, so wow! If all-over-print is too much for you, break the monotony with a contrast belt or layer up with a monotone scarf.

Work it on the accents of your outfit...

The all-over dainty, delicate floral print triggers a personality clash? Fair enough. Incorporate flower power into parts of your ensemble. Watch how tactfully Kareena Kapoor embraces the trend — on the cuff of her Anand Kabra kurta! Clever dressing is the key and she sure gets full marks. You could also add the mixed bouquet on your accessories or your arm candy.

Work it with a slogan tee...

Unexpected and completely out of the box, Kangana Ranaut gives the fun and flirty florals an edgy twist. While most people would play it safe and team this pleasant print skirt with a monotone blouse, Queen goes rock-chic with an oversized slogan tee. Super-sized spectacles and barely-there make-up complete the bold mood.

Work it with another print...

The print-on-print look is not easy. There is no in-between — it’s either a hit or a miss. Trust fashionista Sonam Kapoor to know the secret ingredients. We heart how the contrast mix of lush blooms gives her ensemble a fresh, sensual and breezy feel. The Bewakoofiyaan girl balances it with gold jewellery and red puckers. Kudos! If contrast prints are too extreme, start safe with matchy-matchy.
