Pretty flowers to wear this spring
When we think about accessories to make our outfits look even better, we usually imagine items like earrings, necklaces, bracelets and so on. Pretty flowers can also make the most amazing accessories if you know how to choose them and how to wear them. There are plenty of occasions that will allow you to accessorize with flowers and the warmer weather also means that you will have plenty of blooms from which to choose. Here are some great ideas to keep in mind when it comes to wearing flowers.
Boutonnieres and corsages
Formal dances and weddings are just two examples of fancy occasions that will allow men to wear boutonnieres and ladies corsages. Boutonnieres are attached to the lapel of his jacket whereas corsages can either be wrist or pin on designs. No matter which one you choose, it’s important to choose the perfect pretty flowers to suit her dress. If you do not know exactly what your partner will be wearing, an orchid wrist corsage will certainly be the safest bet. Make sure that the bloom is white with some green foliage. This way, it will look great with any dress colour. Even if the dress is white, the green underlay will help the orchid stand out.
Another way of enjoying pretty flowers as an accessory is by using them to spruce up your hairstyle. No matter the style you choose, you can always have your hairdresser add some flowers here and there. They can be fresh blooms or silk flowers – depending on your preferences. Again, the colour of these blooms will depend on the colour of your dress so make sure that you discuss this with your stylist when planning your hairstyle. If you want to use a larger bloom, you should stick to using just one and it should be placed off centre like on the side of your head. Smaller flowers, like baby’s breath, can be inserted here and there to add texture. It is also important to note that different types of flowers will look good with different hair styles so chat with your stylist about this before making your choice.
Floral accessories are not just for formal events. There are some lovely ways in which you can enjoy pretty flowers even when you are planning a party at home or simply want to look your best for work. A traditional Hawaiian Lei is a lovely accessory to wear and give to your guests if you are hosting an event with this theme. If you want to wear flowers to work, you can still look professional while inserting a flower in your hair or opting for floral jewellery.
As you can see, pretty flowers can be used in various ways to make you look amazing. While your floral accessory will compliment your outfit, there is also an element of contrast when comparing the beauty of a man made dress versus the natural beauty of a fresh bloom. If you are ever unsure about choosing the right colour flowers as accessories, remember that you can use a colour wheel just as you would when designing a fresh flower bouquet.
