How does that Broadway song go??? “Everything’s coming up roses” That certainly seems to be the case for Spring 2012.

Let’s face it there’s nothing more feminine than a flock of floral to make a woman feel fabulous. This spring we have a pretty pairing of posies to adorn our clothing . Florals can be found in everything fashionable: long gowns, pretty pumps, blouses, caftans, handbags, jeans.and accessories..

If you’re afraid of wearing floral and in  need  of some fashion advice I just happen to have a few  tips for  you:

1. The size of the floral print does matter.  Larger floral prints  will make the area appear the same-LARGER..If you want  to minimize a spot on your fabulous frame opt out for a smaller floral print.

2.Placement of the floral print  should be noted. (For example: You don’t want two oversized daisies adorning your derriere or breast area. )

3. Color is so important. When it comes to color-darker will make an area appear smaller, brighter will accent an area. 

4. Please…I’m begging you, don’t wear floral head to toe.The floral print will pop when you pair it with a solid accent color. For example, when wearing a dress with a floral print consider a solid color found in the print to coordinate a belt/pump or handbag. If you’re still perplexed on which color within the floral print to spotlight why not try a nude/skintone  color heel to elongate your leg and make you appear thinner…and I ask you -what Glamour Girl doesn’t want that! (Note the Zac Posen picture above).

5. Like everything else when it comes to fashion if you don’t feel comfortable wearing floral you can still participate in the trend by adding a pretty floral accent piece.(Handbags, scarves, shoes, jewelry) are all available in  pretty  floral options.

6. Remember fashion should be fun… so add some floral and feel fabulous this spring.
