#AuburnUmbrella: Floral Outfits for Summery Vibes

Summers are just around the corner, and floral prints can make your summers even more happening and aesthetic.

Summers are just around the corner. The temperature is rising, fresh blossoms are sprouting from the twigs of otherwise barren trees. What could be a better time to buy florals? Floral prints that come in all varieties and designs are quintessential to almost everyone’s wardrobe. Prints like these transcend gender boundaries, and thus, make it easier for anyone who wants to experiment with floral blocks.

These patterns are filled with multicoloured flowers that seem almost jarring to our eyes. That’s because there’s very little space between two flowers. Thus, your dress resembles the look of a garden filled with unlimited flowers with no space left in between. Dresses with such prints don’t show the background colour because of the limited space in the floral print. Try these prints in the form of short dresses or T-shirts!

Wide Spaced Flowers

As the name suggests, this kind of floral print usually looks good on kurtas or longer dresses. In such prints, the background colour of the fabric looks quite vibrant. If you want to experiment with this print, go for subtler colours like olive green, pastels, etc.

Men’s kurtas in these prints are famous in the form of pastel colours like peach, light orange, beige etc. Try these prints, and give a royal look to your aesthetic! 

Sarees

Sarees and summers should be actually called indispensable. It’s beautiful to see how one can experiment with florals in both the realm of blouses, as well as drapes. Cotton sarees in summers usually carry lighter prints. One can look for colours like blue, turquoise, off white, pale yellow etc. in their drape. To add a floral touch, you can wear a printed blouse.

Another way to experiment with some subtle floral designs is by looking for printed block designs on saree fabric. This trend was in vogue in 2020 too, when many actresses like the likes of Kareena Kapoor and Manushi Chillar, replicated the light printed design.

Shirts 

Men’s shirts come in beautiful designs as far as floral print is concerned. If you are going to the seaside or beach, don’t forget these shirts! They actually imbibe the drowsiness and calmness of the summers in them. Background colours that one can explore are black, green and white. Prints on them are usually of a contrasting colour.

Tops 

Another fashion necessity is the inclusion of tee shirts and tops in your wardrobe, and floral prints in these regards can add some very minute details to your overall attire. You can go for normal breezy crop tops and pair them up with denim. Try wearing white, yellow, red or orange as the base colours, and emulate the summer vibes!

If you’re going for a longer maxi dress, try something new! Improvise by wearing the dress as a top with some Palazzo pants.

And that’s all for our summer floral tradition! Florals to summers are what scarves are to winters. Both of them need to be savoured and enjoyed thoroughly.
