Florals are always in vogue but this year, they are one fashion trend that will make a statement, particularly in the summers.
However, while pretty flowery prints can really improve your overall look, it can be quite tricky to carry it off tastefully. You need to know which floral prints to opt for every season and how much would be too much. Well, you don’t need to look any further for your floral inspirations this season because you have come to the right place!
Shorts are a summer essential and pairing them with a simple plain t-shirt or even a button down or a tank top means that you are all geared up for a hot summer day! Floral shorts are all the rage this season. However, if you are thinking of making a purchase, then skip the high waist ones, as they are on their way out of style. Avoid the temptation of taking up discounted products as well, and instead opt for something more casual and chic, like the shorts donned by Kalki Koechlin here.
