If there’s one pattern that comes back year after year in the spring and summer, it’s florals. In fact, we’d even go so far as to say that floral prints have enough staying power that they can be categorized as classic, rather than trend. With bright colors and bold patterns, floral dresses, accessories, bags, and shoes command attention wherever you go. A statement piece, like a pair of printed floral sneakers will make you anything but a wallflower.
Wondering what to wear with floral shoes? Here are some ideas to put the spring in your step!
Use Floral Shoes as an Accent
When you want to spice up a neutral outfit, slip on a pair of floral shoes to add a daring accent. For example, a pair of khaki shorts and a white tee might be a mundane outfit on its own, but add a pair of Woolderness 2 slip on shoes and you’ll be ready for fun! These floral clogs are cute enough for summer concerts or city shopping, yet they’re also made for the indoors so you can enjoy them wherever you are. Made for softness and comfort, they are the ideal shoes for bunion prevention.
Go Full Floral
Maximalism is in style and we love all the possibilities when it comes to florals. Wearing a floral dress with floral shoes might seem like a risky move, but the right combination can create pure sartorial magic. The weather is warm, the flowers are blooming and so are you in a pair of Dandy floral canvas sneakers, which come in a yellow floral pattern. To offset all the flower power, style your look with a basket bag or straw tote. You don’t need to add any extra color in your accessories with this look, so keep them neutral and minimal.
Mix and Match Patterns and Prints
Solids, stripes, florals...oh my! The mixture of different patterns and prints is an art form, but it’s really not too hard to master. When mixing multiple patterns, an easy to follow rule is to choose patterns that have different scales. For example, a large polka dot print dress would look divine with a pair of floral print shoes like Star, which feature small daisies. Don’t forget to get creative with how you tie your shoes -- there are infinite ways to lace sneakers.
Embrace Feminine Flair
Play up your feminine side this spring by pairing your floral shoes with garments that exude elegance. We’re thinking ballerina full skirts and soft fabrics for this styling. For a casual day look, pair your floral sneakers with a flowy chiffon top and white jeans. Complete your feminine styling with a straw sun hat and enjoy the warm weather in the great outdoors!
Add Edginess to Your Look
Taking the opposite approach, balance the yin of your spring shoes with the yang, or masculine energy of your other garments. A leather jacket, distressed straight-leg jeans, and a white tee will ground your floral shoes while still making a style statement. Consider the weight and texture of fabrics, finding a harmony between the two. This look is perfect for walking around a big city on the weekends.
By now, you shouldn’t be worried about how to wear floral shoes...there are truly endless options and they all look fab! The key with floral kicks is to not be afraid to get creative and experiment with styling. Trust yourself, have fun, and embrace the idea that more is more.
