With bold patterns adorning every retail window this season, smart styling is how you will get it right. Floral is one of my favorite prints, bringing in color, sophistication and a bit of fun is exactly what every closet needs! Choosing the right shape and color combo is what will make this trend a hit or miss. 

Here are a few tips while shopping

fabric - pick something durable with structure and not thin and flimsy, you want a great flattering shape

color - look for the neutral in the pattern, what will you pair it with, black, gray, denim, cream etc. floral can look really youthful or cheap if you choose the wrong pattern

outfit - I shop in pieces but with the whole look in mind, so how many ways can you wear the pants? Will they look good with flats and heels? Can you dress them down and up?

bold factor - look for a print with a bold color, even if it's muted with other neutrals, having a bold in the mix allows you play with it and have some fun

Here is my pick! I liked the shape and fabric as well as the neutral base in these Ted Baker trousers. A perfect color scheme... the olive, rust, and a tad of blue and pink. Just the right combo to look expensive and chic but wearable with options! Here is a day and night option. "My style" is totally the black peplum with the hot pink lip, and the unexpected pop from these rockin Kate Spade earrings.

Style TIP - A denim shirt should be in every closet! Denim is the perfect choice to bring a casual vibe but still be structured, flattering and pull it all together! Denim plays down the bold print and keeps it from being over the top.
