It's always nice to have a few different floral pieces in your wardrobe, even if you're not usually into the "girly girl" style. A floral shirt, for instance, can be a really pretty piece that's extremely versatile, as long as you know what to pair it with. Depending on the particular occasion and what sort of look you're in the mood for, you can figure out how to wear your floral shirt right.


Wear a light-colored floral shirt loose over a pair of capris and nude heels or ballerina flats. Keep this look casual -- perfect for a date to the movies or running errands around town during the day -- with a shoulder bag, or a bit more formal with an over-sized clutch.


Tuck a bold floral, patterned shirt into a high-waisted black pencil skirt. Tucking in adds sophistication, and you can pull a bit of the fabric out around your waist for a chic look. Because you have the neutral solid black on the bottom, you have the freedom to go pretty wild on top. Vibrant fuchsia and cobalt blue are perfect colors for spring and summer. For an evening out at your favorite club with your best ladies or a romantic date, opt for a wild, always trendy animal print. Add a pair of peep-toe pumps and clutch bag to perfectly finish off this fab look.


Pair a floral patterned blouse with a miniskirt, opaque tights and sky high heels. If you're headed out on a date this look is perfect, and you're really going to wow in this number. A sparkly over-sized clutch is the perfect accessory; keep your jewelry and other accessories minimal because this look says enough on its own.


Put an over-sized floral tunic over some leggings or, as long as the tunic is long enough that your rear isn't left bare in the wind -- pantsless with a thin belt over top to define your waist. Add a cute pair of booties and a satchel, and you have a super chic -- not to mention comfortable -- look that you can rock for many different occasions.


Suit up with a floral button-up shirt under a blazer with a pair of matching high-waisted shorts and belt around your waist. Flip up the cuffs of your shirt over the bottoms of the blazer sleeves for a comfortably chic look. The perfect way to finish off this look? A pair of stud earrings and kitten heels. Gorgeous and glam.
