Floral Prints.All tricks about them.

Floral Prints.

There are many ways of wearing floral prints.Many people think of them as for skirts only, but the reality check is that you can use them for  earrings, hair bands, attaching them on a hat, on your wrist as a watch accessory, or on your sandals.
How to wear florals.
Pick a print type.  Choose a pattern that works with your personal taste and style. Flower designs can range from dainty and delicate to big and bold, each kind carrying its own personality and character. We’ve all seen traditional floral prints,maybe you wore them when you were young but you never realised they are so fashionable. While this look will continue to be popular, this year you can also expect to see a more contemporary take–large, statement-making graphic florals, on tops and dresses. There are even floral leggings and tights. 

Accessorize.Make a statement. Use florals as accessories.Floral print accessories are a great way to try the floral print trend as seasons transition. A floral print umbrella or pair of shoes will brighten up your day without looking over-the-top.The different accessorized florals you can use include a watch, a pair of sunglasses, shoes, scarf, bangles, chains, dresses or even hair bands. The choice is yours because you have so much at your hands to choose from.Make sure you dress perfectly.

Be edgy. With the right outfit, floral print can also have an edgy feel. Instead of picking small patch florals, try a larger print in darker colors. As a bonus, these darker florals can be worn into cooler seasons, too!And you know what, we are approaching winter.  Another way to give your floral look an edgier vibe is to pair a feminine floral with tougher accessories. Think a floral print dress with a leather jacket , or floral print leggings and a black tunic. Mix and match for a look that’s all your own! 
Stay on top of your game
Use the Same Color Pattern.Once you chosen a floral print, match the floral with the rest of the clothing. Pay attention to pattern's colors, choose one or two, then work around your choices. From the small details to the most prominent shade, any color in the print is fair game. Because floral prints typically come in multiple colors, you’ll have multiple styling possibilities.

New Rules for dressing well

Know your prospect's uniform.
Before you meet with a prospect, you should know that company's dress code. "Business casual" has a lot of meanings. Call the front desk at the company and ask what the company's dress code is and what the men and women wear. Or ask your contact. The point is, part of your responsibility is to understand that company's culture, including its dress code. Ask for examples, especially of the senior most person who will be in your meeting.
Dress one step up. 
If your prospect is in denim, you wear khaki. They wear sport coats without ties; you are in suits without ties. The point is that you always dress one step further up the clothing ladder than your prospect, but not two. One step says that you respect and value them. Two steps can send a loaded message. 
It's not just what you wear--but how you wear it.
Polished shoes, pressed shirts and well-fitted pants always.  At this point, some of you are thinking, "Does he really have to say this to people?" while others are saying, "Why do I have to tuck in my shirt?" But when your clothes are pressed, buttoned down and well-fitted, you convey that you are a person who pays attention to the details and are professional  
Grooming trumps style.
Even if you're wearing a great suit, if you've got a terrible haircut, you'll give a bad impression. As crazy as it sounds, everything on the grooming punch lists - fingernails, facial hair, haircuts and oral hygiene--matter.  
Know your company's uniform.
One of my clients makes sure that when his sales reps are making their sales calls, they wear a very specific uniform. (His company's clients accept this because they see it as an extension of the brand; the company sells safety products.) It doesn't matter if the reps are presenting in a board room or on a manufacturing plant floor, they wear the sample simple uniform. Obviously, if you work at this company, you follow this dress code in order to fit in.
Remember, you can dress in a way where your attire is the only message people remember, or you can dress in a way that takes nothing away from the message of value your company brings to them.
