OK, so floral prints are a no brainer for spring. Nevertheless, we are loving the large bold floral prints that came down the spring runways of Etro, Jil Sander, and D&G. Sometimes floral prints can be extremely scary. Especially when not worn the right way, but they can also be chic and sophisticated when worn the right way. Large floral prints are statement making and ultra feminine. SC thinks this is a perfect look for curvy girls to rock for that upcoming spring/summer wedding or for a chic spring get together.
To make sure that you are not looking like an order from 1-800 flowers, we suggest pairing a large floral print dress with a super cute leather cropped jacket like this one from Sears
to add some edginess. For the curvy girl who doesn’t mind large statement making floral prints we recommend that you pair this large print with a neutral pair of shoes like these super cute natural colored Pierre Dumas sandals
to balance out the boldness.

Shirt dresses are one of the most undeniably chic pieces a curvy girl can have in her wardrobe. It’s as essential as the trench coat.

For those of you who are beginning to build a spring wardrobe be sure to add this classic look to your list. For the bold curvy girl try one in animal print. For the sexy sophisticated curvy girl, try an asymmetric cascading ruffle style shirt dress that can take you from the board room to drinks after work. What ever your style, there’s a shirt dress waiting for you. We even helped you out by picking out a few of our favorites.
Where to buy
It looks like fringe will be the hot detail for Spring which is alright by me. Fringe detailing gives any look that bohemian vibe. You just have to be careful of how much of it you incorporate in your outfit. You don’t want to be head to toe in fringe which is why you should only wear one fringe detailed item at a time. I love a cross body fringe bag with jeans and a tunic or a pair of sexy sandals with fringe detailing around the ankles with a sheath dress. Whether you like a fringe detaild dress, jacket, or shoes SC took the liberty of finding you a few pieces that can be easily incorporated into your wardrobe.
