Kaleidoscope of Colour

Bold prints, bright pieces and vibrant hues. It's spring , and time to make a statement!
 
It's the season where we finally shed our winter woolies and trade them in for lighter threads. Snazzy prints and loud palettes are bang on trend, and our guise of choice.
 
Rock a floral print tha'll make granny proud, but add a modern flare with vivid florals that will have people reaching for their sunnies.
 
Unless you're braving the pits alongside celebs at a music festival or embracing your inner flower child, chances are you would not want to step out in head to toe florals. The perfect remedy for this perplexity is to integrate the trend into your current wadrobe. We like to pair graphic florals (like the beauties we're sporting in the pic down below) with our favourite plain Ts. Looking at these shorts on Oasap's online store, we expected something thin that would leave little to the imagination. But we were pleasantly suprised by their quality. Being 100% cotton, these shorts are light weight and perfect for Australia's balmy weather, with no chance of any cheeky flashes.
And if you're craving a greater dose of obnoxious colour, top off your look with a conversation-starting statement necklace.

  11. Love the shorts! sometimes I have a hard time combining colour accesories with florals, but I love that you did it with a detail colour (like the smaller blue flowers) instead of the obvious red or pink

    1. You're not alone! we have the same problem too. The best way to accessorise florals without loooking mismatched is to pick out a colour from the print like we did with the green necklace, or you can play it safe with gold/silver pieces. Hope this makes it a little easier, Laura :)

  35. This outfit is making me long for spring. I love your tip about loud floral patterns because I've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate vibrant florals in my wardrobe. I love this pattern and the way you paired it with that teal necklace, it's so light and happy, I just love it!

    1. Vibrant floral bottoms whether they are shorts or skirts are a great way to brighten up any outfit. If you're not brave enough to rock so much vibrant floral at once, you can try accessorising with floral sunnies!
