Spring Fashion 2018: One Too Many Florals.

How To Mix Floral Prints for Spring Fashion 2018!

When you hear “Spring Fashion” what comes to mind? Pastel clothing? Floral patterns? or just clothes to keep warm when it’s still cold outside? Well, all these are what Spring Fashion entails. Pastel colours, bold prints, vibrant patterns and clothes to keep warm – think sweaters, jackets, blazers.

Although, I reside in Lagos, Nigeria – a part of Sub-saharan Africa that doesn’t experience four (4) seasons. Yet, I love to let my imagination run wild and draw inspiration from the different seasons experienced in other parts of the world.

Of the 4 four seasons, Autumn is my favourite. Find out why in this post. Spring is my next best season because of all that floral and pastel colours.

In today’s post, I’m infusing a 90s inspired Spring Look. Best believe this year I’m paying homage to the 90s. Expect bright colours, layered outfits, oversized clothing all that nineties vibe.

So, I’ve always wanted to own a slip dress but this polyester floral print camisole I got thrifted the other day is the closest I’ve come to owning a something slip dress-y.

I layered this over a plain white tee-shirt. Plain tees are best for layering so as not to draw away attention from the slip dress or camisole as the case might be.


My new favourite floral print pencil skirt came in handy. This skirt was purchased on a “love at first sight” basis. Not only was it the right size and fit, it also features two of my favourite colours.



The black jelly sandals and my mini side purse styled here came into the mix and Voila! Minimalist et Chic. Definitely ready for Spring!

I went all in with the accessories but try not to go overboard so as to avoid looking like a hippie. My wooden hair beads, tassel earrings, velvet choker, wooden arm candy and colourful framed cat eye sunnies were all I needed to spice up this look.

    1. Hahaha it’s allowed. Winter is usually snowy and cold, Spring comes after winter and this is when the weather starts getting warmer and the plants start blooming, Summer is full blown hot weather that’s why many people go to the beach then and wear all of the bright colors, Autumn/Fall is when the leaves start to fall and die before transitioning back to Winter. I really hope to experience the 4 season someday.
      Anyway, I appreciate your comments.
      Thank you so much Ihuoma ☺


  1. Contrasting prints but I love it! You look amazing.
    I always get skeptical when mixing and matching floral patterns because I don’t always know when to draw the line but with your look, I think I should be thrifting floral patterns now

    1. Awww this gladdens my heart. The key to nailing a mixed prints look is to always contrast. Small Florals on big Florals, Large dots on small dots, that’s the way to go. Also, pick colors that pair well. I’ll love to see the looks you create when you get yourself floral pieces.

  2. Mixed floral prints, this is new but i like it still haven’t conquered the art of mixing prints personally but i love seeing it on people


    1. This look was a risk I took and I’m quite happy with the outcome. Mixed prints can be scary but once you get the hang of it you’ll be fine. Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.
