2 - Florals with Jackets

Jackets can completely change the vibe a person gives off. This is all depending on the material, fit and flow of the jacket. Historically, a corduroy jacket has been associated with artistically inclined people. A leather jacket might be worn by a tough and rugged individual.

This is a great rule of thumb regardless of the top’s pattern.

3 - Subdued Professional Floral Patterns on Shirts

A good rule of thumb, if you want to look more mature, is to wear muted or subdued floral clothing. Floral clothing is already colorful and loud, so oftentimes, it’s not wise to wear a super bright shirt on its own or in a formal setting. Avoid clashing patterns; plaid and floral, or polka dots and floral.

10 - Floral accents: floral button-up tops underneath sweaters for floral cuffs

A fun way to incorporate floral patterns into your outfit. Find a basic crew neck or sweater, sweater vest, and put it up next to the floral shirt in mind. Unless your sweater is black, you should select a sweater that goes with the background of the shirt or the flowers themselves. Once you’ve put the sweater over top of the shirt, be sure to fix your buffs over the ends of the sweater’s sleeves. Straighten up the collar and pull the bottom of the shirt out or tuck it in depending on what you are going for. You now have a well-put-together top with funky patterned cuffs and collar.

Seeing that the floral aspects are accents rather than statements, you could wear colorful pants, denim, and/or suit pants.
