Wearing accessories is one of the easiest ways to integrate patterns into your wardrobe. For instance, try a fashion necklace. You’d be surprised at how many pieces of jewelry are adorned with roses or daisies  – two classic looks.

But your options don’t end there. Trying to spice up a monochromatic outfit? Do so with a large, flower-patterned tote bag. It will complete your getup.

3. Combine pattern with color

If you’re opting for either a top or bottom that rocks this botanical print, you’re going to want to be careful when it comes to styling. Combine a solid-colored item with the pattern so your outfit doesn’t look too busy or overdone. For example, if you’re wearing a floral pencil skirt, you may want to opt with a solid-colored blouse. If you can, try and match the color of the shirt with one of the shades in the pattern so your look matches – in a good way.
