Sheer, floral print dresses- wear them like Scarlett
Floral prints have survived the fashion transitions, and have managed to make it to the spring-summer collection as well. And one can see why! The floral print suits just about anyone, and looks gorgeous, whether it be during the day, or for a night out. And Scarlett Johansson shows how the floral print can go beyond cute, to look sultry and gorgeous.
Its not the clothes but the attitude which defines chic. And Scarlett Johansson is here to demonstrate how! Of late, she has been spotted wearing a lot of floral print dresses, and instead of making it a monotonous, safe bet, she has managed to demonstrate how the different kinds of print, matched with appropriate make-up and accessories, creates different looks. With some of the dresses, which are heavy on the print, she has decided to keep her make-up minimal, with shades of nude and pink. And with some of the dresses, which have a lighter print, she has gone bold with her make-up.
This daring woman is not one to shy away from anything unconventional. Instead of just picking up generic floral prints, she has managed to pull off over-sized floral prints at almost every occasion. Ever since the premier of He’s Just Not That Into You, where she sported a flowing gown with oversized floral prints, she has pulled off the look with different colour combinations, to create a different air altogether. For a party of the play A View from the Bridge as well, she decided to wear a floral print dress, but the two outfits, with their different cuts and the different make-up, created very dissimilar looks.
Floral prints can be very feminine and girly, as well as bold and sultry, all the same time. One just needs to know what the different cuts are, for different occasions. Bold floral prints are more daring, and very few people manage to carry it off, but when worn, they are very hard to ignore. “I’m gorgeous and you’d better know it” is the message which the bold prints give out. And Scarlett Johansson is all about that. She is the kind of woman who knows that she’s charming, and she can draw attention to herself without trying too hard. The bold floral prints echo her attitude, and her personality, which is feminine, gentle and bold at the same time.
From a long flowing gown, to a maxi-dress which is more boho-chic, to an a-line fitted dress and a sheath dress or a wrap, there is not end to how the bold, sheer floral prints can be worn. If the dress is white with big red/maroon floral print, then opting for the same shade of bold lipstick and keeping everything else very minimal and natural is a very sultry look, while a more pastel shade of floral, coupled with natural make-up, and very minimalistic jewellery gives out a very feminine air. And Scarlett Johansson has sported all of these looks, with panache.
