Look for dresses that are form flattering but not overly sexy. Try finding a knee length cocktail dress in a soft pastel or warm coral like the one pictured above. Remember, sometimes more is more, show some skin but make sure you remain tasteful. Complete the look with neutral accessories and a cute white blazer.

Day: Wear your patterned trousers as a casual every day look with a plain jumper or top like this Primark one here. You’ve still got a pop of colour to turn heads, but you won’t stick out like a sore thumb when browsing the high street. Embrace the warmer weather (when it finally comes) or strut down the Mediterranean streets in a cute lace cami or blouse, paired with a floppy hat and sunglasses.
Night: Drinks with the girls? Dress up your trousers with some chunky heels and a cropped top. Or if you’re tummy conscious, tuck in a blouse or shirt and add a statement necklace.
Comment below and let us know how you style your printed trousers!?

I seriously hate doing this but I keep shopping because I always feel like I never have ANYTHING to wear. I hate my closet so much I'm thinking of getting rid of everything and starting from scratch. Do you have any tips on building a better wardrobe? "

I use to have a very similar problem (and as a result still have items in my closet with price tags attached because I never wore them after purchasing). It sounds to me like the real issue is buyers remorse, a condition that although painfully annoying, is luckily preventable. Below are the three questions I try to ask myself before and while I'm shopping in order to prevent buying items I will later regret.

If you've been following fancy francy for a while, then you've probably noticed our
If you're not familiar with Missguided yet, it's a fast fashion site, that stocks a lot of the latest trends but at a reasonable price. We fell in love with them because of their "badass" vibe, trendy clothes, and overall dopeness. True to many UK stores, they seem to have their pulse right on the latest fashions and often stock killer trends before it hits other mainstream stores.

Skater Dress: one in which the top (bodice) is form fitted and then slightly flares out to be loose below the bustline or waistline.
