Dress Like Frida Kahlo with Flower Shaped Buttons
Frida Kahlo loved florals. She incorporated them into her stunning outfits in many different ways – floral prints, headbands made from flowers, and flower necklaces! What better way to channel your inner Frida Kahlo than by incorporating florals into your looks?
A great way to add a bold floral touch to your style is by incorporating flower shaped buttons. Start by choosing the base of your outfit. For a Frida-Kahlo-esque look, choose a dress in a bright color. Even better if you can find (or DIY!) a dress with beautiful embroidery details!
Next, choose a set of floral buttons to go with your Frida Kahlo inspired dress. Choosing bold, brightly colored, flower shaped buttons will really help your outfit to stand out. We have a great selection of gorgeous, floral buttons to choose from.
If your dress already has buttons, carefully remove them with a seam ripper, making sure to mark the locations of the buttons before removing them from the fabric. Next, hand sew one of your new floral buttons onto each marked location on the dress. Basically, you’re switching out plain, boring buttons for colorful, Frida Kahlo inspired flower buttons!
If your dress does not already have buttons, you’ll want to find the best placement before attaching any decorative buttons. Lay your dress out on a table or the floor and play with the placement of your floral buttons. Once you find a layout you love, mark the planned button locations, then hand sew your new buttons onto your Frida Kahlo dress!
