Finally, it’s the time of year everyone’s been waiting for - spring has sprung and that means it’s time to wear ALL the flowers! There’s nothing more joy inspiring than a pretty, ruffley, floral printed dress or skirt. Every year, no matter what the trends happen to be, our petaled pal is seen splashed across every type of garment imaginable and this year is no exception. Here are 5 trending ways to rock floral print this spring season:
Boho Chic Style Floral Print
That wild and free boho chic feel is having a serious moment right now. Let out your inner flower child with a floral shift dress paired with some short booties, circular, colored sunglasses and a big hat - style that hair long, flowy and sunkissed (think beach waves) or big, natural and free for a truly carefree vibe. It’s a perfect look for music festivals, a shopping date with the girls, brunch or an impromptu photoshoot in the city. Whether its a look you put together for you or for your little one, boho chic is a super fun look for both mother and daughter outfits at any age.
Flower Power: Floral Print in Athleisure
Who said beast mode can’t be pretty? Kick butt in the gym with some flower power on your activewear. Funky printed leggings for the gym are a hot trend that has been around for some years now and isn’t going anywhere. Make it fun and festive with some spring inspired flowers. Bright, vivid colors like pinks and greens look beautiful with a solid white top; or rock a solid colored legging with a pop of petals just at the waist band. Whatever your floral style is, it’s a fun way to keep your workout wardrobe fresh and seasonal so you’ll stay excited and motivated to hit the gym each week! The best thing about floral leggings is that they are super versatile - pair them with some white sneakers or sandals and an off the shoulder slouchy top for an easy, transitional outfit that takes you from fitness to casual cute as you run errands or meet up with friends for coffee. You can also go with floral on your sports bra and a sheer or mesh top layer to show off the print or go with floral biker shorts paired with a solid top, fanny pack and and some mid calf socks and sneakers for a retro inspired, on-trend look.
Fancy Flowered Formalwear
There’s no way you’re getting through Spring without being invited to some kind of dressy event - whether it’s a wedding, a bridal shower, a baby shower, a fancy brunch, an award ceremony or whatever - floral is a great way to add some vivacious flair to your outfit. A floral skater dress or shift dress paired with some strappy heels gives off that polished and femme vibe. Or rock a a one shoulder floral bodycon for a little va va voom to show off your shape. If you’re headed to an event with your little one, an empire waist floral dress is an adorable choice for your mini-me and can also work adorably for you!
Mix and Match Floral Maxi Skirt + Crop Top
Maxis + crop halter tops are one of this moment’s hottest looks. Even through winter it was a thing, but it was more about rich colors and solids - now take this look and brighten it up with some joyful petals splashed across them. Choose a flowy floral maxi skirt and pair it with a matching floral halter top. Or, if you’d rather mix it up, keep the maxi floral and choose a solid colored halter or one shoulder top to create a contrast. This look can be made to dress up with heels and accessories - or it can be boho and almost gypsy inspired - with some bold jewelry and boho hat, maybe paired with some short boots or sneakers.
Floral Palazzo Pants
The palazzo pant is another piece that’s taken the fashion and streetwear scene by storm. It’s such a comfortable, effortless yet fashion forward look that looks perfect for both vacations, cruises and travel outfits or can be worn on a trip to the mall or even for a brunch date or a night out. They are form fitting up top and long and flowy around the bottom of the leg. Pair a vibrantly printed floral palazzo with a flouncy, minimal, solid colored top for vacation mode or a darker, richer floral palazzo with a flattering, cut out top and metallic accessories for a night out. Pro tip: the vacation look is extra adorable if it’s a matching mommy and daughter look.
