Spring has bloomed and with that comes floral prints and flower adornments popping up on everything from vintage-inspired dresses to accessories. There are so many options on the market for spring that even those who find themselves running from girlie girl duds will embrace the whimsical details that are fresh for the season. Balance florals with chambray, khaki and rinsed denim for a modern take on the trend.
Go for a fluid look that isn’t over-the-top with this loose floral print tank dress. Wear it for day with a pair of neutral gladiator-style sandals and kick it up a notch for evening by adding a black leather jacket and shoe-booties. Take advantage of the season and let humidity serve as a styling product to make waves in your hair soft and touchable.
Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw with this vintage-inspired strapless frock. The pale pink color suits any skin tone and the subtle floral print is easy for any figure to wear. If your summer vacation takes you exploring a big city and wear it in the day with a pair of flats, and swap the flats for strappy metallic sandals for a polished evening look.
Go floral just on bottom with this adorable print skirt. The slight fullness creates a feminine shape. Tuck in a chambray button-up, add flats and a big tote for a chic casual look that will work for summer errands or catching coffee with friends.
When your hair just will not behave, slick it back into a chignon. Use some styling cream and coil hair at the nape of the neck. To add some glamour in a hurry, add this elastic headband. To avoid looking like a Blair Waldorf clone, bring the flower adornment down so it peeks from the bottom side of the head as opposed to sitting up top.
Wear the flower trend on your feet with these light and lovely flats. Flats protect your feet from the grime that is city sidewalks and a light hue adds a spring-y feel to any outfit. Try these with a shirt dress or a tank and high waist full skirt.
