Stripes, short suits, and pointed pumps are just a few of the trends we’re looking forward to wearing this season. Still, nothing says springtime quite like florals. Floral prints resurface every spring, but there are always ways to put a fresh twist on this perennial favorite. Designers like Zac Posen, Prada, and Paul & Joe all sent lush floral prints down their spring runways, and Lauren included quite a few beautiful blooms in her latest Kohl’s collection.
The fun thing about floral prints is that there are so many ways to wear them. You can go for a classic approach with a lightweight sundress dotted with pretty perennials, or try a slightly more daring option like a pair of floral printed pants or a blossoming blazer. Either way, the look is fresh and feminine, and couldn’t be more perfect for this time of year.
Since the weather’s still a little cool, I opted for a pair of cropped floral trousers styled with a lightweight cardigan. (You might recognize the pants from this post.) Unless you’re a pro at mixing prints, I recommend pairing floral pieces with solids. Floral motifs tend to be busier, so doing this will ensure your look is clean and chic.
