The Floral Trend for Spring


April showers bring May flowers. Florals seem to be synonymous with spring, so it's no surprise we're seeing more and more of the print as we're nearing the end of winter. (Can I get a hallelujah?!!) And while generally a fairly feminine pattern, you can make the floral trend work for you regardless of your personal style. It all comes down to the amount of the print you include in your look, what you pair it with, and the print itself. Here's how we'll be wearing the floral trend this spring!

While a floral dress is always a fun and easy option that can take you from day to night, I'm loving all the floral skirt options! From midi length to mini, from A-Line to pencil, from knit fabrics to taffeta, from pastels to bold jewel tones, these skirts can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion.

Keep it casual with a graphic t-shirt.  All around comfy, but pulled together, the skirt and graphic t-shirt combo can be made a little dressier with a pair of heeled ankle booties or kept casually cool with sneakers for a day of errands.

Throw on a layer. As the weather gets warmer it's still cool enough to need an extra layer in the mornings and evenings. A great way to add in your personal style, a cardigan or a jacket can easily and dramatically change your look. Don't be afraid to experiement with different styles and materials -- try duster, cocoon, and button down cardigan styles or leather and military jackets.

The half tuck. Give an oversized sweater or shirt a little shape with the half tuck trick. Less formal than the full tuck, this look pairs especially well your fave pair of ankle boots

Dress it up. Trade in the ankle boots and the graphic t-shirt for some stilettoes and a blouse. With the top tucked in accenting your waist, you'll be all set for date night or a night out with the girls.

A skirt is an easy way to try the floral trend, as there are so many different ways to style it. Find a print that fits your personal look and let the skirt take you all over town from running errands to PTA to dinner out and beyond.
