Florals for spring? Contrary to what Miranda Priestly might say, it does kind of feel groundbreaking this year. Maybe it’s because we’ve spent the last two years cooped up, but there’s something positively joyous about the variety of blooms in fashion right now. The season is full of every kind of floral you could want. From big and bright prints in tropical color palettes to femme florals in romantic pastels, the floral trend has something for everyone.
Of course I have dresses on the brain, but there’s something so fun about a bright, colorful blouse paired with my go-to white jeans. If you’re the kind of person who sticks to your neutrals, a blouse is an easy way to dip your toe into pattern play. Step up your usual white blouse with a small-print, like these Frank & Eileen linen shirts in multi-color or blue. I love the utility pockets on this Lauren Ralph Lauren blouse to add a little edge.
For those ready to dive into color, go big in a peasant blouse for maximum volume and color. This Mille blouse with puff sleeves is easy to tuck in, and I love the delicate, pretty details of this Kobi Halperin blouse. Kesara’s painterly blouse comes with a tie waist, which is a super flattering detail.
Ok, on to the main attraction: dresses! You can always rely on Anthropologie for pretty, versatile dresses that work day or night. The Somerset maxi dress in a pretty pink color palette will work all the way through fall, when you can belt and throw on a cardigan. I love the large-scale, beach town vibe of this blue-and-white Cassandra dress.
On the dressier side of things, Saloni always has interesting florals that feel contemporary instead of fussy. The Lea dress is embroidered with some geometric shapes, and feels extremely modern. For something a little more playful, Farm Rio’s Lilac dress incorporates tons of tropical elements. And in the feature image, I’m rocking the lavender La Ligne dress – and I’ll be doing it all summer long.
