We may still be in the throes of ice-cold winter months, but we’re already looking forward to warmer days and the coming spring, which is sure to be full of floral fashion trends. While florals are almost always a sartorial requisite print come springtime, this season will see a special bloom for taste.
From big, painterly rose prints to delicate blue-and-white patterns, this season’s floral fashion trends will make your heart race. In honor of National Floral Design Day on February 28, we’re taking a look at what we’ll be wearing in just a few short months. Whether it’s just a touch of blossoms or head-to-toe floral motifs, anything goes this season. After all, it’s never too early to start shopping for spring!
Romantic Botanic Motifs
If you’re ready to make a big botanic statement, there’s plenty for you in this season’s floral fashion trends. Look for bold, colorful flowers that look like they were lifted straight from a painting. Sport the pattern in small doses, like a blouse, and wear it with jeans and heels for an instant wardrobe refresh. If you want to go full floral, wear a dress in the print with colorful heels (identify an accent hue in the dress and find shoes that match) and pair it with small, complementary earrings for a look that will most definitely turn heads.
It seems like every spring gives way to some sort of blue and white, chinoiserie-inspired floral fashion trend. Blue and white is always a winning combination. This trend is perfect for any spring day (or night) and complements most pieces in your wardrobe. Look for small blue-and-white floral prints in an elegant blouse and pair it with bright blue trousers or a sleek, navy pencil skirt for the office. Or, opt for a blue-and-white floral print tank and white shorts for your days off—you’ll look ready to hit the Hamptons.
When you think of floral prints, you may instantly think of romantic, feminine hues in elegant silhouettes. But if that’s not your vibe, it doesn’t mean there’s not a floral print out there for you. This season, floral fashion trends include darker, more masculine floral prints that take on a very different tone. Look for prints in dark blue, black, or green in classic styles, such as a collared, floral print button-down and wear it with a black suit and heels for a spring-inspired office look. Or, dress it down with jeans and sneakers for a comfortable, laid-back day.
