If you've been out doing any spring shopping, you've probably seen vibrant floral patterns on everything from shirts to shoes. And these are not your grandmother's flower prints. Today's floral prints are rich in color and design, and can really bring interest to basic pieces. My mom got me a great floral shirt from Lands End for my birthday, and I finally gave a wear.
Pants - Ann Taylor Loft (old) | Shirt - Lands End | Tank - Aventura Clothing | Shoes - Clark's | Necklace - Tiffany | Earrings - Michael Kors
The colors are so bright, on a basic background of white. The style of the shirt is a simple, basic button-down. Both the background color and the simple structure make this the perfect impact piece. Paired with a pair of jeans for a casual look or with an a-line skirt for a dressed up look, it's a pretty versatile piece for a pattern.
I paired it with a very old pair of radiant orchid cropped pants that I had hanging in my closet. I kept everything else simple, adding my favorite Brienne Tank from Aventura as a base layer and simple black flats. I did add one more flash of color with this bright Kyle Wrap from Aventura as well. It was chilly, so I needed a jacket.
How else can you wear the new floral trends?
- Put on a great pair of floral shoes with your favorite jeans and t-shirt.
- A floral skirt always looks great paired with a classic twin set.
- Break up a pretty floral dress with a solid colored cardigan or jacket.
- A floral cardigan can brighten up a simple white shirt and jeans.
