April showers bring May flowers, and so it is with a huge fashion trend, floral prints. With so many options to choose from, everything will be coming up roses. From sweet and delicate to bold and bright, floral prints are having a major fashion moment this season that will be seen on women’s clothing everywhere.
Floral prints make fashion fun and can be mixed and matched to create unique outfits. Designers are featuring floral prints on everything including; tops, pants, shorts, skirts, dresses and rompers, blazers, and hand bags and footwear.
Women of all ages can wear a floral print top with no problem. Floral prints are featured on all styles of tops including; button-downs, cardigans, and even crop tops. While not everyone can pull off a crop top (or wants to) much more practical options like button-downs and cardigans can be worn during the day, in the office, or for a night out. Floral tops can be paired with denim, slim-fitting pants, shorts, and skirts. Worn either on their own or mixed with a floral pant, short or skirt, floral print tops are sure to have everyone seeing the world through rose-colored glasses.
Floral pants are also extremely popular for all season, with pretty petals popping up on women’s stems everywhere. Skinny crop pants are the style de jour and look great worn alone or matched with a different floral print top or blazer. High-waisted pants paired with a cute crop top are another popular trend. Comfy harem pants in floral designs are another great option.
Women can step out in style in floral print shorts. Popular styles include: high-waisted; paper bag waist; and short, tailored shorts with a 4-5” inseam. A crop top teamed with high-waisted floral print shorts, or an easy-breezy blouse worn with tailored shorts both make for a great silhouette.
Flirty floral print skirts in all shapes and sizes are making it known that dressing like a woman is always tres chic. Minis, midis, and maxis have been seen on the runways and on the streets this spring. Depending on how much leg a woman wants to reveal, there is sure to be an option for them all. Flouncy A-line skirts with ruffles and pleats look great paired with tanks or button-down shirts tucked into them. Midis (mid-length skirts) make for a more modest, lady-like silhouette and boho-style maxis are great in super-soft cotton blends for everyday.
For women who want to wear a single floral statement-making piece, dresses and rompers are excellent choices. Dresses in all lengths are being featured in the latest editorial pieces in top fashion magazines. The most popular floral print dress silhouettes include: those that enhance or give the illusion of a tiny waist cinched with a skinny belt; shift dresses that hit just above the knee; shirtdresses with short or long sleeves; silk jersey wrap dresses; and floor-length maxi dresses; all of which may feature other popular fashion trends like cut-outs, open-backs, sheer paneling, or scalloping. Floral print rompers are a fun, youthful, fashion-forward.
Floral print blazers look great worn over tanks and tees, and dresses alike. Cropped and waist length blazers are big this season and can be donned for day, work, or an evening on the town. They can be dressed up or down with heels or motorcycle ankle boots.
For the woman who wants to add just a touch of the floral print trend to her wardrobe, hand bags and footwear are practical, but stylish pieces to invest in without breaking the bank on an entirely new closet of clothes. Floral prints are available on slouchy shoulder bags, as well as more structured handbags and are beautiful statement pieces featuring the popular seasonal floral print trend. Shoes are a woman’s best friend (next to her real-life BFF) and the floral prints in a number of footwear styles are a must-have.
