Take note from designers like Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy and add blooms to your wardrobe this spring. A fresh way to wear florals this season is right on your jacket. From bright floral prints to retro-botanical motifs, flowers are thriving on structured blazers, silk jackets, statement trenches, and more. Tone down these feminine prints with modern separates like skinny jeans or leather shorts or go the romantic route and pair with bright frocks and gauzy skirts. These versatile jackets can transition from day to night by switching your jeans and a collarless shirt for a body-con dress. With so many blooms out there, there are plenty to choose from and a different flower for every type of fashionista. Take a look at the most striking and purchase-worthy pieces out there.
The Retro Flower
This tropical floral print jacket from Sass & Bide will put you in vacation mode upon wear. Beautifully tailored, this jacket makes for a great separate that not only pairs easily, but also upgrades any simple outfit. The bold print is contemporary and fun, while the collarless design and padded shoulders add a retro vibe. Since this jacket is made out of linen, you will be wearing it throughout the summer as well. Pair with other tailored pieces like black shorts or a gauzy while maxi skirt.
The Romantic Bloom
Trade up your black blazer for this ultra-feminine one from Toronto-based line, Brose. Not only is the print and romantic color palette super-chic, classic accents like gilded ivory buttons and a satin pink lining that peek from the sleeves deliver an extra elegant touch. The flap hip pockets and lightly padded shoulders will show off your figure. Pair with a turquoise statement necklace and jeans to give this girly jacket a more modern edge.
This silk jacket from Haute Hippie is embroidered with enlarged cabbage roses, giving it an extra luxe feel. The blush background downplays the bold florals, and adds a hippie chic vibe while the hook and eye closure give this jacket the illusion of no buttons, further accentuating its modern shape. Wear this light jacket over a colorful frock now and throughout the summer, and with darker pieces once fall turns up again.
The Modern Botanical
Not a fan of the girly florals shaping most jackets this spring? Check out this hip botanical print from Camilla and Marc that is anything but sweet.
