While there is nothing exactly groundbreaking about the idea of florals for spring, you can still give this trend a refresher by wearing it in new ways. From an all floral getup, to a brilliantly bold accessory, here are five different and unique ways to master one of spring's favorite muses.
If bold or fierce is how you and others perceive your fashion style, then a head-to-toe floral look is right up your alley when tackling spring's favorite trend. As seen at the Spring 2013 Phillip Lim show, and yours to purchase here, this botanical print flight suit has enough quirk and swag to fulfill even the most outlandish fashionistas.
The Statement Piece
Make a floral statement by opting for a strong, borderline empowering, separate that you can easily pair with more streamlined and basic options. For inspiration check out one of spring's favorite looks, courtesy of Dior's Spring 2013 collection, which featured an iteration of this floral print iridescent ball gown skirt, a match made in statement heaven.
If you'd rather take the classic route in regards to flowers, then we suggest you take inspiration from Milly's Spring 2013 ladylike collection, which was filled with elegant black-and-white floral ensembles. Give your all B&W look a pop of color by adding a bright accessory, such as electric blue pumps or a bright red patent leather clutch.
Another bold, albeit less intrusive, way of donning florals is the Prada way, via a very stylish purse. Rather than sweet and girly, think loud and womanly when searching for your latest handbag choice. As seen at the Prada Spring show, bold floral patterns gave accessories a mod demeanor that still managed to feel very contemporary. To give such an item the attention it deserves, keep the rest of your outfit floral-free, and instead think neutral and solid pieces.
The Literal Way
If you are more of a natural kind of gal, you can always wear this spring trend the literal way, by donning actual flowers. As seen at the Spring 2013 Issa collection, models showcased gorgeous flowers via sophisticated hairdos. Channel the Issa woman by picking beautiful flowers and pinning them on your locks. If that pretty idea sounds sort of impractical, you can always rock a floral headpiece instead.
