Depending where exactly you’re currently residing, spring may (or may not) be in the air. Unfortunately, in these parts, not so much. I could wear a heavy duty Tracksetter Belstaff jacket (Accent Clothing have a great range here if you want to check them out) out and still feel right comfortable!
Spring Leather – Belstaff Tracksetter Olive
But if you’re lucky enough to be seeing lots of sun in your neck of the woods, consider storing away the leather and lightening up your closet with a great floral print. One of the easiest ways to dress for spring when there’s still a chill in the air is denim. We love a floral top peeking out from under a chambray shirt or jean jacket and it’s a great way to wear your warm weather wardrobe, before it’s well… warm.
Here are our some of our favorite floral looks:
The wear anywhere top
Eighty Sixty’s Cross Front Floral Top is the perfect dress up (or down) shirt for spring. The light lavender color and soft floral pattern will instantly upgrade everything from your work wardrobe to your Sunday brunch plans.
The bold botanical print
You couldn’t possibly be mistaken for a wallflower with a large and colorful print! We love Glamorous’ Botanical Boxy Tee and Midi Skirt. Like a great suit, the two pieces work well together. However, you can also break up the pair and add a white or pastel top to soften the skirt or a nice pair of jeans to dress down the cropped boxy style top.
The loose spring short
A silk short with a floral print is a great way to add some spring to your weekend. The blush florals and relaxed fit of Haute Hippie’s Flowy Short make it a great choice. Pair with a strappy sandal and minimal top for a sweet outfit worthy of street style stardom.
Mother Nature might not be ready, but your closet has spoken and it’s yearning for spring!
Summer is no time to hide behind long pants. Show off those legs in our the season’s cutest shorts. Plus shorts are so versatile, each pair can be worn with flat sandals for a day running around or dressed up with heels and jewelry for a night out! So throw on a pair of short shorts and you’re good to go.
Try a loose cotton short for a sophisticated French girl feel. Rhyme Los Angeles Floral Shortie has a drawstring waistline and front pockets. The loose feel lends itself to a relaxed silhouette, perfect for any occasion.
Play with graphic prints for summer perfection. Ella Moss Paz Chambray Short is playful without looking as if you shopped in your tween cousin’s closet. Made of 100% cotton with metal accents on the drawstring, you’ll feel cool and confident all day (and night) long.
Crochet isn’t just for your grandmother anymore. Black Swan Emma Crochet Shortie features a flattering scalloped hem and crochet detailing. There’s just something about them that makes you feel fancy the moment you put them on, but the comfortable cotton fabric makes them just as appropriate for lunch.
And for you daring gents, try the outlandish M.Nii Quasimodo shorts. Not only is this bottom piece short, it’s quite loud too. Proceed with caution!
A dainty floral dress is the ultimate spring accessory. Light and airy, it will instantly brighten your mood with it’s girly appeal. Warning: The following dresses may cause you to spin in circles and smile uncontrollably…
Short and Sweet
A floral sundress can easily take you from afternoon tea to a your best friends engagement party. RED Valentino Georgette Dress is feminine and sweet with a semi sheer upper bodice, tie waistline, and fit and flare silhouette. For a bolder take on florals, look for richer colors, bigger prints, and a few cool accessories never hurt to bring the look together.
C. Luce Poppy Fit N Flare is a great option with embroidered organza, a scallop hem, all in a vibrant poppy hue. Here it’s paired with a statement necklace and booties to add a little toughness to this floral number. Want to sweeten it up? replace the boots with nude strappy sandals and swap out the statement necklace for something a little more delicate.
Maximum Garden Party Appeal
How can you go wrong in a long head to toe floral dress? Try darker colors for an elegant look perfect for grabbing a few drinks with friends. We love the Sabine Knit Maxi Dress with a V-front neckline, ruching detail, and an all over floral print of blacks and reds with pops of indigo.
For a daytime affair, a water-colored floral print adds just the right touch of whimsy. Rhyme Los Angeles Venna Painted Ladies Floral Maxi Dress with a scoop neckline, back cutout detail with button closures, and a soft floral print is the perfect dress for a day at the museum, brunch with friends, or even a fairy tale afternoon wedding.
