Summer is finally here, which means new trends are starting to hit the streets and we are loving it! One huge spring/summer trend that seems to linger every year is the “all floral everything” look. (While we’re all about a good monochromatic palette, it’s a bit more surprising to see just how great a bit of well-executed flower print overload can go over.) And not only does the head-to-toe floral trend mean dresses, jumpsuits, and coordinating floral separates, but we are also noticing certain shoe brands debuting flower-patterned footwear, and some fitness brands doubling down on the popularity of the print. Check out our favorite looks and see how we’re going all out with that flower power this season.
Maxi dresses have continued to stay in style for years. They are easy to wear, yet they can add an elegant spin to any function you’re attending. A floral, billowing frock like this one from Alice + Olivia is perfect for this summer, whether you are outdoor shopping or hitting the beach for a day in the sun. To complete the look, these fabulous Bill Blass slide sandals add emphasis to the flowery pattern you are going for – and they are extremely comfortable!
Rompers are a fun and extremely easy piece of clothing that everyone should have in their closet. They can either be dressed down with sandals or paired with a slightly fancier shoe for a night out appeal. For this BCBG black romper with a crisscross floral design, the perfect shoe isn’t as patterned as you would think. Black high heels with crystallized flower embellishments adds not only bling, but an elevated feel that’s perfect for a night on the town.
Athleisure has kind of taken on a life of its own, with people wearing workout shirts, leggings and Nike sneakers in way more places than just the gym. With athletic wear becoming more popular to wear on the daily, it has adopted trends like tie-dye, military, and, now, floral. Adidas seems to love the decorative template down pat, and Nike has even started making botanic-inspired running sneakers.
Shirt and short/skirt sets are both playful and convenient, and can be worn virtually everywhere. This vibrant shirt and skirt co-ord set is summery and casual, and like many outfits, can be dressed both up and down. Complete the look with our favorite Gucci floral clutch, which is small and sleek enough for you to tote around all day, yet roomy enough to hold all of your must-haves.
