The grass is somehow greener, the cherry blossoms are out, and the days are becoming deliciously longer; an English spring has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited to debut spring style trends. In addition to pastels and other romantic accessories (scarves, rose-gold jewelry, colored headbands), I’m loving floral prints. A huge runway trend for Spring ’12, floral prints are popping up everywhere this season from Aldo’s floral wedge sandals to Anthropologie’s idyllic floral printed skirts. While I do love my neutrals, incorporating floral prints into your look is an easy wardrobe update. It’s also the perfect alternative to solid colors. So, whether you prefer roses, daises or, my favorite, tulips, find your favorite floral trend below and add a little spring to your step.
#1: Metallic Jacquard Dress by J. Crew
This lovely dress designed by J. Crew in golden chartreuse is just the right piece for spring. The delicate watercolor floral print is feminine yet fresh because of the metallic accents. Wear this to Cream Tea in simple kitten heels or to the park on a Sunday afternoon. So pretty!
