A Closet Full of Blooms!

A Closet Full of Blooms

Spring is here and everything is blooming around us. Our closet should adapt to the landscape, incorporating lots of cheery florals, as well all themes inspired by the countryside or a dream garden. Florals vary in mood, size, colors, and execution. Let’s pick those that best fit our personal style. You will definitely rock them on the beach, on the dancefloor, around the city, and on special occasions!

Dark Florals

They land a dark backdrop and pop out like 3D creations. These florals are sophisticated and figure-flattering. If you add more color to the mix, you get the Alice + Olivia Breann Floral Tie-Neck Tiered Dress . For a 50s reference and much more prominence of the dark background, pick the Ted Baker Izobela Kensington Floral Bow Detail Dress . If you are a busy girl, invest in the day-to-evening Diane von Furstenberg Benton Floral Long-Sleeve Wrap Dress.

Gypsy Style

These florals are usually tiny and busy. They are seen in maxi flared skirts, and ruffled dresses. If you want a cool bohemian outfit, mix the Ulla Johnson Maria Floral Tiered Ruffle Skirt with an off-the-shoulder top. The Alice + Olivia Alta Peasant Floral Off-the-Shoulder Top is typical of this style. Bring that easiness into partywear with the 3.1 Phillip Lim Meadow Floral Cold-Shoulder Dress.

Cheery & Painterly

Romantic allure is mostly attributed to painterly blooms and mood-lifting colors. Motifs in the Alice + Olivia Jeri Strapless Floral-Print Overskirt Romper look like being part of a botanist’s sketch. Referencing an impressionist’s amazing flare for color fluidity, the Vanessa Bruno Helidie Watercolor Floral Print Silk Dress feels so artsy. What makes the Cinq à Sept Floral Print Tiered Ruffle Dress look even more painterly is the layering of printed semi-sheer fabric in the form of tiered ruffles.

Graphic & Bold

Less detailed floral graphics offer a sharp visual effect. They are instant attention-grabbers. Somewhere between a graphic and a painterly effect, you will find the Alice + Olivia Coco Floral Print A-Line Dress. It has been adopted by an array of ‘it’ girls including Princess Eugenie. If you are in a tropical frame of mind, the Maje Rawai Floral Print Long Shirtdress will surely get you to a fantasy destination. Famous editor Caroline Issa exudes a vacay chic aura in it. Add also to your wishlist the Ganni Elmira Floral Print Silk Slip Dress which is the look of the moment.

Strategically Placed

As an alternative to allover floral prints, think of strategically placed floral embroidery. It is luxe and textural. Lace rose appliques adorn the chest and cuffs of the RED Valentino Long-Sleeve Point d’ Esprit & Floral Appliqué Blouse.  You will find blooms only on one sleeve of the Equipment Adalyn Floral Embroidered Silk Shirt. In transitional weather, such motifs will turn the Maje Mirodi Embroidered Floral Cardigan into an elevated version of a knit layer!
