Floral Trends - How to Look Bloomin' Hot!

FASHIONKim & Chloe

Hello! This is Lisa from? In Dramatic Fashion,? PopCosmo's Fashion Contributor with the latest style tips and trends from NYC. I love the idea of flowers in the spring. Who wouldn’t love fresh blooms, fresh starts, and sweet smells? However as a product of the Little House on the Prairie generation, floral trends in fashion tend to evoke less than flattering images of aprons, white collars, and boot grazing hemlines. Rather than let these memories tarnish one of spring’s biggest trends, you can easily embrace floral trends by going to the opposite end of the style spectrum. In particular, I suggest avoiding small dainty floral prints, washed out pastel flowers, and anything reminiscent of wall paper. Instead I like to use this spring’s floral palette as an abstract print, perfect for anchoring other colorful pieces, and for lazy days when you don’t want to fuss with many accessories.

Floral jeans are spring’s most daring addition being sported by celebrities and street stylers (galmeetsglam.blogspot.com? - cover image via? wakingupin-vegas.tumblr.com) alike.? They definitely make a basic jeans and tee combo much more interesting!

This mini skirt uses florals as more of an accent than an all-over print.

Floral print denim shorts are a fun switch from basic cut-offs.

The punchy color pattern of these floral jeans makes them fresh not dowdy.

Floral sundresses seem fresh and modern in jewel tone colors or with neon accents, but flower print sneakers and platform sandals are a fun and inexpensive way to dabble in the trend... enjoy!
