Our Floral Picks for Spring
Flowers may wither and wilt, but florals for spring will never die. Not so much a trend as a fashion mainstay, prints bursting with blooms — whether dappled with delicate petals or emblazoned with pop-art bouquets — make their way down spring runways with such regularity, the perennial favorite has become timeless indeed.
As a cheeky nod to fashion’s decades-long love affair with florals, this spring’s styles evoke seasons — and eras — long past. Flowers are speckled atop ’70s-era patchwork, scream in ’80s neon, and commingle with vivid ’60s paisley.
Below, our boutiques’ fresh florals:
From Gucci’s archive revival of fashion designer Ken Scott’s vivid floral prints, these leather pointed toe flats make stunning use of Scott’s “Fashion Gardener” print. The dainty flat is both an apt homage and unmistakably Gucci, with its chunky chain strap and classic Horsebit hardware.
Max Mara’s Renaissance Flowers capsule collection draws inspiration from Italian gardens and floral Renaissance-era masterworks. Modern and old-world vibes harmoniously mingle in the brand’s stretch jersey color block sweatshirt, adorned with floral cotton sleeves.
The bucket hat, a vintage streetwear staple, got a major reboot last spring and remains a fashionista fave this season. With its classic bucket silhouette, Ganni tipped its hat to the ‘90s — and also the ’80s, by way of neon lime.
The delicate, English-country florals on Abercrombie & Fitch’s mini-dress call to mind ’80s-era Laura Ashley prints — but the thin-strap halter neck is unmistakably early-2000s.
These high-waist floral shorts from Maje are ready for vacay. The easy A-line pair boasts a festive jungle print, complete with a trompe l’oeil tiger on the prowl.
Sandro’s cropped tie-waist shirt in muted pastels will look as good atop a pair of jeans or high-waisted skirt as it will thrown over a chic maillot poolside.
A classic early-’90s velcro sandal is still enjoying its mid-2010’s resurgence, with designers offering new takes on the classic each season. Arizona Love’s new version (available at Intermix) goes luxe — and formal — with floral pearl embellishments.
This flowing tie-waist dress from chic French brand BA&SH gives us major ’70s nostalgia, from the dusty orange hue to the breezy maxi length and classic patchwork print.
A ’70s-era sneaker silhouette gets the Tory Burch treatment. The monogram logo low-top kicks are crafted from woven jacquard and overlaid with sunny embroidered daisies. Tennis, anyone?
