15 Floral Prints For Spring That Actually *Are* Groundbreaking
When it comes to sartorial tropes that have been overdone to the point of exhaustion, floral prints for spring is most definitely one of them. Thanks to Miranda Priestly, the entire world knows that bud-studded patterns and fabrics are most definitely not groundbreaking and, according to her eye roll, they're boring old news. Call me crazy, but I beg to differ. Florals for spring is a thing for a reason. Do you sigh in disapproval when you see crocuses spreading their petals in the early days of spring each year? Do you scoff when cherry blossoms cover previously naked branches in frilly pink splendor? No, no you do not! Seeing — and wearing! — bright blooms is a sign of sunshine-filled days ahead, so bring on the flower power.
If you need proof that florals can feel cool and new, you only need to look to the below roundup of petal-fueled products. From skirts, dresses, and tops to shoes, hats, and bags, it includes everything you'll need to feel like a walking garden from head to toe. Pick your favorite pieces, arrange them into a wearable bouquet, and wait as the big bloom energy washes over you. I promise you'll feel fresh AF.
