For as long as I can remember, springtime has meant floral. From dresses to bedding to t-shirts to nail designs, it seems like you can’t go anywhere without seeing a daisy or a rose. It’s certainly one of the most feminine prints around, which plays well into spring’s light and ethereal feel. So, what do you do if your style isn’t quite so girly? Why, you edge up your florals, of course!
Take a look at how this classic print earns street chic cred.
making the expected unexpected
One reason that I personally put florals on the back burner for a few seasons is because it didn’t feel new. It was always pastel colors, ditsy floral styles, and super light fabrics. Now, don’t get me wrong–I think those pieces are beautiful. But, they’re not very “me.” Enter this flutter top from Eyeshadow. With its black, turquoise, and orange combination, it caught my eye from the get-go. The crochet yoke and flutter sleeves add even more visual interest, making this a must-have floral for my springtime wardrobe.

Of course, what you pair with any given piece can easily alter the vibe of your outfit. For instance, if I wanted to, I could have softened the look of this blouse by tucking it into a flirty skirt and slipping on these Jellypop wedge sandals. Instead, I cranked up the edge with the help of these Almost Famous Juniors-plus destructed jeans and a classic pair of Keds.
Not only does this look put a new spin on wearing florals–it scores major comfort points, too! The true definition of a “go anywhere” outfit, I could seamlessly transition from window shopping to lunch with friends. In fact, that’s exactly what I did!
