Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada memorably shuts down an idea by saying, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” But sometimes the most predictable print is the best print. Floral print has been around for decades, but it’s about choosing the right kind of patterns. Lately, I have seen florals on flowy dresses that remind me of the ‘90s. Brandy Melville makes popular dresses like the one aforementioned, like the Jada dress. Florals aren’t always a staple in every girl’s closet but it definitely brightens your mood when you’re wearing it.

This Fashionista wears a simple yet sweet strapless dress to class. Summer classes may be a drag, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little excitement to your outfit. Dresses are the perfect piece for effortless style. The floral print really brings her outfit to life and adds color to a dreary day. The flowers, at a closer glance, are in a watercolor style print. Watercolor prints are also making a huge splash, creating a new trend in the fashion scene by proving to be a subtle and elegant print. Watercolor prints are usually floral patterns like the Longline Watercolor Floral Top from Forever 21. Regardless of the style of the print, florals is always a fun print to wear.

How To: Florals are literally in every trendy store; it’s just about finding the right florals to fit your wardrobe. Floral covered pieces are definitely popular and are always a safe choice. If you dare to be daring, then you can opt for trendier pieces that make a statement with florals instead. The floral wrap blouse from Topshop has an interesting cut and definitely interesting floral print on it, and it’s certainly a statement piece to experiment with.
