As fashion’s favorite cinematic icon, Miranda Priestly (played by the legendary Meryl Streep), once said, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.”
Though the idea of florals for spring may be 100 percent expected, they’re just such a classic. I mean, our style is constantly being influenced by the world around us. So when there are gardens full of daisies and tulips blooming left and right, shouldn’t our clothing reflect that? I don’t know a single person who isn’t delighted at the sight of flowers (unless you’re allergic, in which case, I am so so sorry). When we see flowers, we think spring. It’s human nature!
Though designers are constantly trying to create clothing for spring that isn’t so cliché, it’s hard to stray away from good old-fashioned florals. Walk into any clothing store between the months of February and May and you’ll feel as if you’ve just entered the perfect picnic spot. Nature is one of the main influences on fashion, and designers continue to make us feel as if we are outside when we really aren’t. That means that even during the worst April shower, you can just throw on a flowy floral sundress like mine and instantly forget about the real-life weather out your window.
No matter the forecast, you can never go wrong with wearing florals in the spring. Add on a statement bag, some booties or sandals, your favorite pair of sunglasses (only if it’s sunny though, don’t be that person), and you should be good to go. Even if floral isn’t the most avant-garde and unexpected pattern to wear during these warmer months, it’ll always be classic.
