May Flowers: 4 Favorite Bloggers Wearing Florals 4 Different Ways

Now that April showers are long gone (we hope!) and May is in full bloom, we are looking to some of our favorite fashion bloggers to see how they are wearing florals this spring. Check out our picks for our favorite springtime inspiration, there’s something for every style!

As the warm weather kicks in each year, floral prints are always on trend. This year, the pretty print popped up all over the place, including a huge trend this spring, the floral pant. Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific shows us how she styled her Topshop pants by boldly mixing them with an animal print blouse, a neutral Céline bag (which of course goes with anything!), and simple black pumps. If you’re feeling daring, try mixing prints like Blair. Opt for a muted, neutral hue since your pants will be making the statement.

Jessica Quirk of What I Wore shows us an effortless look of a floral dress paired simply with a skinny belt and wedges. This is a perfect option for the workplace (just add a cardigan or blazer) or for a daytime weekend event with girlfriends or family. Add a leather jacket or blazer and this look can easily take you from day to night! Julie Sarinana of Sincerely, Jules also shows us a floral dress, but this time, she’s taking it to the max in a long sexy maxi dress with an oh-so-high slit up the side. She pairs the dress with a pair of rugged boots and slouchy bag for a bohemian-chic look. Swap out the boots and bag for a pair of pumps and structured clutch and you’ve got a perfect look for a fancy night out.

Lastly, Aimee Song of Song of Style wears a floral blazer, which in my opinion, goes with almost anything. She styles the blooming blazer with a neutral strapless dress, but pair this pretty topper with anything from shorts and a sequin tank, to jeans and a white tee, to a sexy bodycon dress and you’ll find it to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe this spring!

All of these fabulous floral looks will take you from spring all the way through summer, and will have you looking pretty, feminine and chic all season long! Let us know your favorite ways to wear florals on Facebook or Twitter!
