There’s no print quite as fresh and feel-good as the ubiquitous floral. Whether we’re talking a classic Liberty, a fun tropical, or a delicate ditsy print, it’s hard not to feel pretty the moment you slip on a botanical-inspired piece.
Think florals are just for dainty tea parties? Think again. With local brand Chelsea’s bountiful garden of floral-print garments, you’ll have enough styles to choose from to put together an outfit for every occasion. We chose items with bows and ruffle details to complement the feminine print—but if you’re just easing into wearing florals or are not a traditionally girly dresser, keep in mind that you can pair them with more masculine, contrasting pieces like biker jackets, chunky silver accessories, or lace-up booties to toughen them up.
Miranda Priestly might not find these groundbreaking, but we promise these outfits will put a spring in your step and a smile on your face, stat!
LOOK 1: POWER LUNCH
Make an impact with a pussybow blouse in a sheer, breathable fabric—a major bonus in this scorching weather. Toe the line between playful and professional in a high-waist midi pencil skirt with lace-up details and a cheeky slit.
LOOK 2: FANCY DATE
Pull out all the stops in a romantic pink ruffled number that skims your curves in all the right ways. Balance a flirty shoulder cutout with a long asymmetrical hemline that’s both sexy and sophisticated.
LOOK 3: FAMILY DINNER
Dress to impress both your fastidious tita and your fashion-forward cousin in a crisp white top and bold floral pants. Matte bold and pearl earrings are a nice finishing touch. (Bonus: this charming look works when meeting the bae’s parents, too!)
LOOK 4: GARDEN WEDDING
Stand out in a sea of wedding guests with striking florals set against a soft, buttery backdrop. A dramatic shoulder-baring neckline plays well with a more streamlined silhouette, and the color palette makes a statement red lip pop.
