We like big blooms and we cannot lie. Vintage-inspired florals were seen on the runways of designers like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marc Jacobs, but they were hardly the garden variety floral set. Bold and retro, these patterns spliced with spring classics like polka dots or stripes to feel fresh. For super feminine pretty, grab a dress in a gauzy pastel. Or add a virtual bouquet to your ensemble, a.k.a. the perfect floral handbag. Sexy skirts look lux, especially with ruching and ruffles. So go ahead, pick a pretty one and embrace petal power.
Beyonce blew us away in her Zimmermann baby blue minidress. Go pastel and pair with delicate metallic sandals, or opt for the midi and add patterned tights and a chunky knit for rainy day chic.

A pop of flower power can uplift any basics. In this case, one element is all you need to plant a seed. Your LBD and a sexy garden slingback? Yes, please.
Style your skirt by mixing patterns. Pair polka dots or a striped blouse with a structured floral skirt for smart-cute vibes. To keep florals more funky than fussy, add a moto jacket and combat boots.
