Five Different Florals to Incorporate Into Your Springtime Look

In The Devil Wears Prada — a movie that every fashion lover likely knows by heart — Meryl Streep’s character famously berates a stylist’s unoriginality at an editorial meeting, commenting, “Flowers? For spring? How groundbreaking.” The humour in the insult lies in the notion that once spring arrives, florals become so commonplace in fashion, that they’re hardly worth including in a magazine spread.

Yet while florals certainly do become more frequent once springtime hits, that doesn’t mean they don’t make a valuable addition to your wardrobe. There’s a reason that florals reliably re-emerge each spring: most prints can be trusted to be classy and elegant, and give your look a fresher feel — especially after all the heavy monochromes and blacks more associated with winter months. In addition, more often than not, no two florals are exactly the same — contrary to what Miranda Priestly says, most flower designs are far from boring.

Come springtime, florals can be found in tops, dresses, rompers, you name it. Here are some of our top floral looks for the spring.
