“Florals for spring…

…how ground breaking…”   

                             — Miranda Priestly, Devil Wears Prada.

Well, it’s spring again, and the stores are bursting with floral prints. It seems every spring we are faced with the same offerings.

If your wardrobe is bursting with florals, here are some ideas to consider:

 

 

Floral and stripe  stripe top floral skirt

This combination, right, works because it is anchored by the navy in both the striped top and floral skirt. Also, prints mix well when the scale of one is larger than the other.

Floral and Polka Dots
