Floral Fashions Are Not Scary

.. at least they don’t need to be.

Spring’s budding floral prints emphasize a feminine aura that’s all our own.  Gone are the days of overdone paintlike prints that are better seen on canvas than dresses.  Dare to wear 70’s-inspired silk, drapey dresses and even diaper bags that promise to  rock your rapidly-growing world.

The secret to wearing florals in a non-laughable way: Pair these pieces with hardened essentials such as  low-heeled western boots and dark denim.  Keep accessories solid: enamel bangles or some muted metal jewelry.

Drawstring and Jeans So bohemian, so glam, so comfortable.  The luxury of a silk kimono pairs well with your favorite jeans.. flare or skinny.  Antique floral print Drawstring Top by Alice + Olivia, available at Saks.
