Florals for spring…nothing novel. But flowers are definitely back and in bloom this season. This spring’s flowers have taken on several new twists: fluorescent brights, black and whites, and 3-dimensional blooms.

Fluorescent Brights
As seen in seasons past, the color trend has continued to be brilliant and bold. Bright graphic floral prints look best on dresses (more fabric, less confusion). Throw on a pair of flirty heels or gladiator sandals and the look is complete.

Black and White
Have you ever seen a black flower? This classic color combination looks super chic even as the floral motif. Definitely the most versatile of the floral trends, this color combination can be worn casually during the day or dressy at night.

3-Dimensional Blooms
Everything is coming up roses… literally. From shoes to hats to dresses, basics becomes accessorized and embellished with 3D faux flowers this season. Add some zip to your outfit with a flowery add-on.
