How to do floral prints

Let's be honest, Kelly Kapowski was adorable in her floral prints and you're not exactly mad that the trend is back this spring. However, there is a big difference between being Kelly-esque and grandmother-(not so)-chic.

If it's floral and ruffley, it runs the risk of being a little too innocent. Cut the frills with a fierce jacket on top of a girly dress. Try the Open Ruched Boyfriend Blazer from Silence and Noise. The way it nips at the waist won't make you look bulky if you throw it over a loose dress.

If you're short on cash and don't already have a longer blazer, try a cropped one. The shorter hem will be equally as flattering.

Remember to opt for smaller prints, too. Though large patterns are easy to find this season, they only flatter those who are tiny.

For a flirty look, try the Floral Chiffon Peplum Tube Dress from Urban Renewal. For something a little more sophisticated, try the Favourite Jersey Dress from Boden.

If you're not sure you're ready to dive head first into the whole floral ensemble, try it in moderation. Check out Fred Flare's Rose Ring, J.Crew's Flutter-Flower Clutch, J.Crew's Faille Flower Headband, or Bettye Muller's Rita Floral Print Pump
