Floral print in the spring, you say? Surprising, we know. But don’t be so quick to judge, we’re loving this trend. Compared to last year, it has a stronger influence as we’ve seen many fashion forward celebrities and models rock this trend on their days off. Designer Phillip Lim had a big role in bringing the print back in his 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2013 runway this year by introducing floral in trousers, dresses, tops in mostly all silk. Some of the pieces included only pops of “ditsy” floral print (as he calls it) randomly placed but provided just the right amount of floral for those who don’t prefer a whole the bold print everywhere. Other designers like Inkblot and Scanlan & Theodore also introduced floral print trousers and pieces in their runways this year. Celebrities that have been seen in the vivid spring-like trousers include Rosie Huntington, Selena Gomez, and Jessica Alba. Although the trousers may be somewhat tricky to wear, we’ve got you covered below.

Try the Trend

Floral printed trousers are a loud statement and for the minimalist it’s necessary to pair this up with a solid colored shirt (depending on the color scheme of the trousers it could be any color) and shoes as well like some classic ankle strap heels. Accessories aren’t really necessary since the trousers are already the main center of attention and anything more colorful will look overwhelming but if you must accessories, choose a thin necklace or some stud earrings. The makeup should also be natural, a classic pink pout and flirty lashes are enough. Hair can be anything you like from a messy bun to a deep sided part.

Now, for the more daring Chicistas out there, you can try the floral print suit or a floral print dress. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the same exact print as the trousers but you must include a solid colored clothing item because then you’ll really be pushing the envelope.

This trend is really fun and appropriate for the time of year so give it a go. You don’t have to wear the trousers if they’re too much for you—shirts and skirts work too. It all depends on what you’re comfortable with but we’re sure you’ll pull it off just fine.
