Floral print trend at Diane von Furstenberg show

Are you ready to look in full bloom with this season’s hottest trend, sprouting up on every runway from jackets and pants to skirts and dresses? While certainly not for wallflowers, floral prints can seem a little daunting at first. However, welcoming the new season in style can be effortless if you follow the rule of less is always more. No need to worry about how to take this straight-from-the-runway-trend to your own closet. Here’s a guide to looking fresh and modern in your everyday attire as you explore your head-to-hem flower power:

Rihanna in Topshop shorts

As seen on Rihanna, you can start your summer in style in basic shorts.  The key when wearing floral prints on pants or shorts is to keep the top portion simple, wearing neutral colors. The singer pairs her Topshop floral hotpants with a coral sweater, sheer tights and sneakers. In hotter temps, these shorts could work with a basic black tank or slouchy tee with sandals or ballet flats.

Jenna Dewan in Paige Denim skinnies

Jenna Dewan looks easy and carefree in floral skinny jeans. She keeps the color palette neutral in a simple tee and fedora. The key when wearing floral denim is to pick one color from the jeans to wear on the top half. These could work dressed up in nude heels with a frilly, flirty blouse or dressed down as seen on Jenna in flats.

Solange Knowles in Diane von Furstenberg

If you’re worried about how to translate this look from runway to office, Solange is the perfect example of going bold in a standard suit. The singer-turned-DJ wears a beautiful Diane von Furstenberg printed blue-and-white blazer and pencil skirt combo that can work in any office environment or corporate meeting. Although she mixes and matches patterns here with the blouse underneath the blazer and the bright yellow pumps, you can tone down the look with a basic white blouse or camisole.

Rachel Bilson in Erdem Resort collection

This is another chic and sophisticated way to pull off the floral print trend at work or for a night out on the town. Hart of Dixie star Rachel Bilson keeps it structured and tailored in a floral print blouse paired with coral trousers. While Rachel opted for a head-to-toe coral motif, black trousers, a blazer or skinny jeans would be just as stylish too.

Michelle Obama in Tracy Reese

Wearing a dress is probably the easiest way to tackle the bold trend. First Lady Michelle Obama looks impeccable in this blue halter frock. The style is versatile enough to wear to a summer wedding or a fun outing. For bonus style, try wearing a floral dress like this with a pair of heels, bright flats or gladiator sandals.
