Ok, real talk: we all know that floral for spring is not exactly a ground-breaking new concept. That said, each year when spring flowers start to pop up, we’re suddenly desperate to work florals into our wardrobes... so why fight it?! Luckily, Dynamite has come out with a range of pieces that feel fresh and funky – and not old-lady at all. To show you how versatile this classic print can be, we’ve put together three outfits that will satisfy whatever level of floral you’re in the mood for this season.
1) Rock an artsy floral from head-to-toe.
Whether you're going on vacation, strutting down Corydon, or attending a work meeting, this head-to-toe floral combo will have you turning heads as you flaunt your devotion to spring flowers. The pants are a flattering high rise, and the top is meant to be worn in a loose and comfortable fit. We love the artsy vibe of this subtle floral, and the effect shines when you stick with pale pastels in your accessories.
2) Get flirty with a floral mini.
We’ve been drawn to rosy colours of all kinds lately, and this peachy hue is giving us life. Between the rich satin fabric, double-button closures, and flared silhouette, this little number is the ultimate mini skirt for making a statement this spring. Catch another trend by pattern-mixing with a striped blouse, and add sporty runners for a casual, modern spin.
3) Go bold with dark florals.
Your go-to casual look – think skinny jeans and slogan tee – will suddenly look completely new when you drape on a floral kimono. Dark backgrounds are a great way to really amp up a floral print, and a knee-grazing length doesn't hurt either. Have fun with your accessories to bridge the gap between the more casual base and dramatic topper.
