Floral: Modern, yet Lady-like Casual Dressing

A little floral fun is just what you need when you are getting ready for some summer relaxation. Sometimes, a floral patterned casual dress or tee can conjure up images of stepping off an airplane and being handed a fruity drink and Hawaiian lei…hey, that’s not a bad thing. But they can also be modern, and a lot more stylish than that. Some of them will even work as summer draws to an end and cooler weather starts rolling in (sigh…). See the range of options we love.
If you missed out on how to wear florals for work and after 5, be sure to check them out in our Fashion Finds, and tell us what you think. See you next week!

There’s something just so fresh and vibrant about this simple blue floral pattern. And the silhouette perfectly plays into that, with the elastic detail on the sleeve and neckline – its updated boho.  Have you tried Joie’s jeans? They are an easy contemporary fit, similar to Joe’s Jeans, in soft fabrics. The white would look great with this shirt, and darker denim will extend the life of it.

Free People took an atypical approach to using floral with this sweatshirt, giving it a harder edge that we love. The oversized fit, with a shirttail hem, is perfect for jeans or leggings. And it’s got a lot of detail, so click-thru to get a good look. It has side zips and raw edging along the seams. Proof that casual doesn’t have to be boring.

Nic + Zoe incorporates the floral trend in easy stride with this awesome tunic. The knit fabric is a nice weight, but it’s the details that make this relaxed fit tunic so awesome – touches of color at the neckline and hem really pop against the black and white floral. Side slits along the hem help this top lay smoothly across your hips. Pair it with slim pants or denim leggings for any casual fun.

Perfect for a family brunch. The contrast of cheery daisy against a clean, black background on this Equipment silk blouse is such a fun pick-me-up. It’s a contemporary, but looser fit, with its boxy silhouette that looks great untucked. We really like this top paired with your favorite white or distressed jeans

Floral designs aren’t just for smaller sizes. Johnny Was created this tunic with all sizes in mind. The colors are tranquil and pretty, perfect for the end of summer, in a breezy georgette fabric. We love how the floral pattern is heavier at the top of this tunic, not only drawing the eye up (a great slimming trick), but giving the illusion of falling flowers. Note the back of the top has a gathered waist, giving the tunic – and you – a beautiful shape. Any skinny pant or legging will work with this.

This floral pattern is not as literal as some of our other picks, with more of a graphic tone in its Moroccan feel. J. Crew has thought of every detail for this dress – bra stays, so your straps won’t accidentally show; lining to keep things looking smooth and not cling; and, a pretty dark seam detail at the waist – no belt necessary to accentuate the slimmest parts of our body. This silk dress is perfect with flat sandals. Wear it for anything from a day tooling around town to a baby shower.

Current/Elliott does that “borrowed from the boys” style to perfection, so we love how they’ve feminized this menswear style button down with a sweet, floral pattern. We love the white ground and pink flowers – not just for now, but into fall with dark denim or a pencil skirt. If you prefer darker colors though, they’ve done that, too. It’s a contemporary style, but done in a looser fit.

Well, this is just pure summer fun, isn’t it? Pair it with a simple white tee (long-sleeve or short, depending on the weather) and simple sandals or sneakers. We really like how J. Crew has designed this “miniskirt” to not be too mini and lined it, so it works for all ages.

OK, before you think patterned jeans may not be for you, take a good look at these beautifully printed ones from 7 for all Mankind. Pattern can be worn on all body types, as long as you wear it the right way. This even, smaller pattern creates a sleek look that works even if you think of yourself as more bottom heavy. And once you’ve got these jeans on, you don’t need to do much else to have a polished casual outfit – we like these jeans paired with a simple white tank top or a button-down shirt to contrast the feminine floral. (Tip: just partially tuck in the front of your shirt for a cool, casual look that also minimizes the hip/behind area.)
