Darcee Botanical Bloom Print Wrap Sweater
Ted Baker London
Sold by: Ted Baker London

Fit Guide
Isn't this open cardigan from contemporary label, Ted Baker, just lovely? The delicate way they've inserted the floral fabric on the back of this pale pink, light weight wool cardigan is airy and feminine. Yet, it doesn't cross the line to girly, as something in this color palette could do. Pair it with a simple ivory shell and any appropriate bottom for the occasion - dark trousers for work, jeans for a more casual day, the coordinating skirt if you want to dress it up for a shower or brunch.

Florals are Having a Real Moment: No Wallflowers Here

Over the top girly and flowery is generally not our style. But florals this season have taken on a level of sophistication that we just can’t ignore. And we will continue to see florals into the fall season, so many pieces will easily transition into your cooler weather wardrobe. Florals can be muted and soft to bigger and bolder. They can even mix-and-match with other patterns, if you feel a little more daring. No matter how you choose to incorporate them, florals work to create a refined and lady-like look that you will be proud to wear…no wallflowers here.

We’ll be talking about how to wear floral for work (Tuesday), after 5 (Wednesday), and for casual days (Thursday) all week, so head on over to Fashion Finds for even more of our favorites. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media.
If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer.

Kate Spade - Cedar Street Floral Small Harmony Handbag

Have a little fun with this floral leather tote from Kate Spade. It’s actually more versatile than you think. It will go with all of your neutrals and has interior pockets, so you won’t have any trouble keeping track of your keys or phone. Big enough to hold the rest of your essentials, with room to spare for an umbrella, your iPad, snacks…we’re not judging.

Before you dismiss these as too impractical, let us convince you…do you have a lot of solids in your closet – solid navy tees, sweaters, skirts, or blazers? Jeans and basic white, grey, and black tees? These will work beautifully with all of them, adding sophisticated style to an otherwise basic outfit. And unlike many patterned shoes, the floral is printed on to leather, not fabric.

We can’t decide if we like the navy (shown) or the white (click through the “shop it” button to see) better. It’s the simple floral pattern we love. Light and airy, and perfect for this time of year, both colors are easy casual options that work with jeans or even a simple skirt for a casual day of shopping. The sweatshirt styling makes it an easy fit for everyone.

This contemporary line, Generation Love, has been growing in popularity over the last few years, and we’ve certainly been fans. The women that design it, Roni Hirshberg and Audrey Bressa-Valcourt, have easy fabulous style and it shines through in all of the pieces they create. This tee is no exception. The mix of easy heather grey cotton with grey and white floral crepe gives a basic tee a special twist. We love it with simple white jeans or boyfriend jeans. As the weather cools, throw your favorite cardigan over it.

Going to an afternoon affair or outdoor event one evening before the summer winds down? This is your dress! We love the muted floral color palette, popped with the pink trim at the waist and along the back. The back has a triangular cutout, but you can still wear a bra with this dress, no problem. It’s lined, too, which helps keep things looking smooth, though we do always suggest shapewear.

Tory Burch - Zandi Flower Print Jersey Crepe A-Line Dress
Tory Burch creates beautiful designs, in great modern fits that work for so many women, which is why we chose this dress. The knot detail accentuates your waist, and then drapes easily around the hips. This dress is not meant to be fitted, the light jersey fabric will move easily around you. Perfect for work with nude or black pumps.
