Summer Trend: Fabulous Florals

Diane Von Furstenberg and Nanette Lepore are among the designers who have featured floral pieces in their recent runway collections. Bringing these amazing looks to everyday wear may not always be the simplest thing to do, but the next few pieces are some of my current floral favorites.

Urban Outfitters

The MINKPINK Floral Strapless Dress is fitted on top, creating a flattering look to the upper body. It tightens at the waist, accentuating it, and then proceeds to flare out. Its pattern is appealing and cute without being overbearing. The mix of colors makes it the perfect summer dress.
Available at Urban Outfitters for $88.00

I love the Urban Renewal Cotton Floral Skirt. The white flowers pop against its bright color. Paired with a simple white tank and cute sandals creates an everyday take on the floral trend.
Available at Urban Outfitters for $48.00

Forever 21

Forever 21’s Ruffle Front Floral Chiffon Top has a great color palette. Its soft watercolors blend with the ruffles creating a flirty summer top. The top can be easily dressed up or down and at $19.80, you couldn’t ask for a better deal!
Available at Forever 21 for $19.80

For anyone who wants take part in the floral trend without diving in headfirst, try a pair of the Rose Bouquet Earrings. The earrings are available in four different colors. If you want to be bright and bold (it is summer after all), buy a pair of the light blue or yellow earrings. Otherwise, try the pale pink or white to easily mix and match these earrings into your outfits.
Available at Forever 21 for $4.80

Liz Claiborne

If a floral accessory is your calling, but you’re not in for a new pair of studs, try Liz Claiborne’s Floral Pendant Necklace. Its simplicity makes it easy to use, while its vivid color makes it a great summer necklace.
Available at the Liz Claiborne website for $32.00


Matty M 'Graffiti Floral' Halter Top is a great summer blouse. Due to its silky texture and vibrant watercolor floral pattern, this top has a feminine feel. Its elastic waistband and halter neck tie makes it an elegant and flattering piece.
Available at Nordstrom for $88.00

Charlotte Russe

I’ve always got my eyes out for a great pair of flats. The Painterly Floral Flats takes a closet staple and brightens it up with this floral trend. The flowers are subtle, allowing the bright colors to really stand out. These flats are an easy and fun way to liven up a summer outfit.
Available at Charlotte Russe for $18.99
