I do love a cute floral top


My rule for florals is the same as the one I abide by for leopard prints and most all other patterns too: keep the silhouette simple and straightforward, like on this pretty adorable top from Sezane.

The touch of black lace at the collar gives this top a little edge.

I love bright red and yellow together—such a cheery ketchup-and-mustard mix.

I’d throw this tank on under a blazer, throw on some jeans, and call it good.

A sweet Liberty of London print on a popover with the just-right amount of ruffle.

The smocked waist here makes for a flattering shape.

The print on his asymmetrical top has a painterly, one-of-a-kind quality.

This is a good choice for those who usually think florals are too girly, because it’s so sophisticated and graphic.

I just love the green here, and the sexily slouchy neckline.


The barely-there grey print on this Rebecca Taylor blouse is perfect for those who like florals but aren’t so cool with wearing colors.

This is just a really interesting print—I especially dig the color combination.

I’m very tempted by this happy red cotton button-down, which reminds me of prints you find in Provence on bags and tablecloths and such.

The sheer sleeves here are a chic little touch.

The pleating on this Vince button-down is nicely unexpected.

A nicely priced twist-front top with the eensiest of floral prints.


I’d layer this sheer blouse with a black silk cami.

And this Xirena top skews just the right amount of Hippie Girl.

I think this top is the perfect combination of graceful and versatile.

A black and white floral is a good candidate for print-mixing.

And finally: the drawstring waist here keeps things neat.

    Some nice choices here, but of course the ones I really like — Saloni and Rebecca Taylor — are far, far out of my budget range. So, sigh.

    The red tied-at-the-waist Sezane top connection went to a different blouse. I am NOT a ruffle person under any circumstance, but I’m kinda loving that Liberty print with the delicate pleating and collar ruffle. It looks like the kind of top you’d throw on all summer with jeans or a skirt or even cut-offs. Humm……
