Spring florals part 1: Tops

12

theory floral shirt

It looks like spring is going to be a big season for florals—I had to divide this post into a two-parter because there were so many good ones to fit in. I’m a fan of all kinds of them, but my favorites are those against a dark background, like this one from Theory.

taylor floral shirt

I like the sweet print and subtle flutter sleeves on this Rebecca Taylor number.

h&m floral shirt

A thing I learned about H&M today: most of their stuff, like this cute peasant top, goes up to size 16.

mango floral shirt

There’s something a little Asian about the print on this blouse. I also like the deep V-neck.

sanctuary floral shirt

This would really pop under a blazer.

shoshanna floral shirt

The green background here is just so good.

kooples floral shirt

Wee yellow roses make this button-down a kind of funky choice.

joie floral shirt

I love this top: super-feminine, with a very subdued print.

madewell floral shirt

And here’s a much louder choice: something about the flowers with stripes really appeals.

rinaldi floral shirt

A fun little graphic print on an ever-versatile button-down.

This has a very flattering silhouette.

The print on this wrap blouse is just unstoppable.

joie floral shirt1

I like the smocking on the neckline and sleeves of this Joie top.

mango floral shirt2

Another pretty fun and loud blouse.

Such a lovely, delicate cami.

h&m extended floral shirt

This print looks like Liberty, but it’s really H&M.

j crew floral shirt

And here’s one of J. Crew’s excellent Liberty prints.

boden floral shirt

I like that this Boden floral almost looks like dots.

mango floral shirt3

I think this Mango blouse looks like it’s from A.P.C.

h&m floral shirt1

The pastel pink here is a touch girly, but the black background balances it out.

r13 floral shirt

Such a great Liberty print on this shrunken R13 button-down.

h&m red floral shirt

And I just like this because it’s red—and cheap.

 

Here are a bunch of pretty silk tops.

    Great suggestions! A little floral-print top is exactly what I want to be wearing right now, but alas, it is 30 degrees.

    I didn’t realize that Nordies had started carrying Boden.

    Cute prints. Am I crazy, but I don’t understand the photoshopping in the A.P.C. image? The graphic designer should be fired.

      You mean the 1/2 sized leg?

    Excellent timing for these tops––we’re going to have another eighty-something degree day and all I want to do is wear flowy colorful things to distract me from the unseasonably warm temps!

    The J.Crew Liberty and the Mango LOUD blouse are both “needs” for my closet!

    This morning I was all revved up wondering: What is it going to be today, Kim France?!?! And you did not disappoint! Love floral tops and this selection is spot on. I can not wait to see part two. The black with wee yellow roses wants to be mine😄.

      Me too! Both dark florals. Loved this selection even though I despair of winter ever ending.

    Am I the only one who LOVES floral prints but rarely wears them? I have bought a lot of floral prints in the last year because they give me googly eyes but I don’t feel totally at ease in them or struggle with styling them?

    (I also have a soft spot in particular for florals on a dark background.)

      They’re so not me, and yet ever so appealing! And I’m drawn to the dark side, too.

    Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.

    (couldn’t resist- watched The Devil Wears Prada with my pre-teen yesterday. )

    These are beautiful and even tho I’m not a floral print person, I’m quite tempted by the ones with dark backgrounds. They look new and fresh to my eye.
