Spring is in the air! Well, it is arriving at a snail’s pace in D.C., but still, I am trying to stay positive. Florals are a big trend right now. So having a few floral pieces in your closet is a must for anyone who is looking to maintain a trendy and current style. Whether you are dressing up for a night out or keeping it casual for a night in, a nice floral print will keep you looking fresh and stylish this spring and well into the summer. It is hard for me to pick a favorite trend this season, but florals are up there with my current stripe obsession. So, here are my four floral closet staples you need for this spring and summer. There are four categories listed below and each has a few items listed, in a rough order from casual to fancy.
First here’s a peak at one of the floral dresses featured below. I wore this dress last weekend, and the thicker scuba material is made of is perfect for spring. Also, I am loving duty blue and rosey hues these days!! Is it just me?

Scarves are one of my favorite accessories, and it is not just because I am only cold. I love to get a new scarf each season because it can easily take a jeans and plain shirt from blah to beautiful. A trendy floral scarf, like the ones below, will keep your wardrobe feeling more current and updated too.
Everyone needs a floral dress right? I mean I feel like this is up there with a little black dress. Floral dresses are so pretty in the spring and summer, especially for work, a fun date night or as a wedding guest.
This staple is my favorite when it comes to updating your work clothes. However, I did just by the Pleione hoodie below and it is super soft and comfortable. I love the look of bold and small floral prints on shirts as well.
Shoes, like scarves, are a fun way to add some interest to any outfit. The Keds and Vans below might be my favorite. Keds is doing a collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. and I’m in love with all the styles! This season there are also a lot of floral embroidery on heels. Like the Chloe heels below, this trend is very pretty and more subtle – perfect for those who are not a fan of a bold floral pattern on your feet!
So there we have it – floral scarves, floral dresses, floral shirts and floral shoes – the four closet staples your wardrobe is calling for! Aren’t these items staples a fun way to spice up a basic or blah outfit!? A floral item from each of these categories will definitely set up your wardrobe for spring and well into the summer. If you aren’t a fan of floral patterns, getting some of the items I mentioned with ruffles or stripes would be another way to incorporate some trendy pieces into your wardrobe.
Are there any floral closet staples I shared that you will be wearing this spring or plan to buy for summer? Are there other floral items you love that I didn’t include? Share with me your thoughts and tell me how you really feel about the floral trend!

I love to add a little floral during the Summer or Spring months, large floral print is my favorite. I have notice that is what is trending right now.

The floral trend annoyed me a bit. However, it’s starting to grow on me and a lot of those outfits are adorable.
I love the blue and pink in your dress! It’s the perfect Spring look.
What a co-incidence. I am wearing a floral top today and I stumble upon your post. 🙂 I have all the mentioned things but the shoes.So.. now I know what I need to buy next ..
Yes and yes! the problem is, the florals in my closet are already in full bloom but mother nature has other plans :/
Tell me about it! I feel like I have to take spring into my own hands this year. I’ve decided to dress like it’s spring even if it doesn’t feel like it haha!
I absolutely love the floral trend but haven’t yet figured out how to incorporate it into my own wardrobe. As someone who tends to stick with solid colors, I’ve been a bit intimated to branch out into such a bold pattern but I am so down to try a pair of floral shoes or a light printed scarf! Thanks for the tips!
Love your floral dress! I am always down for a beautiful floral summer dress, wish I was brave enough to try scarves and shoes with patterns!
This is my favorite season exactly because of all the flower prints and airy fabrics. And those shoes! Super cute! Thanks for the great post!
I love your floral dress ♡ you look wonderful in it!
Nothing spells Spring like florals! I love flowers, and these outfits and scarfs are delightful. I love the blue and pink dress you wore – its gorgeous!
I love the floral prints in spring, but I’ve never been able to pull them off. The lines of the clothes are adorable though!
These are great. I love the spring colors and there is so much possibility with what you can do.
I love the idea of florals in the spring. I couldn’t wear most of these, though, because it’s way too hot in South Texas for long sleeves! The majority of my wardrobe for every season is sleeveless!! I do love all of those shoes, though!
I am all about the floral dresses this season. Fun, Bright and full of Spring!
