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!
