Trend Watch: Flower Power (10 Bright & Bloomy Floral Blazers)

Floral jackets and blazers were all over the runway for Spring/Summer 2012–read on for tips on how to wear this ultra-pretty trend (and 10 ways to get the look for less, too!)…

 

TREND WATCH: FLORAL BLAZERS


What you need to know: Floral blazers were all over S/S2012 runways, showing up at  labels like Topshop, Cynthia Rowley, Rebecca Minkoff (and even at a few edgier labels like Prabal Gurung and Celine, too!). These aren’t the too-darling floral jackets of the 90’s–luxe jacquard fabrics, tuxedo lapels, and even moto jacket shapes keep this jacket sophisticated, polished, and chic.

How to wear this trend: While the “co-ord’ look  (coordinating your jacket + bottom in matching fabric) has also been a big trend this spring, I think that floral blazers are best worn paired with silk blouses, slim pants, solid-hued skirts, or even paired over dresses on cool summer nights. Coordinate your nail polish to match a color in the print and keep accessories to a minimum–picking the wrong accessories (or over accessorizing) can instantly ruin the look.  Sleek shoes and handbags are best–they let the pretty floral print s do all the talking.
