Spring is in bloom — and so are floral patterns, on everything from clothing to office and kitchen accessories. The editors at DailyCandy have discovered a variety of stylish, affordable ways to make your season blossom.
Florals for the closet
It’s easy to incorporate florals into your wardrobe without looking like a wildflower patch. A sweet, simple flowery sundress, paired with a jean jacket for errands or a blazer for the office, can be your wardrobe centerpiece. Pair lightweight tropical skinny jeans from Topshop with a neutral top and simple accessories — like an almost-sheer white top from Zara — for a breezy daytime look.
And read our tulips: Accessories are a great way to be on-trend without breaking the bank. An Urban Outfitters wallet and Betsey Johnson watch add a bouquet of color to any outfit. And let’s not forget that spring has its fair share of rainy days, so suit up in garden wellies and a printed umbrella. Beat the drizzle in sunny style.

Jeans, Topshop, $80

Florals for the kitchen
Add a dash of floral flavor to the most popular room in your home: the kitchen. Hand-painted measuring cups and dishwasher-safe, heat-resistant embroidered trivets by Anouk Jansen make the dinnertime routine rosier. Marimekko paper napkins turn any meal into a garden party, and an orange and yellow floral-inspired apronfrom Anthropologie could almost be worn as a dress. And, finally, toast to spring by serving drinks, like fresh lemonade, in beautiful enamel tumblers, handcrafted by local artisans in India and made from recycled aluminum.
