We have to admit, there's something a bit predictable about donning dresses that look like they're made of flowers once the clouds start to lift and the mercury starts to rise. Despite the fact that it's been done before, there's just something about floral prints that goes hand in hand with nice weather. And today in New York, where the high is slated to be in the mid-80s, it's the perfect excuse to indulge in a little flower power. Florals don't have to look dowdy; there are plenty of fresh options on the market to help you bloom. Also, none of our picks cost more than $150, so they won't break the bank if you're saving for a spring getaway.
We recommend taking these looks to the beach, on a picnic, or, with a neutral piece or two thrown into the mix, to the office.
