Everything’s coming up roses — and daffodils and daisies and anemones, too. Designers with a floral fixation strew blooms on sheaths, skirts, shirts and shoes on spring runways from New York to Paris. One particularly exuberant look in Jenna Lyons’s J. Crew collection painted a super-bright palette of pink, green and yellow petals for a mixed bouquet (see photo). Trying this at home has its perils unless you’ve got a master’s in pairing patterns. Beginners, select one petal-printed piece before heading into full-fledged flower-girl territory.
The black canvas background saves these multicolored rose-print Vans sneakers from being too cutesy. The contrasting white rubber edges give them a vintage vibe. All in all, your feet will be fit to party at a casual soiree or to walk around the neighborhood. Come warmer weather, pair with white jeans or a flare skirt. $55 at www.nastygal.com.
Neon gives this sweet, ladylike collar a touch of sass. An early-spring pick-me-up or a summer staple, the necklace has a powerful pop of pink and yellow that can dress up a basic work outfit or up the glamour quotient on, say, a strapless cocktail frock. $55 at www.topshop.com.
Floral-patterned jeans don’t flatter every figure. Er, better make that most figures. But should you be so svelte, dig deep into your wallet for these on-trend soft pastel flower-printed denim pants from C. Wonder. Stretch skinny floral jean, $128 at C. Wonder, Tysons Corner, 1961 Chain Bridge Rd., McLean, 703-761-3970 and www.cwonder.com.
