How to Wear Spring's Dark Floral Trend Right Now

There are plenty of reasons to celebrate the fact that spring is almost — almost! — here. Clothing, though, isn’t one of them. It’s not that there aren’t tons of super-exciting trends rolling into stores at the moment. In a perverse twist, it’s actually because there are. The problem: I’m short on patience. And right now we're in one of those in-between times where I always rush to restock my wardrobe with a flurry of new pieces and then... I wait. For weeks, even months, my new items hang in my closet until the winter-spring gap finally closes. 

There’s one new trend, though, that offers instant gratification that lasts: fashion’s new take on florals. Instead of the expected soft, prim prints, spring's new breed is revealing its dark side by contrasting bright blooms against a dusky backdrop — and this tiny tweak makes it easy to straddle the change of seasons with style. 

Case in point: Anthropologie’s fit-and-flare dress with its oversized blooms below you there. Imagine pairing it with tights and ankle boots this weekend. In July it’ll still be holding its own in your wardrobe. Just replace the tights and booties with bare legs and sandals.

And it’s not alone. Each of the 10 items ahead promise to work right now and when the weather turns warm.
