Floral prints are definitely hot this summer. The great news is that colors and patterns don’t much matter. (The Hippie in us is loving this trend — Flower Power all the way, baby!)

Unsure about how to incorporate florals into your wardrobe? Follow these tips for adding some fresh blooms to your summer look:

  1. Get into the shopping mood by stopping at the fragrance counter first and asking to try the latest floral scent.
  2. Look for an unusual, standout floral piece that will coordinate with a few things you already have. For example, the boots pictured below are absolutely charming and the perfect “wow” piece — so long as you don’t have to purchase an entire outfit to go with them.
  3. If floral patterns feel too “frilly,” consider choosing prints in cool colors or prints that mix florals with stripes or plaids.
  4. If you’re not interested in expanding your wardrobe — or if your wallet is a little on the slender side — consider accessorizing your summer wardrobe with inexpensive floral-inspired jewelry, sunglasses or patterned hosiery.
  5. If all else fails, tiptoe over to your neighbor’s garden, snag a bloom and tuck it behind your ear. Nothing beats the real thing!
