Style Guide: 12 Budget-Friendly Floral Must-Haves

Hi ladies, with winter quickly becoming a distant memory, the layers are lighter, the palettes are fresher, and the season of floral fever is officially in bloom. Botanical prints have long been a seasonal staple, so adding new flowery frocks to your closet is always a safe bet when it comes to navigating your way through springtime trends. From preppy, light-hued florals to bohemian black-based pieces, there’s a wide range of flowery prints to match your personal style and satisfy your floral appetite. To help narrow the search for your next great floral find, I’ve collected some of my favorite pieces, all available for under $100…

White-Based Floral Prints:

When it comes to florals, I’ve always preferred white-based prints. They’re classic, feminine and full of color, which make them easy to style. Pretty much any piece that possesses these bright and airy prints has the power to be a springtime hero piece. When styling your white-based prints, keep it simple and go with a solid colored separate that pulls from one of the shades in your floral design.

Black-Based Floral Prints:

Unlike the overtly feminine white-based floral prints, black-based florals have the ability to actually be kind of gritty. Think less “Garden Party” and more “Boho Barbeque”. Expect to see lots of these prints trotting through the dessert during festival season. When it comes to accessorizing your black-based florals, use this rare opportunity to make your flower prints edgy by adding a vintage denim jacket, a studded cross-body bag, or fringe ankle boots.

Floral prints aren’t restricted to just garments, so if you’re weary of this bold design, try starting small with flower appliques and laser cut floral printed accessories. For a subtle start, try adding a simple floral handbag with your go-to little black dress.
