How to Wear Spring’s Prettiest New Print Like a Celebrity

Florals are in full bloom!
Miranda Priestley from The Devil Wears Prada may not agree (“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking”), but in Hollywood these pretty prints are a perennial favourite.
This season, it’s all about garden party prints—think colourful wallpaper-inspired buds and blossoms with a romantic vibe. Perfect for lounging in a stately wicker chair (like Tory Burch’s spring 2017 campaign shot in the Dominican Republic) or pounding the pavement in the big city.
What’s the trick to nailing this fresh look? Keep the silhouette simple, so the print makes a splash.
Reese Witherspoon’s off-the-shoulder version is the ultimate beach-meets-city look. Worn over a bikini on the boardwalk or with heels and a shoulder bag for brunch, this print dress (available from the A-lister’s lifestyle brand Draper James) is a quintessential warm weather must-have.
Kourtney Kardashian is wild for wildflowers this spring. The 38-year-old mega reality star/mom posted a shot on Instagram over Easter weekend wearing an allover floral print jumpsuit with open-toe stilettos. “Queen of Easter,” she captioned it.
Gingham may be a go-to picnic print, but Jennifer Lopez opted for florals—petite faded petals—for her recent lunch date in the park with nine-year-old son Max (Lopez explained the touching reason behind their outing during her recent guest stint on The Real).
Black-ish star Yara Shahidi posed in bold, oversized blooms at Coachella last weekend. Her layered jewellery adds a cool-girl spin to this classic print.
Salma Hayek knows how to heat things up with a glam garden party print. Although, the 50-year-old actress ran into a few technical issues (“What do I do to post a photo using Boomerang without cutting my hair. Someone explain to me, I’m terrible at technology,” she captioned the Instagram photo), she looked like #goals twirling around in her Balenciaga dress and hot pink heels.
Floral prints can have a playful throwback vibe, too. Nicki Hilton paired a pretty print dress with white vintage-inspired accessories, which included a micro mini Dior bag. “Prim + proper ??,” she captioned it. Betty Draper, anyone?
