Flirty florals

Floral prints and accents add a summery touch to whatever you are wearing. Check out these summer florals to wear right now.

Flirty florals

Floral dress

Floral dresses are very popular this year, from minis to maxis. The style we love the most, however, is the fit-and-flare. Look for these ultra-feminine, pleated dresses that hit right at the knee. We love the Muse cutaway shoulder stretch cotton sateen dress with its lush floral print and box pleated skirt. (Nordstrom, $118)

Floral bottoms

You don't always have to wear your florals up top. Floral pants and skirts are also trendy this season. Partner your floral bottoms with a simple solid top to keep all the emphasis on the pattern. You can find adorable floral mini skirts, skinny floral leggings and comfy floral wide-leg pants. We love the Nanette Lepore Kiss Me Floral capris. These eye-catching pants feature a colorful neon print of tiny little flowers. (Bloomingdale's, $298)

Floral jewelry

You don't have to dress head-to-toe in floral prints. Instead, get into this trend a little more subtly with floral jewelry. You can find colorful floral necklaces, tiny floral earrings or unique floral cocktail rings. Check out the Barse Arboretum bronze floral ring to add texture and style to your look. This ring features a blooming floral and leaf pattern in genuine bronze. Without much flash or a big price tag, this ring certainly stands out. (Dillard's, $28)

Floral bag

Jazz up your look by adding a floral tote or handbag to any outfit. Whether you are wearing a breezy white cotton dress or a T-shirt and jeans, a floral bag can put the finishing touch on your look. Check out the Milly poppy print canvas tote bag with chain handles. This roomy carryall is big enough to be your go-to daily bag this summer. It's 15 1/2 inches wide and features three interior pockets. (Saks Fifth Avenue, $295)

Floral top

Partner a floral top with anything from white capris to faded denim jeans to a pencil skirt. For a look that is a little bit vintage and Boho-inspired, look for a floral top with loose, billowy sleeves. You'll adore this Buffalo David Bitton blouse. It features a button-down front and allover floral print. The relaxed silhouette is very flattering and the lace trim adds a flirty touch. (Macy's, $89)

Floral shoes

Dress up your feet in a pretty pair of floral sandals. Bring out your inner flower child when you wear these braided wedge heels. These Seychelles Rogers sandals feature a floral print upper accented with a fabric flower over the toe. These adorable shoes will look fabulous with your long skirts, cropped jeans and just about anything else in your closet. (DSW, $75)
