Petal Pushers: Spring Clothes
It's a Wrap
Floral prints get a bad rap for being dainty, but this wrap top ties in modern shapes and colors. Balance with neutral-tone capris and flats for a day at work or a walk in the park.
Top, United Colors of Benetton, $89. Shorts, Apostrophe, $36. Shoes, Etienne Aigner, $69. Necklace, Turq Jewelry, $150.
It's okay to mix prints — as long as your flowers don't overpower. If you're wearing big blossoms on top, go for more subtle patterns on accessories.
