And at Duro Olowu, the florals offered a cheery pop of color. Check out our gallery of some of our favorite floral looks and let us know what you think in the comments.

I often wonder aloud how the guy from Klaxons, a terrible band, managed to score babe Keira Knightley, but that is neither here nor there. Keira’s long-running tenure as, you know, Elizabeth Swan paved the way for her public entity, but in the last few years she’s really proved herself as one to be watched, even when pirates aren’t involved. Her willowy figure and easy grace make her the perfect mannequin for high fashion, but she’s also the epitome of cool when she’s off-duty. A cute floral minidress and simple sandals are a go-to for any casual summer occasion… even if you lack Keira’s long legs and English charm. (I do. Severely.) [Photo: FameFlynet] Keep reading »

We couldn’t help but fall a little bit for Peter Som’s exuberant, larger-than-life flower prints in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. But one thing we can’t abide — or afford — is Som’s exorbitant designer prices. So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without the majorly bummer price tag. The key to wearing any of these floral items? Make sure to keep everything else very, very basic. Check out our picks!
Three big trends for spring to fit every budget!
We’re stoked that espadrilles are making a big comeback this season because they’re the ultimate multi-purpose shoe. They’re the sort of dress-up/dress-down accessory that works particularly well with jeans and simple dresses. We’re loving the candy-colored varieties that are popping up all over stores, that add an extra zing to your spring.

Floral prints don’t have the greatest fashion reputation. Stuffy garden party outfits, your grandmother’s bedspread, every dress Elaine ever wore on Seinfeld — these are the stuff of fashion nightmares. This fall, flowery fabrics are cropping up all over the place. Even though spring is generally thought of as the flower power season, pair these looks with autumnal colors like rust, orange, and gold, and you’ll be in the roses. Keep reading »
