It never fails: The vernal equinox rolls around and fashion everywhere explodes like a conservatory in bloom. (We can practically hear Miranda Priestly rolling her eyes.) But this season the typically dainty print is anything but prim, skewing more grunge rock than garden party. Here are six ways to wear the season’s coolest blossoms.

Bomber Jacket

Last fall’s breakout topper gets a seasonal update, with allover prints striking the perfect balance between sporty and flirty.

Embroidered Jeans

The vintage-inspired denim movement reaches its logical next step: These embellished numbers wouldn’t feel out of place at Woodstock. Pair them with a crisp button-down and heels for a foolproof look.

Get the look: Ashley Stewart ($55); One Teaspoon ($198); Hudson ($265)

Brocade Mules

We like to imagine these elegant slides are the house shoes a billionaire might wear. In other words, they’re somehow fancy and low-key at the same time.

Get the look: Steve Madden ($80); Jeffrey Campbell ($110); Free People ($128)

Graphic Appliqué

Forget everything you thought about florals being old-fashioned or childish. Bold, pieced blooms look extra modern (and grown-up) against a sheer top.

Get the look: INC International Concepts ($48); Nicole Miller ($259); Topshop Unique ($215)

Tapestry Booties

Let’s not forget that rain is a nonnegotiable part of spring. A colorful botanical motif gives the classic ankle boot new life (while still keeping your feet dry). 

Get the look: River Island ($90); Sam Edelman ($112); Rebecca Minkoff ($295)
