From the necklace, to the sweater, to the dress, to the shoes, this look is a complete floral explosion — but we like!

Proenza Schouler

Up close, this look is a beaded, embroidered masterpiece — pretty much the perfection you'd expect from the Proenza Schouler boys.

Prabal Gurung

If you didn't think you could wear a full suit printed with purple florals and still look cool, Prabal Gurung just proved you totally wrong.

Peter Som

...as did Peter Som, with this suit printed with vivid, graphic florals.

Oscar de la Renta

Daphne in daffodils at Oscar de la Renta... say that five times fast!

Matthew Williamson

Williamson is known for his bold graphics and vivid colors, and this look is the perfect combination of his strengths.

Mary Katrantzou

Color blocking meets graphic prints meets garden party.


Calling Kate Middleton — this crisp floral blouse and perfectly tailored trouser would be ideal for the Duchess of Cambridge's next international tour!

Diane von Furstenberg

This floral caftan might be the coziest-looking piece we've seen so far this season.

Christopher Kane

This cool piece looks like it could be a hand-cut collage or a series of flower stickers stuck on a simple slip-dress. We're betting it won't be long before a starlet like Alexa Chung or Elle Fanning is spotted in this one.


As if the sequined, floral pattern of this maxi-dress wasn't enough, the designer went and attached actual plants to the bottom of it.


This is the jumpsuit equivalent of a tropical vacation, don't you think?


For this look, Adam Lippes went oversized — in both the fit and the floral print.
