Thanks to Meryl Streep’s amazing Anna Wintour impression in The Devil Wears Prada, we’re well aware that floral prints aren’t exactly groundbreaking for warm weather fashion. The runways are abloom with flower-patterned styles every spring and summer, solidifying the fact that this perennial print isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
The question is: How do we update our floral print game each season? By mixing and matching, of course! Today we’re showing you how to chicly combine your favorite patterns and classic florals without looking like you got dressed in the dark.

Hot To Dot: Bold, spotted prints are equally as timeless as florals. Try this retro-inspired polka dot minidress paired with a floral print bomber jacket for a modernized pin-up look. The jacket’s satiny texture and edgy chinoiserie print add an urban-glam feel to the ensemble. Just finish the look with perforated chunky heels for the ideal date-night outfit!
Stripe A Match: We adore pairing stripes with florals for a preppy vibe with a hint of girly attitude. For this look, a nautical-striped, off-the-shoulder top tucks into an ultra feminine rose-printed flare skirt for a cute and quirky way to wear mixed prints this season. Combined with strappy heels, this outfit is perfect for a garden wedding, tea party, or shower!
Field Of Flowers: Floral-on-floral can be the trickiest trend to pull off. When mixing floral prints, try to stick with a simple color palette for your base (like the black and white palm frond design shown here). For your topper, opt for a slightly more spaced-out pattern with complementary hues and grounding solid accents – your outfit will be perfectly mismatched without appearing too busy.
