HOW TO WEAR FLORALS

The latest designer to take a swing at the Target marketing ballgame is LIberty of London. Frankly, they hit the ball out of the park – not only designing clothes for women, men and children, but producing some home goods as well (even bicycles!).  Spring florals invade each and every product.  Even if you haven’t purchased any Liberty of London, you can still find inspiration in the flowery frocks and printed shorts.

Here, we’ve provided outfit suggestions for each of these types of garments, featuring the turquoise isis maxi dress, and an array of printed bloomers. Take your first step into spring with these affordable ensembles, inspired by recent 2010 spring and fall runway collections.
