Flower Power
Florals for spring are a no-brainer, but this year's crop really is groundbreaking: modern, sharp, and not too girly. Here are some fresh-from-the-garden-inspired pieces, along with real-life bouquets created by New York City event and floral designer Matthew Robbins.

Clockwise from top left:

Modern Country
If your thighs look good in these, by all means, wear them. Try them with a boyfriend blazer in blue or white. (Pants, $198; 7ForAllMankind.com)

Graphic Floral
The A-line shape glides over hips. Pair it with a fitted yellow top and kitten heels for a vintage look. (Skirt, Tracy Reese, $288; Anthropologie.com)

Upscale Bohemian
Great for those who are afraid to wear color near their face. The black and white up top acts as a neutral. (Dress, $189; Talbots.com)

Sophisticated Garden Party
This would look fantastic over a sheath or with a white top and khakis. (Jacket, $110; RafaellaSportswear.com)

Bold and Beautiful
Wear it with a crisp white shirt, a black tee, or, if you're in a colorful mood, one of the brights in the flowers. (Skirt, $248; TrinaTurk.com)

Tropical with a Twist
This adds a whimsical touch to everything from jeans to pencil skirts. Just make sure all other pieces are a solid color. (Bomber jacket, $98; gap.com)
