'Zero Dark Thirty's' Jessica Chastain in florals

February 05, 2013|By Jenn Harris

Floral prints are making a big comeback this spring after having been in full bloom on the fall runways back in 2011 at Miu Miu, Givenchy and more. Featuring tropical Hawaiian breeds, orchids or classic daisies, some prints look as if they were plucked straight from the garden.

Floral prints and flower embellishments also made their way onto the red carpet. At the recent SAG Awards, Julianne Moore wore a white Chanel haute couture gown with black flowers, Nicole Kidman choose a Vivienne Westwood gown with black-and-navy blue floral embroidery and Ellie Kemper donned a sea-foam green Reem Acra dress also with floral embroidery.

Jessica  Chastain wore the floral trend well in an Erdem flower print and lace dress from the line's Resort 2013 collection for the 85th Academy Awards nominations luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday. It was the perfect combination of bold florals and soft lace.

Try the trend for spring in the DKNYC floral print faux wrap dress from for $104.25, French Connection Anya Lace Yoke dress for $158 from or the Sete di Jaipur short dress from for $29. 

Balance the bold prints with a pair of simple nude heels. Get the LC Lauren Conrad platform high heels from Kohl's for $41.99.

Happy shopping.
