For the last couple of years, fashion fans’ gaze has been drawn downward as tops have increasingly taken a backseat to bold bottoms. First bright hues breathed new life into standard jeans; now floral prints have sprouted up in new territory. Flowers powered spring denim collections from hip brands like Current/Elliott, and celebs like Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba, and Minka Kelly have all been sporting pretty printed skinnies, from colorful tropical styles to surprisingly chic updates on Granny’s dusty wallpaper. The trend isn’t meant for shrinking violets, but when paired with a simple, solid top, florals should look great on your stems. Look for them at denim destinations like in-jean-ius (441 Hanover Street, Boston, 617.523.5326), where we’ve spotted fun, flirty looks from the likes of Citizens of Humanity.
