Some trends are just timeless. Winged eyeliner, the little black dress, and of course, florals! Today we’re taking you through some of our favorite looks featuring florals that we’ve seen over the years, and how to update the trend to be wearable now.
If there were one quintessential ’90s it-girl who rocked florals like no other, it would have to be Drew Barrymore. This gorgeous wild child managed to rock florals at every occasion, from the red carpet to her laid back street style. We couldn’t think of any other it-girl beauty that was a better fit to kick off our homage to ’90s florals!
Liv Tyler rocked this lace-up floral bustier during a ’90s photo shoot. We love this updated version, with a trendy peplum hem and zipper closure at the front. This piece is surprisingly easy to dress up or down, by pairing it with dark wash jeans for day, and a black pencil skirt and heels for night!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus/Long Sleeved Florals
Long before she was playing the Vice President on HBO’s Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus played Elane Benes, the hilarious spitfire on cultural phenomenon Seinfeld. Although her style changed throughout the seasons, her iconic look was definitely the floral Laura Ashley dresses she wore with lace-up flats and white socks. We still love the long-sleeved floral look, but we much prefer this super flattering floral romper from Lush. With long sleeves and a flattering v-neck, this piece is super easy to take from day to night.
Alyson Hannigan/Sheer Kimono
Watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer was a huge part of our ’90s upbringing, and each awards season we loved seeing what the stars wore on the red carpet. This floral and fur-trimmed kimono stuck in our memories, and for good reason! We love this updated version shown on the right, with fringe instead of fur, but still the same sheer detail.
Alicia Silverstone/Eye-Catching Floral Print
Alicia Silverstone is another fabulous celeb that the ’90s wouldn’t have been the same without! We love this ultra ’90s trend she’s rocking on the left, pattern mixing and adding an eye-catching floral print with a tee shirt underneath. Nowadays we probably wouldn’t put the tee under a dress, but the eye-catching florals trend is one that isn’t going anywhere. We love this gorgeous dress from Lucy Love!
Alicia Silverstone/Floral Sundress
We couldn’t resist adding in an extra dash of Miss Silverstone. Her ’90s floral frock on the left is surprisingly current looking, although we’d probably ditch the clogs. To try this look with an updated feel, try the super comfy Autumn Bliss Dress from Lush!
Drew Barrymore/Floral Blouse
It seemed fitting to bookend this post with the lovely Miss Barrymore again. The floral button-up blouse is another timeless style, but for a more updated and fitted piece, try this super flattering one from Sis Sis!
