And if you ask us, our spring clothes this year should be no exception, coronavirus be darned! We’ve rounded up a slew of pretty, floral pieces that will lift your spirits and get you in the mood for the warmer weather to come.

The History of Floral Pattern

While people have been incorporating real flowers into their clothing and headdresses since the times of ancient Greeks and Romans, the first fabrics to incorporate floral design came out of China in the form of the floral silks worn during the Tang dynasty, which took place from 618 to 907 AD.

They were later introduced to Italy by Ottoman textile manufacturers during the late Middle Ages. From there, they flourished (pun intended) in Venice and Florence in the 15th and 16th centuries, with clothing makers sewing large blooms onto ornate velvet fabrics.

The print’s reach grew even further during the height of the industrial revolution, when machine-printed chintz dresses became available en masse. Today, our favorite flower patten is a classic closet-staple that can worn all year long — but especially in spring.
