The floral skirt trend, BEHOLD, and watch the season bloom. Whether wispy romantics gauzes, or structured A line cottons – find your perfect floral skirt and add a stripe for simple summer fun. A straw hat and wicker bag, and you are summertime ready.
It helped that summer sunlight was in abundance when we took these snaps. You can see the bold floral and stripes in their full saturated color.
Tulips were everywhere on this colorful day. Behind me, yes, and in my courtyard, and city streets. Flowers were even being spotted on mannequins, as below in an Upper East Side Pharmacy window!
Fulgent red tulips as long as my hands, lined the city streets in their wrought iron guarded patches. Crimson red, so crisp and pure.
Everything floral is in full bloom this season, but the floral skirt trend is my favorite. A floral skirt or shorts, for that matter, allows for a playful pattern mix- such as stripes- or even gingham checks. Some favorite floral skirts and here by Asos, and here in a gingham check and floral combination- pattern mixed and ready for wearing with a simple tee or cami.
More flowers you say? Ok, if you insist on the inspiration of this floral skirt trend!

Below, I am in the courtyard of my co-op. I am so grateful to be living in the heart of Manhattan, and still have flowers at my doorstep.

Lets mix these images up! The Floral skirt trend and the photos of the blossoms that inspire it.
A smilier pattern mix was last seen here .
I THINK WE ARE EXPERIENCING A FULL-ON FLORAL BOMBOGENESIS ! A NEW WORD, I JUST INVENTED!
What do you think of the floral skirt trend? Too girly, or just right when mixed and shaken?
LET ME KNOW, YOU KNOW HOW! WISHING YOU SUNSHINE AND A PROFUSION OF FLOWERS, ALL YOUR OWN!
Oh I just love your skirt!! I’m so into florals these days and have a couple floral dresses but I need to find a skirt. I love how you styled it!
I am so glad, yes, to florals, femininity, and anything inspired by nature. Thanks so much!
Yes this is the time to wear florals
Love yours dear!

Thanks so much Jacqui,
I so appreciate that. I do love this spring season,
Love the hat!! And I love flowers too. Makes the season even more exciting
Thanks Brian !
The hat was needed, but I too like the bold stripes. Thanks so much for the lovely comment and welcome to The Elle Diaries!
Wow! You’re bursting into Spring! Great look.
Thanks, indeed I am. It was a long LONG winter !
I love how you paired the skirt with this bold top, Elle. It really looks like they are one piece!!
Have a fantastic weekend!!
Now that you mention it, it does look like one piece! Funny to see it with fresh eyes!
I hope all is well friend.
I’m all for flower prints, the more the merrier. Not too girly at all, if you choose wisely. Bring on the full-on flower Bombogenesis, I’d say! I love the bold florals of your skirt which is offset by the striking striped top and the hat. Oh, and I love your purse too! xxx
Thanks Ann for your thoughtful comment. I did try to bring the sweet factor down a tad ! But flowers rule this season !!
Floral, if done right, as you have shown, is perfect for everyone!
Thanks so much Catherine !
I appreciate that. So wonderful to see you last week. Looking forward to posting about the gowns and your pendant.
This is such a beautiful floral skirt!!
Thanks Jessica, I truly appreciate that. I found it 3 years ago at a local shop.
Have a nice week-end!
Nothing compared to your gorgeous images!
The skirt is so pretty! I love the floral design.
Thanks so much Courtney,
Yes, safe to say we both love flowers !
Elle, I adore floral and stripes and the colors you have chosen are brilliantly emblematic of all things Spring! You are a stunning vision, my friend!
Thank you my friend. I appreciate your articulate and lovely comment. Have a wonderful weekend .
Thank you! Have a lovely weekend,
I love the print mixing with the florals and the stripes together! 🙂 It’s such a lovely combination, and one I should do more often. I have lots of stripes, not so many florals, haha! 🙂 It’s nice to see your inspiration, I agree floral skirts are beautiful. I don’t have any, but I am wearing my floral maxi dress as a skirt today! 🙂 Hope you had a lovely week and have a nice weekend ahead of you 🙂 We went out for dinner yesterday and I’m catching up with a blogger friend today so it should be fun!… Read more »
I am so glad you are going to have a good time with your blogger friend. I love the idea of a floral maxi as a skirt. You are very clever and I gifted stylist. The weekend, so far, is wonderful. Enjoy yours .

Stripes and florals, oh me oh my: great combination of prints! I’m all about the floral print trend. Whether the botanical print is emblazed on tops, skirts, dresses, I’m all about it!I recently bought a vintage floral dress that’s quite Charlotte (SATC) that I can’t wait to wear. Have a lovely week ahead ( :
Anything that Charlotte is wearing is great for me ! Can’t wait to see your post ,
You too, love !
No! Not too girly! Just right:) Love the stripes and florals, so fresh and lovely ok n you. Love the colors! I just bought some lovely yellow roses for a shoot and to have in the kitchen. Pretty!
Have a great day!
Yay, I am so glad you think so. Can’t wait to see your yellow roses on the blog!
What a beautiful fairytale floral skirt, it looks so magical on you and really love the details. Very feminine and elegant! Laura xo
Thanks so much Laura. So glad you like this fun combo !
I love the mix of florals and stripes.
Thanks, it was a fun combo to wear!
I can see you wearing something very similar!
What a great idea to mix the blue and white striped top (gorgeous) with the floral skirt. It is such a nice combination and so good for your body shape. And tulips! I bet they are from Holland. 😉
This was a fun mix to wear. You just might be right with the tulips….so beautiful!
