If our moms had their ways with our closets, they'd be packed with Pollyanna-style bouquets, buttons, and bows. But we all had to grow up at some point, and thankfully, those beautiful floral styles aren't just for toddlers anymore.
Sure, we've seen flowers all over jeans
and frocks for spring, but the patterns have blossomed in a much less dainty way for autumn. Designers have definitely let us cross-pollinate past and present dressing habits — from edgy botanical boots to brazen green-thumb frocks, these bold florals will be a perennial favorite
. Just stroll through our fashion garden for an eyeful of bloom-inspired graphics, and take your pick from the potpourri.
