Fabulously Feminine Floral Print Clothing For Lads and Ladies Alike

Updated on April 19, 2010

Either will do...

Women love flowers. Men love flowers too, mostly because women love flowers and anything that women love can be used as a lever in securing their affection. Also chocolate, though writing hubs about wearing chocolate is often counterproductive and earns censorship from the great Internet gods of propriety.

Anyway. Flowers. Floral prints used to be super popular in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, not so much the 1980's, because we were all momentarily sidetracked by fine white powder, but in the 1990's we definitely loved floral prints and in the 2000's they're also very in. What I'm trying to tell you is that you can't go wrong with a floral print. Unless you try to wear it simultaneously with another floral print that isn't the same floral print as the first one.

Remember, flowers compete for attention, and you don't want a floral war taking place on your body when you're trying to look nice.

You don't have to wear floral dresses to look nice either. There are lots of floral blouses and shirts out there, some of them are made from silk, and if you wear a silk shirt nobody cares what it looks like because they're too busy pawing at it with glee and squealing about how nice it feels. At least, that's what they'd be doing in a perfect world. In this world they're mostly worrying about money and how fat they are. But they will still be sidetracked by a nice satiny flowery blouse, which, I think you'll agree means that the only logical conclusion to this train of thought is that you should definitely wear satiny floral prints not only for your own gratification but for the betterment of the world around you.

You make the world a better place when you wear prints that look like flowers. There, I said it. I said what everyone's been thinking but they were too afraid to say in case it made them look crazy, or even worse, out of touch with current fashions.

So then, wear floral prints whenever you get the chance. Don't steal them off your neighbor's washing line (because it is so hard to defend the charge that you stole someone else's clothes whilst you're wearing them), but do purchase them or scrummage around for them at garage sales and in the attics of people who will let you into them.

There are some brilliant vintage floral prints out there if you would like to look hipsterish and cool, and there are always modern options if you like to look as if you receive a regular paycheck. The choice, as always, is yours.

Vive les fleurs!
Allons les fleurs de la patrie!
Je suis un chat!

      My high school French is a bit rusty after 40+ years, but I can't keep my cat out of the flowers either :)

      Vive les fleurs!
