I’ve seen a lot of bold florals in spring 2013 lookbooks, magazines, and all over the web. Not little delicate florals, but big, bold, colorful florals. I personally love them because they’re still girly, but loaded with personality – spunky, dramatic, adventurous, artsy! Here are some fun floral styles from around the web.

I love the florals alone, and they definitely have enough character and interest to stand alone, but I also like the looks where they’re paired with other patterns – the geometric cardigan, the polka dots. I do think pattern mixing with such bold prints needs to be done cautiously, though.
Do you like bold florals or do you think you’ll stick with the more delicate ones?
