Summer’s not over yet! Catch some rays and flounce around town with the season’s hottest florals. While the trend has been huge since spring, easy updates, from cut-off shorts to wedges, can make them more summer-appropriate. As with any other printed trend, let the piece stand on its own with a neutral or solid-colored pairing to keep the look young, girlie and fresh.
