Florals are a Spring staple, but for the upcoming season, flowers are covering everything from jackets to pants! Spring 2012 runways, including Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, Erdem, and Alexander Wang showed off head-to-toe prints, inspiring us to try out this trend ourselves. So in today's episode of Currently Trending, we headed to Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills to show you how to rock bold florals right now!

Solange Knowles is no shy girl when it comes to fashion, so it was totally fitting that she wore a thematically appropriate green floral suit by Flaminia Saccucci with nude Casadei pumps at the 2012 MoMA Party in the Garden benefit in NYC. While the floral-print trend has been blooming for seasons, Solange's bright green floral blazer and matching asymmetrical skirt makes us want to hone in on green floral pieces for Spring and Summer. If you're gutsy like Solange, then wear a green floral frock with a matching green floral blazer. To dabble more subtly, sport a green floral top with jeans or black leather shorts. Play around to find the perfect combination for you, and if you don't own any green floral pieces, then shop our favorites below to get started!
