Trend alert: The coolest girls’ floral clothes. And one for boys, too.

Girls' floral clothes - dress at Zara | Cool Mom Picks

One of my favorite trends for kids this spring, besides the whole dip-dye ombre look, is floral clothes. Normally I think of them as a little twee, but what I’m seeing is bold, fun without frills, and nothing like what Laura Ingalls wore back in the day. Here are a ton of great girls’ floral clothes and even a little something just for fashion-forward boys who are digging the look too.

Girls’ floral printed dress ($42.90 pictured above at Zara Kids)
How great is this pattern which starts and stops at the bottom of the dress? This is one I wish came in my own size.

Floral kids’ wellies ($54 at Joules)
You know those April showers are coming soon, and these rainboots will brighten things significantly. I find the chocolate background really fresh.

Girls' floral maxi dress at Tea Collection | Cool Mom Picks

Royal Flower Girls’ Maxi Dress ($39, Tea Collection)
I got my daughter a maxi dress from Tea last summer and was a little iffy on the length–but wow, she loved it. It has tons of room for movement, it’s perfect on cooler days with a denim jacket, and they wear so well for years. This print is definitely a great addition to the new collection.

Girls' floral clothes: Blue rose capri pants at Joules  | Cool Mom Picks
Blue rose girls’ capri pants ($50 at Joules)
Capris scream spring to me, and uh, I can’t wear something like this but my kids can. Pair it with a red tank in july, or pretty much any color at all.


Marimekko Floral Helli Raincoat for Babies | Cool Mom Picks

Marimekko Helli 1 Floral Raincoat
When I think graphic florals, I think Marimekko. I always like their classic floral print, which comes on clothes from shoes to onesies, but I think as a raincoat it can brighten up the whole street.

Floral Cotton Fleece Pullover at Ralph Lauren  | Cool Mom Picks
Girls’ Floral Cotton Fleece Pullover ($45 at Ralph Lauren)
This cropped pullover is great-looking, with a 3/4 sleeve. I’d put a tank under it (not big on belly shirts for little girls) and pair it with a denim skirt, shorts, seersucker pants like the ones here–pretty much anything.

Girls' floral clothes: Floral Rucksack at Joules | Cool Mom Picks
Kids’ Floral Rucksack ($52 at Joules)
I like the contrast of what would be a delicate floral print, but with the weight and boldness of the rose canvas. It’s not a school bag; probably best for overnights, day trips, or carrying gymnastics clothes and sports uniforms. No one has to know there’s something sweaty inside.

Appaman floral ruffle tee for girls | Cool Mom Picks

Appaman Ruffle Tee for Girls
Appaman has a cool, graphic take on florals with this fun tee in “robot blue.” There are two other colors but come on! Robots!

Floral Flip-Flops at J Crew  | Cool Mom Picks
Floral Flip-Flops in Kiwi Hydrangea ($16.50 at J Crew)
This graphic interpretation of flowers is adorable. Also, beach!

Lest you think girls are the only ones wearing florals right now, I’m seeing the print on boys around NYC these days. I really like this shirt from J Crew, which, as you can see, looks pretty cool on him.
