In case you haven’t gotten the memo, it’s spring, and it’s all about florals. But don’t assume that wearing florals is limited to prim gals in party dresses at country clubs. DJs Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe prove that it’s a good look for the edgy urbanite as well. The pair, who perform together under the name The Dolls, epitomize the New York club kid scene vibe, performing on runways at New York Fashion Week and opening for established artists like Janet Jackson and Mika. But no matter where the pair is performing, whether its Chelsea Clinton’s wedding or Webster Hall, they rock their signature quirky bohemian style. Fearless, Moretti often mixes in the DJ booth with a flower wreath on her head. Jealous? Embrace your inner flower child with these fun, ethereal spring pieces.

Mix and Match
Both Mia and Caitlin seem to have a penchant for mixing florals. With this cami, you can achieve the same effect. The combination of different scales of the floral prints is both unexpected and slimming. And thanks to the asymmetrical hem, you’ll still feel modern and fun.

Free to Be
It’s 2013: wear a tutu if you want to. With some jewelry with a hard edge, like layered chain necklaces or enamel bracelets, you’ll look your age while indulging your childhood dream of being a princess. The neutral tones of this dress bring the bohemian vibe that The Dolls rock in their own red carpet appearances.

The best floral pieces are often the ones with the most dynamic color combinations. In that vein, this colorful collared dress mixes orange, green, and turquoise for a print you won’t soon forget. The oversized scale of the florals is best suited for a taller girl.

This classic sundress gets a modern twist from the abstract print and cool gray color. If you’re daring like Mia and Caitlin, top it off with a wreath of yellow or purple flowers! For the more demure, throw on some strappy sandals in a neutral brown or navy.
