Whereas delicate, tiny blossoms are indicative of springtime dressing, the blooms seen at the recent collections of Richard Quinn, Erdem and Oscar de la Renta are the opposite of shrinking violets — punchy, large-scale and rich, they envelope the wearer in all their glory.

Closer to home, look to local designers Kate Sylvester, Caroline Sills — the designer of the rust-toned skirt above — and Twenty-Seven Names for uplifting and anything but insipid florals.
