Notwithstanding Tommy Hilfiger’s wish that it goes away, the floral print remains to be one of the most enduring styles. Floral has been around since the time people learned to weave, yet it continues to hold its own to this day.

And for good reasons. For one,  it’s versatile. It’s admitted practically everywhere, from the workplace to the Met Gala. It’s stylish whatever the season. That’s why the fall collections of many top designers this year are abloom with floral details like it’s still springtime. Also, when your white-gray-black wardrobe has started to chafe, a floral article thrown into the mix can instantly turn things around. Whose mood never lifts at the sight of flowers?

Here, using items from the August 2017 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, we show you how you can wear floral in ways as varied as the blossoms in a flower field:

1. A camisole by Rosie Assoulin that’s simple enough to pair with an elaborate skirt, but fashionable enough to keep people from thinking you wore a lingerie to a dinner date by mistake.
