The gloomy skies bring such cheer to our hearts. No, we're not being maudlin or channeling Moz. The rain means flowers are about to bloom, and who doesn't love that? Of course, florals have already sprouted on spring clothes. But the pretty rose, lavender, and daisy prints have been catching our eye from the opposite end of the store — the men's side — blossoming amid hipster plaids and skinny jeans. Sure, florals popped up on the spring runways, winding up on tuxedo jackets at Dolce & Gabbana, splashed across trousers at Michael Kors, and paired with paisley and stripes at Etro. But we were surprised that the traditionally femme prints have become so mainstream: Everyone from Paul Smith to Tommy Hilfiger is carrying man flowers. Click ahead to check out a smattering of studly floral looks in stores now. Stylish, or swishy?
