Floral prints for guys are having a major moment this month—but not on the runway. Or even in a designer capsule collection. Nope. They’re turning up at the NBA playoffs.

Those who tuned into ESPN’s and TNT’s recent post-game press conferences have spotted Dwyane Wade rocking a floral jacket by Versace, LeBron James stepping out in a floral crewneck sweater by Staple, and Kevin Durant showing off a floral button-down.

When it comes to a trend, it’s probably safe to say that if it’s made it to NBA locker rooms, it’s cool. So for those of us on the sidelines, it’s about time to get in the floral game—even for your 9-to-5. These prints are subtle enough that the buttoned-up higher-ups won’t even blink.

Not quite ready for workday wildflowers? Ease into the look with laid-back weekend-wear options. Click through the gallery to see ten of our floral favorites.
