FASHION FROM ABROAD: Flounce Baby Out The Door

Fashion From Abroad

Spring has sprung which means yes, your legs can come out of hiding, ladies. This season, flounce hems have reappeared in 2014 trends. Whether you prefer a statement flounce hem or a subtle flounce as this Fashionista did, the style adds a touch of frivolity to this sleek look.

I spotted this Fashionista wearing a printed Zara flounce dress on her way to meet some girlfriends for a late afternoon bite. This pattern speaks for itself, it is playful without being too overstated. In Europe, scarves are just as much an accessory necessity as a purse, and this Fashionista was sure to follow along. With her infinity scarf this dress is quickly turned into a daytime look while still exhibiting a bold statement. The accessory that is key are her auburn booties.

If you’re from the Midwest, you know that the moment the snow melts, the flip flop temptation is stronger than ever. In Spain, flip flops or sandals for that matter are not as customary as the United States—it’s all about the booties. When repping a pattern, it is vital to keep the rest of the outfit garments simple to avoid clashing, so the simple booties made for the perfect shoe choice. The next accessory piece we have is her black mini satchel. Again less is more when it comes to patterns—the small black purse complements the overall look.

The long sleeve look is wonderful for those nightly temperature changes. This Fashionista even had a jean jacket just in case. The jean jacket would have also added a fun touch, and this season denim is a closet staple.

To take this look from day to night, this Fashionista could easily transform this look for a night on the town. Simply take away the scarf and sport a pulled-back updo and you’re all ready for a night on the town—Euro style.
