Spring is here and colorful floral prints are all over the James Madison campus. Fashionistas are excited to bring out their warm weather clothes, however, spring temperatures vary daily and sometimes it’s a bit too chilly for just a lightweight dress and sandals. Not wanting to resort back to winter wardrobes, what’s a Fashionista to do? Lucky for me, I found a Fashionista with the perfect answer to this question.
I found this Fashionista on her way to class embracing the 60 degree spring weather and one of the biggest trends this season, floral print. Floral prints were huge during this season’s fashion weeks and seen on the runways of Paul & Joe, Ralph Lauren and Zac Posen. While too cold to solely wear her floral print dress, she placed a cropped knit sweater on top. The burnt orange sweater paired perfectly with her rustic colored floral print dress and created a boho look. Mustard colored pumps pulled together this look and complemented the rustic colors. I love how this Fashionista simply altered how she styled this springtime trend when cooler temperatures came rather than ditching it.
So where can you find a great boho floral dress and get on board with this season biggest trend? One of my favorites is a Lucca Couture available at Nordstrom. Floral prints are not just for dresses either. Dress aside, some of my favorite ways to add this trend to your spring wardrobe is through short or shoes. Ruche and Topshop have some great floral shorts options. ASOS and Forever 21 have colorful and fun floral print shoes that will add personality and flair to any look this spring.
Have fun this spring and add a little life and floral boho fun to your look. Remember spring is a time of year when the temperatures change daily. Here at James Madison, when you wake up in the morning you never know if it will be 40 degrees or 80. However, this does not mean ditching springtime trends, it simply means to use your creativity and fashion sense to restyle your look.
