Style Advice of the Week

From a young age, girls are taught that flowers represent beauty and love. They are pretty, smell nice and are even more special when received as a gift from a loved one. Many people put flowers on display in their homes as decoration to make their living space more warm and welcoming. Flowers are not only beautiful in ones home, but are even more fantastic stitched and printed on our clothing!

This trend could not have come at a more appropriate time. We are in the fabulous season of spring, and all of those floral patterns and pastels are slowly, but surely, making their debut in our wardrobes once more. Many patterns have had their claim to fame for quite some time, such as tie-dye, ombre and stripes, but floral is one that is timeless and elegant.

This season floral is looking bolder and brighter, just take a look at this Fashionista! She is wearing a floral maxi dress with a denim jacket beneath what seems to be a leather jacket. On top she is wearing a silver skull necklace and pair of leather grunge boots. Her outfit is definitely not what would first come to mind when you think of florals, but she does a great job twisting the look to parallel her own creative style.

When it comes to apparel, designers are creating looks tailored for all shapes and sizes. As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to start wearing dresses, shorts, tanks and even bikinis! These pieces of clothing we wear on a daily basis can easily transform the floral trend into our daily styles and wardrobes. While it may seem difficult to find something to match a pair of floral flared pants, seeing that they contain all different colors and designs, it’s important to have those go-to solid tops and tanks nearby to grab at a moment’s notice.

Florals can also be found in 3D when it comes to head accessories, shoes and bags. It’s getting hotter and hotter out so make sure to be prepared and looking cute on campus this spring. Most of all, make sure to rock your florals any chance you get and embrace your flower power!
