Style Advice of the Week

I love spotting a good floral statement piece during these wintery days. During warmer days florals are all in bloom, but during winter it’s harder to spot floral pieces. With the floral print trend being iconic for as long as I can remember, it’s still one of the most loved trends. The floral trend lives on with skirts, pegged pants and bags. If you can put a flower on it, it exists.

If you’re sick of plain winter grays and blacks, consider spicing it up with floral prints. Our Fashionista substituted soft pastel floral prints for darker colors that still showcase her love for florals. It is evident that our Fashionista’s personal style speaks through her outfit. A floral maxi skirt was the perfect piece to add to her laidback grunge-hippie look.

She personalized her floral style with a rose print maxi skirt, a style suitable for winter. A great style trick during winter is to bundle up underneath your maxi skirt with tights. Try adding up to two tights on a very cold day. No one will be able to tell that you’re heavily bundled underneath, and you’ll get the luxury of wearing your stylish skirt during winter.

Work with your colors and don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. I love that our Fashionista sticks to red and black with her outfit, pairing her floral skirt with a black blazer, red crossbody bag and red shoes. Red and black are romantic colors and keep in tune with her rose patterned skirt.

Personalize your florals Fashionistas and make them all you. There is this perception that florals can only be girly, but I believe our Fashionista has proven this wrong. You can stick to a pastel full skirt to show your inner girly girl, or you can punk it up buying darker shades of florals. Either way it’s undeniable that florals reveal your very own personal style.

So I guess florals aren’t going anywhere, because of its versatility they are sure to make another round during the upcoming seasonal trends.
