Spring had fully sprung in Vancouver this week with hundreds of people flocking to the beaches and hitting the patios for cocktails in the sun. It’s with the arrival of summer that bohemian fashion aesthetic comes out to play (think flower crowns and ’90s throwback sunglasses). Celebrate the comeback of your summer wardrobe by soaking up the sun, making a killer playlist, hanging with some friends and chilling ocean side.
I’ve always loved the drastic jump between winter and spring fashion. One moment you’re walking the streets spotting girls in heavy parkas and combat boots, and the next you’re noticing them in denim cut-offs and crop tops. You’re thinking, “When did this happen?” Don’t worry, you didn’t show up late to the party. It’s just a crazy transition that occurs when that thing called the sun emerges. If you’re feeling like your summer wardrobe needs a few touch-ups, here’s what I recommend for you: daisies.
The hottest flower of the season is the daisy and this Fashionista is rocking a daisy print T-shirt from Winners. From skater dresses to denim shortalls, the daisy is a youthful and innocent print that can be incorporated into both feminine and edgy looks. It’s versatile and easy to wear, especially when the daisy is printed onto a black garment (like this Fashionista’s T-shirt). The daisy even proves to be high fashion with Moschino coming out with a cheap and chic resort 2014 line based off the idea “fresh as a daisy.” The collection is infused with garden motifs and playful picnic elements that go hand in hand with the fashionable grunge movement of the moment. Now I know what you’re thinking, “I wore daisy print when I was in kindergarten. Can I really pull it off now when I’m in college?” Well, here’s the glorious thing. The ’90s are back in full force and it’s bringing along this new cooler version of the daisy print for the ride.
Combining the floral top with a narrow pair of black Cheap Monday jeans and a Steve Madden Rodayo soft leather ankle boot, this Fashionista amplifies her feminine grunge look by layering her daisy print T-shirt with a longer length khaki green jacket vest from American Eagle Outfitters. The openness and length of the vest go perfectly with the laid back look. For another ’90s flair, this Fashionista adds on a thick gold chain from Plum and a two-tone stainless steel watch from Fossil for pops of gold accent. And to top off the outfit, she carries a black bag from Plum, which is spot on for a casual day on campus.
So this summer, Fashionistas, embrace that nostalgic feeling of the ’90s by flaunting some great daisy pieces. Embrace the youthful cuteness and rebellious edge that the print embodies. Whether you’re going to a music festival or just kicking it around the pool, daisy pieces are a summer must.
