They say that history repeats itself and there is no doubt that this saying explains the trends occurring on in fashion today. Floral prints have been in and out for decades now, from the ‘90s grunge style to the latest hawaiian flowers. Fashionistas aren’t the only ones attracted to the blossoming trend but Fashionistos too! And personally, I think it is fantastic.
There is something about sunflowers – or any flower for that matter – that makes me absolutely giddy. With that being said, naturally I was beyond overjoyed to see this Fashionista sporting an American Apparel mini skirt topped with golden sunflowers. The colors are bright, energetic and a perfect fit for a summertime festival or garden tea party with the gals.
This Fashionista paired her mini with a simple plain white T-shirt, allowing the skirt to make a bold and bright statement. For an even more outgoing look, try pairing it up with a bright red crop top or keep things on the safer side with a black one. Either option will really pull out the accents on the sunflowers and show just the right amount of skin to beat the summer heat in the most modest, yet hottest way possible.
Lastly, how perfect is this Fashionista’s choice of shoes and accessories? My absolute favorite is her gypsy style finger to wrist bracelet. It’s an unexpected surprise, but works well with her overall look. Her black wedges fit adorably well with the sunflower style and bring out just enough contrast from her ensemble. If you want to go more toward the ’90s trend while still keeping the skirt as a part of the action, try adding a pair of black leather booties. These are still an appropriate style for summer all while adding a hint of edginess to a bright and playful outfit.
