Style Advice of the Week

It is finally summer. The grass is green, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the Fashionistas are as fashionable as ever. Considering I’m from the Midwest, I am no stranger to the cold, so once summer rolls around you won’t find me in anything other than bright, happy hues. This summer I just can’t keep my hands off patterned shorts which is why this fun and flowery Fashionista caught my fancy.

Flower power Fashionistas, flower power! This chic chick decided to flaunt her flowery shorts with a white crop top from American Apparel, a J.Crew chambray shirt, a gold flower necklace, flowery sandals, Tiffany & Co. sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag — does it get more summery than that? I think not! Not to mention the fact that she was on her way to a summer barbecue; what a perfect ensemble!

Flowers, in all different shapes and sizes, are popping up everywhere in the fashion world this summer. While some Fashionistas like to rock their flowers on their clothes, others prefer to style them in their hair. Anything goes with this laid back, summer trend. Personally, I’m a big fan of this trend because it’s so feminine and cheerful. You’ve got the rest of the year to don your drab colors, nobody’s got time for that this summer — go bright or go home!

If you’re confident in your summer style, go bold like this Fashionista and rock some bright, flowered print on your shorts. However, if that look isn’t for you try incorporating some flowery accessories into your look like these fun studs. There is no limit to the power of your flower this summer so take full advantage. How will you rock this feminine fad this summer?
