Style Advice of the Week

Floral has always been a staple print in a well-rounded Fashionista’s closet. As spring rolls around every year it's not a surprise to see the streets filled with flowers. A sundress or flowy skirt is the perfect piece to throw on and look instantly chic. However, most people don’t think about floral in the fall; well, Fashionistas, today is the day to start.

This Fashionista shows us how to wear fall floral the right way. I spotted her outside of Rockwell Hall which is the fashion building at Kent State University and is always brimming with fashionable students. When I first saw her outfit I was drawn to the cozy silhouette — the long dress, tights and sweater looked so cozy. Yet as I started to see the details, I fell in love with her overall vintage dress. This floral print is exactly the type that works perfectly in the fall. As the weather cools down you should leave behind the bright shades of summer and transition into something slightly darker and cooler with the helps of blues, deep reds and plums. 

Take a cue from this Fashionista’s color scheme. The more saturated blue and purple hues will work well with darker outerwear in the fall.  Wear a similar dress such as this one from Threadsence with a navy cardigan or a blazer to give it a modern spin. If you want more of a grungy look, add a maroon versity jacket and Chelsea boots. Another way to bring this fall floral into your wardrobe is with pants. Mixing print and texture with floral pants and a tweed shirt will be sure to make you stand out on campus in a completely fashionable way.

No matter which type of piece you choose, bringing fall florals into your wardrobe will add some necessary spice. Whether it's a dress or otherwise, make sure to stick with richly colored florals and get prepared for all of the compliments that are about to come your way.
