Flower Power

Flower Power

It is spring in Brazil and flowers left the gardens to stamp Fashionistas’ clothes, traditionally appearing in dresses and skirts, but also in pants and even blazers. This trend is not exclusive of South America, because in the runways of New York Fashion Week the flowers appeared in its classical form but also in abstract and graphic patterns, sometimes leaving the romantic side, to gain a rock style.

The Fashionista of the week studies Fashion Business at Anhembi Morumbi, she is 19 years old and she works as a model. She has a classic style, and believes that a white T-shirt is essential in the closet; she likes to follow fashion blogs and reads a lot of magazines as Elle, Vogue and Bazaar. Her look matches a floral shirt with white blazer, and to break the brightness she bet on a black jeans and ballerinas.

Flower prints are classic, they remind us of summer time and hot days, but if you are not sure of how to use them during winter or at night, you should try a tight flowered skirt with a hoodie and sneakers or a dress with a cardigan, over knee socks and ankle boots. Do you wanna rock? Try on flowered prints on a black fabric and abuse of heavy accessories as tacks and skulls. To go out at night bet on a flowered skinny jeans with a blouse of noble fabric, blazer and high heels or a high-waist skirt, transparent blouse with flower patterns, clutch and good accessories as bracelets and rings. Endless options and audacity will certainly make the difference. Be confident!

Flower Power

Once summer strikes, countless Fashionistas can be spotted wearing floral print attire, as it is a great reflection of the beautiful outdoors that the warm weather brings. This colorful and playful print simply oozes sun and fun. It is also a very feminine statement, whether you opt to wear an item of clothing with a floral pattern, accessorize with flower jewelry or attempt a broche like Carrie Bradshaw circa 2000.

I came across this Fashionista wearing a pair of silky floral shorts paired with a subdued pink pastel blouse, another trend for summer. I really liked how she executed both trends as the simplicity of her pastel top balances out the floral bottoms. However, if you’re feeling bold, floral print is one great option for pattern mixing since it looks great paired with leopard print or polka dots. While the floral trend never seems to really go out of style, it’s interesting to see how this design is interpreted seasons after season. There are so many variations of floral print garments and it is not hard to find an article of clothing in this pattern that suits your personal style. To unleash your girl side, try this retro floral print dress that is reminiscent of the 50’s. You can also go for a chic sophisticated look with this beautiful floral silk satin Zara blazer. Recently, floral print on denim has emerged as a popular trend and these Free People cut-off shorts would be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

Clearly floral is everywhere and it is not going away for fall! While flowers are normally associated with the warmer seasons, I have already seen this trend moving towards fall with a more muted design such as these 7 for all Mankind skinny jeans. So Fashionistas, since it seems like it's not going out of style anytime soon, it will never be too late for you to snatch up something floral print.

I spotted this gem of a Fashionista while stalking the road trip of Tavi and her crew from Rookie Mag. If you haven’t checked out Rookie Mag, you are seriously missing out. We all know Tavi from being one of the youngest and best fashion bloggers at Style Rookie. She teamed up with a few other girls to create Rookie Mag, an online magazine for teenage girls.

Anyways, back to the Fashionista! There were plenty of well-dressed females to be seen at the event, but this one stood out to me. She starts with a summer classic: a white dress. With the empire waist, high neck and tiny flowers, the dress gives off a youthful, perhaps even childish vibe. However, this Fashionista is careful with her accessories to keep it modern. Pairing some Mary Jane pumps with ruffle socks and a pair of pigtails would have us guessing her age. Instead, the Fashionista chooses a pair of tough boots complete with buckles and laces that stand harmoniously against the virginal white dress. She tops off her outfit with a delicate flower crown à la Lana Del Ray in the “Born To Die” video.

Jealous of her headband? You could always buy one from Free People, but if you’re feeling crafty I recommend hitting up the Dollar Tree and watching the video tutorial on Rookie Mag’s website. To get your own version of this Fashionista’s look, try this white dress from Topshop to portray the same innocent vibe. Add a pair of tough boots like these Sam Edelman ones and you’re ready to take on the day!

Flower Power

Floral prints and fun floppy hats are two of the newest trends this summer 2012 season. Floral rompers, sundresses and maxi dresses have been seen strutting the streets. Even floral printed skinny jeans were spotted lounging on the jean bar at Urban Outfitters. If you are afraid of busy prints, do not fret! Consecutively modeling solid colors can easily turn drab, so this season is the prime time to mix up your wardrobe. Some girls fearfully run from clothing racks with floral prints. Even though prints can be intimidating at times, the style trick is to find the right type of outfit to wear in a print. Whether, it is a sundress, shorts, cute tank top or even just a headband, everyone should be flaunting the sidewalks in flower power this summer!

This Fashionista is stylishly dressed for a late afternoon lunch in town with the girls. Her ensemble, a floral sundress by “Mine” and Brash brown leather sandals from Charlotte Russe, is fashionably completed with a chic floppy straw hat and leather belt from Lord & Taylor. Accessories always pull an outfit together and make this Fashionista shine. Her look is flirty, comfy, smart and sure to catch some attention.

If you absolutely cannot get enough of this Fashionista’s trendy outfit, a look similar to hers is not difficult to achieve. Floral printed sundresses and rompers can be found at Indie/retro online boutique including, ModCloth, in addition to J. Crew.  Floppy summer straw hats and leather belts are summer staples. A variety can be found in most accessory departments, including Nordstrom and Macy’s.

Summertime is in full swing and we are not just focusing on our flowers blooming outside anymore. This summer make sure to take note of floral prints on apparel as well. Whether it's a scarf, pair of floral cuff shorts or a sassy sundress, flowers are on everyone’s minds for those summer BBQs and days at the beach.

Flowers are a tricky design to wear because you want to be stylish without over doing it. Stay simple with a floral scarf or necklace for a pop of color or, if you're a little more daring, try a cute dress like I spotted this Fashionista in. To imitate her style, opt for this fresh cut chiffon dress with a large, but not overpowering floral print, and pair it with these teal suede wedges.

When wearing a dress that is this loud, stick to minimal accessories. Pair it with either a thin bow belt or a large leather buckle belt. To top off the whole look, try a pair of simple gold bangles. If you are not a fan of large prints, go for a statement necklace with lots of color. This Tory Burch wreath necklace is perfect to spice up simple dresses for summer parties or a night out with friends.

Whether your style is demure or daring, definitely keep some floral pieces in your closet for day and night festivities.

Flower Power

“Florals for summer? How original,” will always be my favorite The Devil Wears Prada quote. But lets face it, flower power has swept the nation by storm in recent years. It may seem impossible to avoid the sweet print as it slowly overtakes accessories, denim, shoes — you get the gist. It may seem a tad overwhelming at best (and exhausting at worst) to decide when to sport florals. And even if you have picked the perfect flower-print piece the big question becomes, how do I make this original? In a sea of florals this summer it may seem daunting to try to stand out, but fear not because this week’s Fashionista shows us just what to do.

This Fashionista wore a floral top with a twist; it's sleeveless with an adorable tie at the top, allowing the neckline to be as conservative or festive as you wish. Tops like this are popping up everywhere in a large variety of prints, colors and patterns. Making one of the many colors in her blouse pop, this Fashionista wears this summer’s most prevalent trend, bright coral-orange bottoms. Her shorts scream warm weather and make for an overall cheery outfit. It may seem daring to wear two trends, especially one that’s bold and one that has been overplayed, but that’s the beauty of an outfit like this! Warm colors like red and orange are perfect for summer and pairing a pop of color with floral is the best solution to this fashion dilemma. Now you can wear the print without being repetitive.

To recreate a look similar to this Fashionista's, try this multi-colored neutral, floral, tie top for a '70s vibe and pair it with these basic light brown shorts to tie the look together. To play with this look overall, experiment with the different lengths and textures for bottoms and look for different floral prints in size and colors, as well as different placement of the tie; I swear you wont regret it.

And what about accessories you ask? As essential as they are for any Fashionista, a vibrant outfit like this speaks for itself. As a result, not many accessories are necessary.  Casual brown leather wedges complete this look. They may seem neutral but they are the perfect finishing touch.

So there you go; there is no need to retire the floral trend just yet. All it needed was a little sprucing up to make it more original, maybe even Miranda Priestly worthy.

Flower Power

Although a multitude of summer trends have been embraced this season by college students, there is one trend that has indubitably blossomed among young women‚—  floral prints. Florals have been popular for a long time on the runway, and with designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang and Rodarte constantly reinventing floral prints, they have become less of a trend and more of a classic staple. This Fashionista styled her colorful floral dress to accentuate her own girly aesthetic, and in doing so, turned this classic runway trend into a look of her own.

As floral prints can be appear heavy when worn from head to toe, the first step in mastering the art of wearing florals is to successfully balance them with the remainder of your outfit. This CollegeFashionista did so perfectly by layering on a solid colored cardigan to diffuse the strength and color in her dress. Different textures can also be added to an outfit to help create balance, and this Fashionista’s straw bag added a hint of country romance to her flirty outfit.

When wearing florals, also keep in mind the way patterns can accentuate body shape. Choose a print that is flattering to your body. For example, large, bold floral prints can look overwhelming on a petite figure, while tiny prints tend to emphasize fuller figures. Also, don’t be afraid of pairing floral accessories with floral prints for an extra kick of flower power! This Fashionista added small gold flower studs to complete her look, and with florals as dainty and cute as these, everything’s coming up roses!

This spring, fashion is all about being daring and creative. No color or print is too bold and the more you can customize a piece to make it your own, the better. For the CollegeFashionista on a budget a great skill to have is the ability to refresh last season’s purchases into something completely new. This can be as easy as cutting an old shirt into a crop top or chopping the sleeves off that old denim jacket to make an awesome, grungy vest. If that’s not enough, dip some old tops or shorts in bleach and voila: ombré! The DIY possibilities are endless.

This Fashionista is on point with this spring’s coolest trends, while reinventing the old into new. She sports a pair of stylish bright floral, cropped pants held up with a woven rope belt. She pairs the pants with a simple gray V-neck tank and a customized polo denim vest. On her feet she wears a cute pair of cut-out black flats and accessorizes with an arm full of bangles and a cloth, beige turband. Her look is casual, comfortable and crafty.

If you’re inspired by this Fashionista’s ensemble, invest in some fun printed pants for your wardrobe. Then, look to some of your old purchases, reinvent them and pair them with your new trousers. Complete your look with some funky, eclectic accessories. This Fashionista still sports the turband, which you can create from tying a scarf or purchase from NASTY GAL or American Apparel.

A big trend that has sprouted this spring are flowers. Some insiration has come from the whole Mad Men look that popped up after Banana Republic did a second collection that featured florals like this dress. Let's also not forget Blumarine's spring 2012 Ready to Wear collection that featured not only amazing floral prints, but also wonderful neon hues. 

I spotted this Fashionista's flowers walking on campus. This Fashionista took a more feminine print and gave it an edgy twist. The black in the top gave a less girly look, in addition to making the bright flower colors pop even more. She paired a vintage-washed black pant with it similar to these from Madewell

Lastly, this Fashionista accesorized with some amazing chandelier earrings like these filigree ones from Cusp or these with a pop of color from Kendra Scott. Throw on your favorite pair of gold sandals, just like these by Steve Madden to tie in all the accessories adn you're ready to go.

April showers bring May flowers was not the case in Rhode Island. The usually stormy state was full of sunshine all month, especially on the day I spotted this Fashionista on campus. I was immediately drawn to her flowy, floral printed, tie up top. I love blouses this season, and this shirt is perfect for spring and summer. It is light weight and can look great with all black as this Fashionista paired it, or even with white cutoffs. Blouses like this are versatile and you can dress them up or down as you please. H&M has a great selection of blouses that won't break the bank but I personally love Patterson J. Kincaid.

I really adore the all black look, no matter the season. She looks chic and ready for class, work, or even a meeting. This Fashionista is wearing Paige denim black pants and class Tory Burch flats with gold embellishment. She accessorized with some stackable bracelets which are very trendy right now. I love throwing on a bunch of mix matched bracelets with any outfit to add a “pop” of color. The best thing about stacable bracelets is it's a great DIY activity and super easy!

There is something about dainty floral prints that never seems to get old. Whether it's spring or summer this foolproof fashion trend is always high on the glam quotient. This Fashionista dons a simple yet chic romper. This ideal summer staple is a must have in every girl's wardrobe. It's the perfect outfit for a day out in the scorching sun and looks classy and refined at all times. I love the use of print, color, balance and simplicity seen here. The look is soft and light but still heavy on style. The nude pumps and the sassy bag further glam it up.

This summer, before you ditch your jeans and long sleeve tops, brush up on these style tips on how to recreate the perfect summer look. Cotton is a popular summer fabric and ensures utmost ease and comfort. Stick to soft cottons and opt from  a plethora of rich colors ranging from classic whites to dazzling yellows and bright blues. Opt for pretty floral print dresses and tops for a dainty feminine look. 

When infusing a print in your outfit make sure the other elements are subtle and not too loud. You can also go for bold and bright floral prints to create a high- impact. Make sure you play with a range of soothing hues and tones to create the much needed summer appeal. Not everyone likes to experiment with prints, so you can also indulge in floral accessories like the bouquet clutch from Moschino or hair accessories like floral pins and hair bands from ALDO. You can shop for an eye-catching floral brooch and pin it on your plain tee or your peep toes. Rose infused ballerinas also look great with sundresses.  Complete your look with a pair of dark shades and an oversized cloth bag.

Florals And Bows

In Wisconsin, the day we can start to wear shorts and skirts without tights again is a glorious day. Spring is a great season for florals and lighter colors and a time for Fashionistas/os to shed their winter layers and pull out the pastels from the back of the closet. I can’t help but naturally enjoy floral fabric so much more when it's sunny and 75 degrees; not to mention, I feel as if it’s a classic spring and summer trend that when worn correctly, it can rarely go out of style.

This Fashionista demonstrates her love for floral print with a gray quarter sleeve scoop neck tucked into her patterned shorts. She also sports a gold headband with a bow, adding a perfect feminine accessory. Another modified version of this outfit can be found at Chictopia and is a varied version of the floral print and bows. 

Florals are a very feminine pattern to wear and are a great way to get in touch with your girly side. When wearing, make sure that you pair it with a solid color top like this Fashionista demonstrates. That way your outfit won’t look too busy and the focus can be kept on your beautiful flowered piece of clothing. Free People is a great brand to find floral patterns. Wearing a pattern like florals doesn’t mean that you can’t also add fun accessories. A bow is another great feminine detail that will probably never go out of style and can be worn as a hair accessory, shoe accessory and on your clothes; Charlotte Russe has a variety of headbands with bows on them that are similar to the one in the picture and are at an affordable price range. This Fashionista created a very put together look by tying a bow out of a belt on her floral shorts along with adding a bow in her hair. It made me wonder if a relaxed Blair Waldorf inspired this outfit. This spring, keep your eyes peeled for floral pants as well. Walking down the street this week I have seen a few outfits similar to this Fashionista's but with pants, and although they may seem risky, they are a growing trend to test out this spring.

Welcome spring weather and welcome spring patterns! Floral patterns are more popular than ever this season, and this Fashionista shows off this ever-lasting trend by sporting an adorable large floral patterned dress. The pattern is reminiscent of Céline's 2012 resort collection, which is one of my all time favorites. I love the bright and bold floral suit seen in Look 6, paired with a pair of bright white pointy pumps. The pattern screams old Florida and is unlike your basic, small floral pattern.

You can find floral patterns everywhere this season, from dresses, to blazers, to jeans, to shoes, etc. I love the Large Floral Print Skinny Jeans by J. Brand as well as the Mani Floral Roll Up Jeans by Citizens of Humanity, which have a little more color to them. These jeans would look great with a simple white T-shirt and a light colored flat. Floral button-downs are also great, like this Mina Rosebud Print Blouse by Equipment. This blouse is an example of a smaller, less bold pattern. You can even get floral socks, like these Short Trouser Socks in Granny Wall by Celeste Stein. These socks would look adorable when paried with these Chambray d'Orsay Flats by Jenni Kayne and a simple white sundress.

The great thing about a strong floral pattern is that you can keep the rest of your outfit simple. This Fashionista wears her floral dress with a basic pair of Converse and a bright pink bag. The fliers can hold their own and the print is a great way to look effortlessly chic.

Catching this Fashionista after class really started my day off right. The contrast between our first flurries of the year and her floral maxi skirt really gives hope for a beautiful spring.

As the infamous Meryl Streep says as Miranda Priestley in The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking.” And yet, over the years it seems to be a constant go-to trend. Just a few weeks ago I walked into Bloomingdales and saw endless floral denim by Citizens of Humanity, J Brand, Diane von Furstenberg and 7 For All Mankind. Not to mention that for spring 2012 J.Crew, Jason Wu, Peter Som and Prabal Gurung featured neon florals. The best way to get in the spring mindset during this transition phase is by wearing bright floral prints and a bright face.

To wear a maxi in the colder weather days, just as this Fashionista did, pair it with cozy layers like a cable knit sweater, a leather jacket and lace-up boots. Also, add some fun touches like her earmuffs from Urban Outfitters and vintage jewelry. But as the weather becomes warmers, be sure to sport some long silk dresses like this blue orchid gown from alice + olivia or a funky romper from Forever 21.

Roses are red, Violets are blue, these everyday prints don't compare to you.

Fabulous Florals

I am sure I am not the only one dreading sitting in class wishing I was at New York Fashion Week. Facebook has been blowing up with pictures of different shows, although I do not mind seeing Rachel Zoe's behind the scenes pictures! The runways have been filled with somewhat already seen trends, but it is obvious designers have tried their best to put a spin on them. Some have worked on combining the geometric trend with the color-blocking trend, while others have brought on an explosion of florals. My favorite floral piece from spring 2012 ready-to-wear is Peter Som's blue floral chiffon dress, and his whole collection for that matter. The flowy frock looks so elegant, but extremely comfy!

Since I have always loved flirty, girly florals, I do not mind this one bit. Designers have started to step away from hippy florals and move onto super chic florals. This Fashionista shows off her own version of girly florals with her J.Crew shirt. I am obsessed with the bold colors (especially the hot pink) and the unique placement of the florals. She layers a Forever 21 tank underneath, a Zara sweater over top and wears black Target pants with Justin cowboy boots. She keeps her shirt the center of attention with simple accessories, including a Betsey Johnson watch and Tiffany and Co. heart earrings.

With the drab weather amongst us, fellow Fashionistas and Fashionistos may be looking for new ideas to warm up their winter outfits. Whether it's with a pop of color, or a fresh pattern, we all need some inspiration to keep us from falling into a winter slum. With this said, though it may be cold and frigid, adding some floral matter will easily add some life to an ensemble. Though usually floral prints are incorporated into springtime attire, it can always be added into an outfit to warm up the ensemble.

This week's Fashionista uses flower power in a new way. Fresh from the Melrose Flea Market, our Fashionista is sporting a unique flower headband. At a closer look, I noticed little white flowers tied onto a stem-like headband. Though she still dresses winter appropriately, her headband is utilized as a fun accessory to warm up her winter get-up. Dressed in a black leather jacket, black skinny jeans, her classic Ray Bans and a winter white infinity scarf, her floral headband is the perfect accessory to complete her look. What is so great about this week's Fashionista is that any creative Fashionista can make their own personal floral headband. It is fun and different, and a floral headband adds a new element to one's winter wardrobe.

Though not authentic flowers, this particular headband from Free People is a great accessory to spruce up an ensemble. It’s a great color and can easily be incorporated into a get-up that may be lacking the color and flair you so desire. I love the idea of a bright color against an all black pallete. If you’re feeling bold and daring, try this headband. It will stand out and be a statement piece, while still adding some spunk to your ensemble.

So though it may be the winter season, don’t be afraid to add in different elements to add some originality to your outfit. This week’s Fashionista did an exceptional job of adding a unique aspect to her wintertime look. Look outside the box, and find some inspiration that will help you lighten up your winter wardrobe!

Does this Fashionista look familiar? It's my fellow Style Guru Katie Redmond, whom came to visit me this past weekend. Her outfit was so cute that I couldn't resist snapping a picture to share with you all.

Katie's floral knit shift dress was perfect for the crisp fall weather. She paired it with lace-up ankle booties and an adorable cattle print saddle bag for some light print mixing, and finished the look with a multitude of friendship bracelets.

Creating a look similar to Katie's is pretty simple. First, you'll need your floral dress. Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge and J. Crew all have great long sleeved options. If you're looking to mix prints like Katie, I would suggest MICHAEL Michael Kors' leopard saddle bag, as leopard print goes great with florals. As for booties, you can get Katie's exact pair from Old Navy in stores or online for a mere $24. Finally, you'll need some friendship bracelets. My biggest advice for those looking for this trendy accessory is to not spend more than $15. There are tons of brands out there right now selling the summer camp staple for well into the triple digits, which is just absurd to me. ASOS has a pack of friendship bracelets for $10, and if you don't like those, then just make your own. They'll be that much more special, that way.

So try out these pieces this week for a look that's eclectic, fun and perfect for fall!

The ‘70s not only brought some of the most memorable music into our lives, but fashion trends that will continue to retire and reappear in our wardrobes over the course of our lifetime.  Hippie-chic items that are currently resurfacing include platform shoes, bell-bottomed jeans, winter shorts, wrap dresses and chiffon blouses. 

A chiffon blouse is a timeless piece of clothing that has come in and out of style through the years.  Now, more than ever, is the time to incorporate one into your wardrobe.  This little Fashionista pairs a floral Ella Moss blouse with these adorable, dark-washed, J Brand flares.  Her straight blonde hair along with her tan, Dolce Vita clogs scream the 1970s. 

Denim flares are a must for your fall wardrobe.  Now, it is totally OK to dress like your mom did back in the ‘70s. 

Clogs are also a huge trend right now.  Whether you’re grabbing dinner with your girlfriends or hitting the town, clogs are a fun way to spunk up your everyday heel collection.

Fall is great for fashion because of the many options available to mix and match with.  These ‘70s separates are groovy pieces that you should definitely throw into your wardrobe this season.

The summer is coming to an end the school year is about to begin. What better way to start the year out right but with a cute summer dress. This Fashionista looks adorable in this floral get up. It's a fool-proof way to look good, and still be comfortable. Dresses are always a go to outfit choice in the summer because they're quick and easy to throw on, as well as excellent for the summer heat. Since classes will be starting soon and you'll want to make that great first impression, all you Fashionistas out there should definitely consider picking up a floral dress if you don't already own one.
They give of a girly vibe, yet you can still keep them edgy, like wearing a satchel like this Fashionista, or switching up you shoe choice, instead of sandals maybe try some combat boots to really make a statement. Play up the accessories as well, long and short necklaces, or some bangles would spruce up any dress.

This look is easy for anyone to accomplish. You could find a floral dress almost anywhere, and there is definitely one out there to fit your taste as well. A lot of surf lines offer a wide variety of summer dresses perfect for the start of school, like this one from Roxy. It’s the perfect definition of a flower child look. This dress would even work with boots, and some type of edgy jacket. For a dressier floral look, this dress from Free People is a no brainer. Not only could you wear this for the beginning of summer, but into fall as well.

Take this floral advice all you Fashionistas out there and run free with it! See where your imagination takes you, and mix and match floral patterns like you never have before. You’re guaranteed to look fabulous.

In 1967, Scott McKenzie famously sang “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair” in a song written by John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas. Not only did this song become an instant hit with the flower generation, it was supposedly responsible for the migration of thousands of them to the aforementioned city in the late 1960s. The tune was even adapted as an “anthem for freedom” during Czechoslovakia’s Prague Spring uprising in 1968.

Although nowhere close to taking down Soviet Russia, it seems that, recently, designers have been having their own type of flower revolution. Floral print has been evident in the recent resort collections of everyone from Stella McCartney to Valentino to Jason Wu. The great thing about this trend as well is its versatility — floral fabrics can look good on almost anything and anyone. This week’s Fashionista is sure to play off the trend while making it her own as well, by adding touches like the kimono-style red belt and off-color sandals to ensure the outfit is neither too plain or overly girly.

If, like our Fashionista, you want a short fun floral dress for the hot days of August look no further than this cute (and affordable) option from Nasty Gal. As I stated before as well, one of the best parts of this trend is how versatile it is — if you are looking to sport floral in a more non-traditional way, this maxi dress from Urban Outfitters or a romper from Forever 21 might be the way to go. However, rocking a full-out flower print might be a little too much for some Fashionistas’ sense of style perhaps ease into the trend by sporting some fresh Marimekko flower kicks from Converse to get the look without all of the frills it implies. Or, you can just wear some flowers in your hair.

Things in Boston have finally cooled down and it’s about time too! That humidity just about killed this style guru! The streets of Boston have pretty dead, I suppose everyone was glued to their AC but luckily this week you can put your clothes on without fear of sweating them off! So put on something eye-catching and take the streets Fashionistas/os!

I found this week’s Fashionista walking back from the library and boy did she catch my attention! Not only did I love her red sweater, but her floral high-waisted shorts are killer. The floral trend is one of my absolutely favorites, so my advice for this week, rock some of that flower power!

Incorporating a floral piece into your wardrobe is the perfect way to be both trendy and chic. If you love this Fashionista’s floral shorts you will love these blue pansy print shorts. If you prefer a floral top, try this black floral print cross pack cami with a pair or black shorts or this peony silk top with a pair of high-waisted jeans or shorts. Feeling adventurous? Try this floral bodice bodysuit to really take a risk! The floral look is a classic one, just like this floral woven dress. It will deliver a sophisticated feel that incorporates the floral trend in a more subtle and classy way. Every Fashionista can use a little flower power so add a few pieces to your summer wardrobe!

The sun has finally got his fedora on and the summer Fashionistas are coming out to play!

While bold colour blocking is dominating the fashion horizon this season, floral themes and patterns have continued in bloom since last season's collections, blossoming into a key summer trend heralded by the revival of 1970s hippie chick chic. Whether making a sophisticated statement in palazzo pants or accessorising with a ditsy headband, we're all feeling groovy in florals!

Today's Fashionista is rocking this '70s-inspired look with these stunning floral trousers from Zara. In a departure from the structured lines of the chino, another of this season's essential wardrobe staples, today's Fashionista has found a casual compromise between the palazzo and harem trousers with this eye – catching slouch number. Maintaining classic summer style in linen, she stays bang on trend by opting for a ditsy floral pattern in muted colours to give a current edge to her look.

Although these statement trousers remain the seed of her floral creation, this Fashionista flaunts flower power flawlessly by teaming with simple, layered vests in muted pastels. They provide the perfect complement to the slouch style of the trousers, ensuring all eyes will be glued to this homage to the hippie era, while also providing structure to the entire outfit. While the heart of '70s hippie style lies in free flowing lines, the contrasting structured element of the outfit gives a sleek finish to the ensemble, and sets off these sensational slacks to perfection!  

While this Fashionista has opted to perfect casual chic and continue to channel the floral theme with a brace of girly ballet pumps, this look could easily be transformed into a groovy nighttime get-up by teaming with a pair of signature '70s platforms, adding instant sophistication. High street hero, Topshop, has once again risen to the challenge, sporting a colourful range of platforms in various heels and styles to walk us through this key trend. 

Hint: Tribal jewellery is the perfect partner to any '70s – inspired look this season, adding a funky edge to florals, and Nine West are leading by example with their Vintage America Collection. Layer on some chunky bangles, feathers and stone — embellished pieces to add instant, earthy glamour to this look and transform yourself from casual hippie chick to stylish Saturday night diva!

We usually associate floral prints with spring and summer. It has a fresh and feminine vibe. Thus, seeing these prints in the middle of fall are a breath of fresh air from all of the neutral colors such as black and grey. So let our Fashionista guide us on how to wear floral prints this fall.

Feminine prints and colours make up most of her style today. Her floral leggings, which she got from H&M, stood out from the rest of her outfit. She paired it with a pink dress shirt to balance the bold prints of her leggings. She finished off with her usual long, black fall boots. To complement the femininity and coolness of her outfit, she let her hair down and its soft waves added a laidback vibe. Overall, it’s a relaxed and easy style perfect for the lazy days. Not too feminine and not too hipster-ish, just the perfect blend for school in the fall.

As shown, floral leggings or jeans are very eye-catchy and thus it needs to be balanced with a plain or low-key top. One easy rule I would recommend is to wear a top that has the same colour of the prints. Today's Fashionista wore a pink top and her leggings has pink colour. Take a look at these leggings: it may have loud prints but it is simple and easy to pull off by wearing a white or peach top. If you belong to the courageous ones, take a look at these floral pants: very feminine and easily worn with tops that have ruffles or lace as long as they have one color. So there you go Fashionistas, let your inner flower power out and strut those floral leggings or pants!

Nothing says "it's springtime" like floral prints and pastel colors. This classic combination is girly, fun, refreshing and flirty. Better than that though, the look is accessible and virtually any Fashionista can pull it off. Floral prints come in multitudes of colors and a variety of styles, which makes it easy to find just what you're looking for.

This spring, try taking your favorite bright colored trench coat and pair it with a floral printed dress or romper. This Fashionista pulls off this classic look with a bit of a twist. Instead of pairing her bright jacket and sea green scarf with brightly colored florals, she opts for a darker color underneath. The floral printed dress screams spring, but the hues of purple and teal prevents this Fashionista from resembling an Easter egg. Fresh, flowery and put together, this Fashionista is ready for the beautiful weather.

Hint: If you Fashionistas out there are looking to find darker floral prints, try Forever21 or Lord & Taylor if you're looking to splurge.

Style On,

Laura
