BEAUTY BAR: The Power of the Flower

April showers don’t always bring May flowers. Although most people affiliate flowers with springtime, they never truly go out of season. These delicate bunches of petals are adored all year round. Whether it’s winter, summer or fall, floral trends are appropriate for all seasons. With the recent occurrence of daylight savings, days are shorter and nights are longer. Not only does “fall back” alter our sleeping schedules, it affects our mood. Imagine it’s early evening and you’re walking around campus with the leaves crunching beneath your feet. Just a few weeks ago, it was sunny and bright, but now darkness quickly creeps in. Late autumn is a gloomy season; but like this Fashionista, you can defy the darkness through fashion, especially with floral prints and hair trends.

If the vibrant pattern in her dress and statement hair accessory didn’t make it obvious, this Fashionista epitomizes the term, “flower child.” She expresses her love for flowers through her clothing, a refreshing contrast to these gloomy days and somber moods. Paired with her floral dress are cognac ankle boots and over-the-knee socks—tactics to keep her warm and stylish. She adorns this bold outfit with subtle jewelry: silver rings and a whimsical necklace. But the highlight of this Fashionista’s look is her trendy hair piece. Flowers are cute, simple and can be used by everyone!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To attain this look, you’ll need a flower hair accessory. All it takes is a quick clip in your hair, and your outfit is complete.
