Want to try something a little groundbreaking for spring? Well, maybe florals won’t be your best bet. If you’re looking for something that has the same spring/summer feel with a little less of a cliché, I have a suggestion for you.
Now, before I continue on, I want to clarify that I am not denouncing florals! They are absolutely a spring and summer staple and will likely never go out of style. Even if they were truly deemed démodé, you would hardly notice. Florals will probably be omnipresent, whether you love them or not. Personally, I will always be a fan of any vintage floral pattern, so this is good news.
Anyway, now that we’ve established that this isn’t really about hating florals. Instead, I’m talking about trying something new and changing up the spring staples. Here it is, plaid and gingham dresses. The new florals. Bright and simplistic, these dresses have a light and airy look to them. The prints are reminiscent of summer picnics and look so carefree on this Fashionista. It’s also great that dresses like this one are available in several styles so you can find one that fits your personal aesthetic. I’ve seen several beautiful dresses that have more of a bohemian style. I love that the details of this look are subdued, but they are what defines this outfit.
You can definitely see a bit of vintage inspiration with the lightly worn denim jacket and the lace-up sandals. Lace-ups are a big trend for this time of year whether it be sandals, espadrilles, or flats. Finally, the necklace is a basic way to customize the look and add your own personal touch.
