STYLE ADVICE: Florals for Spring?

STYLE ADVICE: Florals for Spring?

Everyone remembers the iconic moment in The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep sarcastically says, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” I personally thought her way of stating the obvious was comical, but then I started to think. Maybe Meryl was right…maybe going with the classic flower patterned piece of clothing in spring is too obvious. Or maybe she was wrong, and the obvious choice is actually the most fashionable.

This Fashionista decided to play on the floral trend with a sheer, flowered, off-the-shoulder shirt. She paired the shirt with some dark jeans and added some light brown booties to complement the springtime vibe. The addition of a few key accessories made this simple look even cuter, like a delicate gold choker and a pair of sunglasses. Her satchel makes it easy to be on the go, and the scalloped design mirrors the floral pattern on her shirt. This look would be great for going to class or for a day out in the city with friends, the possibilities are endless!

For a light look like this, a neutral makeup look is the way to go. Her use of a nude lip gloss and a simple eye give her a fresh face that is perfect for warm weather. It’s always important to tailor your makeup look to the outfit you are wearing in order to finish off the look in style.

Based on this Fashionista’s overall look, it is safe to say Meryl Streep might have been mistaken. Florals for springtime may be a classic trend, but that doesn’t make the outfit any less fashionable. In my opinion sometimes going with the obvious can make just as much of a statement as taking a big risk in fashion.
