There are typical trends and color palettes for every season. Spring is known for the pastels, the cropped jeans and my personal favorite: florals. Your typical floral prints will consist of lighter colors on maybe a top or scarf. However, this Fashionista went a different route with her blossoming look wearing some dark high-waisted floral shorts.

I was so in love with this Fashionista’s shorts from the moment I saw them. Although they blended pretty well with her outfit, the shorts still made a statement. It’s refreshing to see something other than the usual pastel floral pattern this time of year. She decided to go casual for class with a denim chambray shirt, white crop top and high-top Converse. If you can’t already tell, white Converse are a huge staple here at ISU. They go perfectly with just about everything, and are especially a good match for high-waisted shorts!

Floral shorts similar to this Fashionista’s may be an even better purchase rather than something brighter (not that I don’t love a good pop of color) just because they are more versatile. They can make for a low-key statement in a casual class look, or be dressed up with some heels for a night out! Surprisingly enough, the combination options are a wide range for floral shorts.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Casual is okay! Embrace the clothes in your closet that aren’t the dressiest of the bunch. You can still make statements with your neutrals, denims and darks. Less is more!”
