With spring in full swing, floral patterns are popping up everywhere. As soon as it becomes sunny and 75 here in the south, cheery and bright patterns appear in every store. I love how these patterns really show off the vibrant flowers that bloom in the springtime, and add such a fun accent to any outfit.

Floral patterns come in every color imaginable, and can be paired with all sorts of different accessories in order to have an outfit that matches any occasion. It can be easy to transition a floral piece from a more casual look, to something more elegant or sophisticated. I love being able to take a fun print and making it work for somewhere like a day in the office or for running errands.

This week’s Fashionista shows us why floral patterns are just so popular this season. Though her dress definitely has a spring vibe to it, the darker colors still make it appropriate for when it gets chillier at night. She ties her outfit together with simple, silver accessories and casual sandals. Floral patterns are so popular this season because not only do they come in so many different colors, but they also come in a number of different styles. There are some fabulous floral printed skirts around in stores, as well as some more structured floral pieces.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “My favorite thing about putting together an outfit is making sure that I have some sort of fun print or color. Whether it’s a neon yellow or printed accent, I love having something that really sets my outfits apart!”
