STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Florals All Summer Long

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Florals All Summer Long

When you think of a more “girly” trend, like florals, you would automatically think I’m talking about a spring trend, right? Although florals have gotten a reputation for being a spring trend, its unfair to banish your floral pieces from seeing the sun until next spring. Why not extend the use of those florals, and other airy, flirty pieces that are usually reserved for spring, and flaunt your pastels in late summer?

Cherri’s outfit is the perfect example of using these lighter, airier, typically “spring” pieces and bringing them from one season to the next. Her cropped, floral shirt has hints of pastels and a light material that make it a perfect fit for summer. Finding a floral top with a darker background is a great way to transition to a more “summer” feel, if you still can’t warm up to the idea of florals in August. These softer, floral pieces are great paired with high-waisted shorts. The shorts can be anything from a more feminine look, to something a bit more edgy, like these high-waisted suede shorts. If you end up choosing mostly softer, feminine pieces in your look, consider balancing out the look by adding a more structured-looking pair of shoes, like Birkenstocks.
