STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking

May 4th, 2016 at 2:10am

Miranda Priestly would roll her eyes and tap her Prada pumps incessantly at the idea of debuting florals for spring. However, I am not here to share with you a revolutionary spring trend, but a rad rendition on an old favorite. Those floral pieces have been waiting patiently in your closet all fall and winter, and you’d be lying if you said you weren’t dying to break them out. Now is as good a time as any to live out your floral fantasies, but if you’re ready for a new take on this classic spring trend, take notes on this Fashionista’s mod attire.

Most floral pieces commonly worn in the spring are mini skirts and A-line dresses with the occasional floral shorts. Dare to be different this season and take the floral trend to the max. The maxi dress makes a statement and is the perfect transition piece from winter to spring. It stands out from the average floral mini dress and makes this Fashionista look effortlessly chic. This breezy, backless piece is a natural fit for the warm weather, and the lace bralette adds to the flowing, romanticized tone set by the maxi dress. She dares to pair her florals with some edge by adding a leather jacket, allowing the look to stray even further from the floral norms of spring. For a beautiful spring day, this Fashionista finished off her outfit with some large sunnies.

There are many ways to take spring florals to the next level.  While this Fashionista wore strappy gladiator sandals, one might even choose to pair this floral maxi dress with combat boots or even white sneakers to shake things up.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Keep wearing those spring florals, but don’t be afraid to make them your own.”
