STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Printed Florals

You have a fabulous top and want to pair it with some kind of patterned bottom. You want to show your personality. Although pretty prints appeal to you, you’re wondering if they will overwhelm you. So, where’s the middle ground? This Fashionista of the week found a stylish medium. Step away from traditional, plain colored pants and say hello to printed florals.

Floral prints have been a runway hit for the spring 2015 season and we can see why. They translate well into ready-to-wear, especially for pants and skirts. The printed floral pant is a happy, light and fresh look that is versatile and looks good on many women. It stands out and offers a fun, yet refined style. The best part of this popular trend is that it comes in multiple styles such as skinny jeans or looser jogger trousers. You can find floral printed pants at brands such as Ralph Lauren, Zara, GUESS and Express.

This Fashionista took a feminine and flirty approach for her outfit. She paired her floral pants with a white tee, a long necklace and high heels. The contrast of the simplicity of the tee and the busy pattern of the pant makes the look work. The heels give the outfit a refined and classic look. She kept her accessories minimal, which helps draw attention to the pant.
