STYLE ADVICE: Spring Into Spring Florals

We all know that spring lasts a grand duration of approximately 48 hours in Florida—it serves as a mere bridge, if you will, between what we call “winter” and summer. Although the temperature accelerates rapidly, there is no need to sleep on spring fashion. This Fashionista was stopped in her tracks, on her way from the local coffee shop, sporting the ever so classic floral print in a form-fitting skirt, stitched with neutral tones of green and brown hues, and trimmed with two cutouts along the bottom for added detail.

Bralettes, and specifically ones that can double as tops, have been especially trendy this past year. This Fashionista paired the floral skirt with a cream-colored halter bralette, with intricate embroidery and scalloping along the sides. This top is wildly versatile, and will most definitely serve as a spring staple—it can be dressed up or down, as well as layered with loose revealing blouses over it, or with button-down shirts and sweaters.

No ensemble is complete without at least one element of jewelry. This Fashionista took into consideration the busyness of her top and bottom pairing, and decided to keep it simple with a gold ring choker. The floral patterns on the fabrics should be the main focus of the eye, and the necklace does the ideal task of adding to the color scheme in order to tie the whole look together. A tan and suede crossbody purse is the perfect complement to the earthy colors emanating from the Fashionista’s outfit while also matching her similarly-colored T-strap sandals. From the skirt up, this boho, flirty, and girly look could go anywhere—off to a farmer’s market, to the mall, or even to a nice dinner date; a cardigan, sweater, or other form of outerwear could add mild sophistication. The footwear helps to enhance the casual nature of the outfit.
