Flower Power

Lately, I have been asked several times from people that I would consider pretty chic dressers how to wear the floral fashion trend that has so colorfully taken over local boutiques and major department stores alike. I myself am not a big fan of the flower prints for they remind me of my grandmother's old upholstered sofa from years back, but I completely understand the dilemma many may have with trying not to appear too whimsical while being decked out in floral duds. Being the true fashionista that I am, I will not dare shy away from the power of flowers and have slowly (very slowly) warmed up to the idea of adding simple floral touches to my outfits here and there as a way to stay on trend. A great way to sport the fashion forward floral idea is to keep it simple. Floral embellished accessories such as shoes, handbags and jewelry will give your outfit a pop of color and keep you on trend with out overwhelming your sensibilities. For a bolder approach, try a floral sheath dress or a floral circle skirt paired with a solid colored blouse or summer tank top and cardigan. However, when flaunting your floral boldness, make sure your shoes and accessories are chic yet simple so that the focal point of your outfit is the bolder floral piece. You can also pair floral prints with edgier pieces such as weathered skinny jeans, black leather and platform sandals with metal embellishments to give off the nonchalant rocker vibe that will definitely turn heads and fast forward you to fashionista status. So, whether you decide to wear the floral trend, just remember to stay to true to your own personal style. Fashion trends will come and go, but personal style is yours forever.

Fashionably yours,
