FASHION FROM ABROAD: A Dose of Florals

Traveling has become the norm for me ever since my Europe trip. As a spoiled adventurer, staying in one country for over one week is not normal, anymore. To feed my traveling obsession, I impulsively booked a flight to Korea, my motherland.

As a Fashion lover, the first thing I’ve realized when I stepped outside the airport was the Korean fashion. It is inevitable that the way Asians dress is a bit different compared to European fashion, but it has not dissatisfied my eyes to see the well-dressed Fashionista/os to their own taste.  

While walking around Hongdae, the center of indie culture and urban street arts, I ran into this Fashionista who was sporting the perfect mixed floral explosion. The clean silhouette of the dress balances the high dose of the prints while keeping the overall look simple and classy. Instead of accessorizing herself with necklaces, bracelets and rings, this Fashionista kept her dress as her statement piece. Her choice of the clean black leather messenger bag as her only accessory, perfectly balances out enough of the black on the dress.

This summer, tropic thunder, punchy florals and vivid colors, are all in fashion. If you are still in search for the perfect printed article of clothing, try shopping at Zara for a printed playsuit, or shop at Topshop for the summery floral dress. For those who do not fantasize the floral print trend just yet, try donning another print, such as a swan dress from Topshop. As for accessories, keep it simple, like this Fashionista and try carrying a small messenger bag from Zara. Don’t be afraid of prints, and amp up your own summer trends and reinvent your wardrobe by channeling a dose of floral explosion.
