STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Floral Fancies

Everyone loves a classic duo: peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, Bonnie and Clyde — really, the list could go on forever. Similarly, there are some situations that usually come with a sartorial counterpart. Music lovers jam out to alternative bands wearing flower crowns or denim cut-offs, the Kentucky Derby is not complete without a fabulous and over the top feathered hat and an interviewee usually gains a bit of confidence with a smartly cut blazer. This Fashionista demonstrated yet another wonderful pairing by choosing a floral skirt for a Sunday brunch ensemble.

Set against a white background, this floral skirt is fresh, youthful and ideal for a summer brunch. She paired the breezy skirt with a casual, cotton tank and sandals for a relaxed look while a long pearl necklace also added a fun touch of sophistication. A floral print easily updates a classic silhouette and refreshes those basic pieces like a tank top or denim skinnies. On those summer days when I’m not sure what to wear, I usually reach for an easy floral maxi for a casual afternoon or an abstractly flowered pencil skirt for work.

The bright and flowing design of a floral print is obviously eye-catching and the vibrant colors will serve as an instant pick-me-up. This Fashionista’s flirty skirt style is an effortless summer staple as the clear and bold print paired with a neutral yet stark white background will serve her well from brunch to picnics and barbecues. For a more daring take on the floral trend, try a digitally printed maxi skirt or a vivid citron tropical pencil skirt. Whatever summer event you have planned this week, a floral skirt will pair wonderfully.
