STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Florals and Platforms

Seeing my favorite trends all on one person is one of my favorite things to find on campus. It just so happens that I have found myself obsessing over floral shirts and platform sneakers all summer, so I thrilled to find this Fashionista.

Floral will always be a staple for spring and summer. It can be worn in tons of ways from head to toe. I love to see layering with a pop of floral to complete an outfit. For those who saw my STYLE GURU BIO, I am a big fan of pairing a button-down with more monotone pieces for a pop of color. It was great to see a Fashionista with a similar love for floral tops.

This Fashionista was also sporting my second favorite trend of the summer: platform sneakers. The transition out of winter creepers and into canvas platform sneakers was an easy one for any Fashionista who loves a bit of height. These sneakers are the perfect way to turn boring canvas shoes into a fashion statement with the perfect amount of edge while still being able to walk.

This Fashionista took her basic high-waisted navy shorts and a black tank and gave the look a pop of color with the floral blouse. To accessorize, she added a straw hat, a pair of rounded sunglasses and her platforms. This look is all about the small details that help give this Fashionista an adorable chic summer look.

If you want to grab this look, you can get this Fashionista’s exact shorts from American Apparel and platform sneakers from NASTY GAL To get a floral blouse similar to this Fashionista’s, Goodwill is a great source for button-downs. If thrifting is not your thing, try this Mina floral blouse from ASOS.

Sometimes creating the perfect look is all about one or two pieces. For this Fashionista it is her blouse and shoes. Details can make an outfit, so when dealing with basic colors, rock one or two amazing pieces to not overwhelm the outfit.
