As quoted by the famous Meryl Streep as the ultimate fashion hierarch Miranda Priestley in The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Okay, so maybe a pretty floral pattern doesn’t seem like the most revolutionary style concept. However, like polka-dots, hounds tooth or a pleasant gingham, there is a reason this classic pattern keeps making an annual appearance in the fashion world. When done correctly, a floral pattern in the spring or summer seasons can lay the perfect foundation for a lighthearted, easy ensemble. Take this week’s Fashionista, for example, in her flower power-inspired festival fashion statement.
The highlighted Fashionista does florals in just the right way for her summer concert moment. Her relaxed, boho-chic style approach transforms the traditional pattern concept of flowers to the ideal, youthful summertime look. She goes for comfort in an outdoor setting with cute, yet versatile, TOMS shoes slip ons in a neutral tone. On top, she rocks a Free People crochet tank with a bandeau. This style of loose knit sleeveless top is a must-have for the warm seasons in its adaptability to all sorts of looks and its effortless charm. However, in this ensemble the shorts take the attention front and center. In a purple, teal and peach print these flower-patterned shorts are anything but a boring use of floral. The shorts’ color combinations along with their cut-off shape make them the quintessential concert staple item.
Although this summer is coming to a close, take this week’s article to heart and hold onto your florals from season to season. The reappearing pattern choice is not going out of style anytime soon, particularly with fresh, innovative takes on it like a printed denim short hitting the scene.
