It has been another gorgeous week in Washington, DC and it has been bringing out the best of spring fashion. This week’s style advice sheds light on an extremely popular spring trend: floral. As we all saw, floral was a focus of many designers during fashion week for Spring 2012. It is clear that this CollegeFashionista did not miss the memo. I spotted her doing some shopping on the fashion-filled streets of Georgetown and knew I needed her for this week’s subject.
This look is provides a great style lesson: How to go bold without going overboard. While some Fashionista’s out there can mix prints on prints like it is their instinctive calling, many of us struggle with clashing. And others just prefer to take a more simple approach to style.
Either way, fear not. Because this week’s Fashionista shows us how to do it right. She’s sporting a blue floral dress by Juicy Couture, nude platform sandals light accessories and a solid camel trench. This look reeks of fun –chic. The dress is covered in that gorgeous blue floral print, but has this great elastic belt built into the garment. This is an amazing way to break up the print but more importantly to cinch in every woman’s best asset – the waist. You can also get this look by using a skinny waist belt. Besides the silhouette victory, a major kudos goes to her for allowing the dress to be the statement by pairing it with cool minimal accessories. She has topped her look with a nude sandal which is great for spring and is not visually fighting the dress, a cool ring, hot pink polish and again, the effortlessly chic essential: a solid trench.
She has really given us a great lesson in how to rock a fabulous print. So be sure to take notes from this Fashionista. And remember looking amazing this spring doesn’t always mean extra time in your closet. Fall in love with florals and let them speak for themselves.
Elevate this look with a small and simple straw bag with color details that screams summer.
