Summer is finally here and that doesn't only mean perfect beach days, sunny skies, and reuniting with friends who went away for college, it also calls for new fashion trends. I’m sure most of you have noticed the arrival of brightly colored shirts, high-waisted jean shorts, cut off t-shirts, and most importantly clothing with floral prints. Lately, we have seen an abundance of clothing being carried in stores or being worn around campus that have these colorful and exciting floral prints on them, why we ask? Well this summer, clothing with floral prints is the “IT” trend of the season! Floral prints made its first appearance throughout retailers during the spring season and quickly became an instant hit, capturing the attention of fashionistas of all ages. That probably explains why this trend has crossed over to the Summer season and remains an extremely popular trend.
Since almost every retailer and our favorite designer brands carry this eye-catching print in t-shirts, jeans, skirts, shorts, pants, bags, shoes and different accessories, there is something out there for everyone and prices also range. Not only does this print come in different items, but they come in a wide range of colors, make it easy for us to wear them for any occasion. Floral prints come in neutral colors for a vintage and romantic feel (which seems to be an everlasting trend this year), dark colors for a classic look or to wear for a formal occasion, and bright colors to be worn anytime or for those of us who like to make bold statements.
My featured Fashionista of the week, decided to pair a floral print jean skirt with a sheer light pink silk top along with a coral side bag for a pop of color. Since she did not want to take away from the the skirt or her bag, she kept it simple with her shoes and wore nude peep-toe pumps, keeping the look fashionable yet classy. I have seen this Fashionista walking around campus several times, and I must admit this is not the first time I have seen her wearing something with the popular floral print on it. When I asked why she liked floral print so much she said " Flowers are the perfect print for the Summer. They are bright and exciting and can be paired with almost anything. I am a huge fan of patterns, I like wearing them and then picking on particular color that pattern has and making it stand out. Other than stripes, floral prints have to be one of my favorite patterns to wear for during the day for class or to run errands and at night time for a night out with the girls."
So what is my advice to you my lovely fashionistas? If you do not have something with this trendy print on it yet, run out to your favorite store and pick up something, whether its cute tote bag for the beach or a dress for a girls night out, follow this Summers hottest trend that will keep you feeling fun and flirty!
