STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Unconventionality

Be original this spring. Floral dresses are obviously trendy, as you have probably gathered from the myriad of posts covering their popularity this season. This Fashionista accepts the tip and adds a bit of flair by throwing in an unexpected twist: a faux fur vest. They were cool this winter, and their even cooler this spring. To make one work, try pairing a flirty and flowy floral dress, such as this one, with a vest that’s not too heavy.

Hint: Make sure the colors complement each other. For a look that doesn’t look too wintery, you could try a vest with some embellishment or detail. This one, on sale at, is a great buy that could go with so many pieces in your closet. Also, lighter colors generally complement more of the colors that are popular this spring. Accessories are also always there to de-conventionalize your outfit. Take a look at Vogue’s Guide to Spring Accessories 2010. My favorite? The tribal accessories. Check out this tribal headband for a great outfit-completer.

Style On,
