Bright pops of color and floral prints are not only on trend this season, but are both the easiest way to incorporate summertime into your wardrobe. When gorgeous weather is here, your mood often reflects that, and bold colors represent a confident Fashionista. Banana Republic was one of many to send bright florals down the runway for spring 2011. Florals can easily be taken from runway to real way due to the affordable options available. Bright floral patterns were also a popular pant style for the season and look edgy with a different pattern on top or casual-chic with a plain T-shirt. This week’s Fashionista chose to pair her vibrant floral dress with a retro pair of oxford sandals. The bright floral option for summertime allows for playful styling and optimistic dressing.
Hint: There are many options to incorporate punchy florals into your summer wardrobe. If dresses are your preference, some choices are this maxi style or this girly drop waist frock. For a Fashionista who prefers shorts, these floral mini shorts are the perfect choice. The shorts look edgy with a motorcycle boot or casual with a flat sandal or converse sneaker. For bold floral print in a top, a chic button down is the way to go. For the remainder of the summer season be sure to step outside your floral comfort zone and choose a bold style for the print.
