S/S Trends Know-How: Floral, part 2

I always deliver what I promise (even it I do it a bit late, but this posts take forever to be ready), I said to you a few days ago there was going to be a second part of the flower trend and here it is. If you didn’t read my previous two floral posts or if you need to refresh them on your minds, here they are: Floral Essentials and Floral, part 1. For today, also three looks, each with one garment in floral: SHORTS, SKIRT, DRESS. So let the garden games begin!

LOOK 1: Shorts

Occasion: You can use it for a cute dinner date, for a lunch or afternoon with friends.

What you’ll need: A pair of highwaisted shorts are absolutely necessary nowadays. And if they come in floral print, even better. The advantage with them is that they enhance the waist, they flatter the figure and they hide our pouches when feeling bloated. I paired them with a bodycon black top with a mesh & polka dot detail. I personally love how both garments clash but seem to work perfectly. The combination of textures and prints is edgy but gives a great result. To add even more drama to the outfit, leopard platform t-straps. Sounds crazy but eyes don’t lie, it looks lovely!

For the accessories, since there is a lot going on alredy we can’t overload it. So for jewelry, just a simple leather bow ring. If it is sunny out there or you choose to use this look during the day, oversized sunglasses will blend in perfectly. The bag, Givenchy’s Nightingale in bright pink. If the look is for bar-hopping or clubbing, switch to a clutch. For beauty, a chignon to keep the Audrey Hepburn vibe going and a bright pink lipstick. Voila

LOOK 2: Skirt

Occasion: Coffee afternoon, stroll at the park.

What you’ll need: A flirty, flower printed mini skirt. I loved this one mainly beacuse of the pleats and the A-line shape. It helps you achieve that sexy cute look we are going for with this ensemble. To make it even more sweet, I chose a sleeveless and cropped denim blouse in a pale blue shade with white dots all over. It ties in the front just were the skirt starts, leaving a bit of flesh out. Just the right amount! The shoes, Jeffrey Campbell’s oxford heels. If I have to be honest, the outfit was assembled aroud them. I just knew I had to use them on my blog since the first time I spotted them.

For accessories, Chanel’s classic 2.55 in blush. You can never go wrong with Chanel. For jewelry, antique gold bracelet with a white stone for one hand, go vintage, go to your mom’s closet or even your grandma’s, you’ll surely find something similar. For the other, a leather wristband in pastel blue and a quarz ring in blush or pale pink. Give your paws a little color, don’t go with blue or blush, switch things up a bit. Go for a pastel green or yellow. This look is a lot like me, sugary outside, inside… that’s another story. Very Sweet’n’Raw.

LOOK 3: Dress

Occasion: Girls night out, date night, even lunch date.

What you’ll need: Bodycon is IN, flowers are IN. So when combined, now that’s the bomb. I found this navy striped dress with flowers all over in Top Shop. They have it in different colors, but I think navy has the power of enhancing every other color when paired together. To give it a more formal but playful air, I chose this flamingo pink blazer with structured shoulders and major tailoring to balance the tightness of the dress. For the shoes, I can think of one color when I hear navy, and that’s red! So, Kurt Geiger red platform sandals are a great choice for the outfit.

For the accessories, to keep on blossoming, a Marc by Marc Jacobs multi-chain necklace with lots of flowers in diferent hues. For your lovely hands, one of YSL’s most wanted, the enamel Lapis ring in navy and Essie’s Guilty Pleasures for the nails. For the bag, this navy oversized clutch is just the last piece to complete this puzzle!

I hope you like these last three looks, I promise, I’m moving on to our next trend. What would you like me to put together for you next?

Sweet kisses…
