Trend: Florals

I know some people have aversions to florals but I really don’t mind them. This past year, I really got in touch with my kindergarten self and opted for explosive colors and really bright prints but I’m looking forward to more muted colors this season. I even unearthed an old floral Express dress from high school – it’s long, silk, and in four delicious shades of purple and mauve, all big pluses in my book. I especially like the look of flowing floral pieces with more structured jackets and accessories.

To Shop:

Found the Express jacket for sale on Ebay, mine is the same print but a pale green color

I also unearthed a faux python skin jacket that I had 9 years ago when I was in the 8th grade. It’s kind of atrocious and yet I can’t look away. I had forgotten all about that jacket until earlier this year when Gucci produced some MGMT inspired looks. As someone who went to college with these dudes, I have to say Gucci translated their style into something that is actually desirable and probably gave them way too much credit by declaring them muses. I’m not a hater, I just think the MGMT craze has gotten out of hand. Anyway, I’m hanging onto the jacket for a little while longer while I consider its creative potential.
