@PlanetBrandee Summer Floral Redux
Listen, after a whirlwind of travel for my special series on the millennial outlook, I’ve finally landed back in NYC and It’s time we have a heart-to-heart here my fashion-forward friends. The DOG DAYS of 90+ summer nights are here so why are you STILL wearing black right now? Stop, collaborate and listen thrifters. Today, we want to throwback to an old but beloved subject: FLORAL. Specifically Floral Prints and those Coachella inspired headbands!
So pull up an icy beverage as I guide you through this once again summery trend!
I’ll keep it short and sweet here. Anyone can wear floral: Plus size, petite, hourglasses, pear shape. Listen: You CAN do this. In small doses, it can sweeten up a tough look and in big ones, it will bring in you the sultry siren call of Italian bombshells like Sofia Loren.
Here’s some eye candy and tips for owning the divine:
Step #1: Grab some scissors, a Brooklyn bodega bouquet and a hot glue gun to make your own Lana inspired headband here
Step #2: Curate that gait! When you’ve got your garland game on pair it feminine floral with tough, and since dressing like Blossom is a no-no, pair Biker boots and put it under that floral sundress for instant tomboy beauty. Don’t be afraid to wear it as a belt, or adorable We Can Do It! Inspired head scarf.
Don’t fear the floral! Grab an old school kimono from your local Goodwill’s sleepwear section, add some fringe, maybe a vintage silk scarf, some wide sunglasses and hit the hot street! Even a little peek can be fun PLUS, It’s not just for girls, did you see that dandy’s swagger sock game 5th Avenue, if not, you got another thing coming!
Step #3: So in closing, keep your floral game FRESH, don’t be afraid of juicy, fun prints and allow yourself to have a little fun pairing light pieces during the sweltering weather.
Till next time, cuddle up to your nearest AC unit and stay chill!
