Street Style – Non-Basic Floral

1st June

Florals for spring are simply a classic. Since they come around every year, some might consider them almost cliché. Not me! Flowers are my thing – I never get tired of having a vase of fragrant stems on my table.

All the same, it is kind of fun to go not-so-basic when it comes to something as timeless as florals. In shooting street style recently, I was very inspired by these three particularly non-basic floral pieces…

…including a Hawaiian-style floral cigarette pant with black piping along the sides.

Or another great example is this open-back maxi in a “winter floral”. Hey, why not? I love the way the wearer does not feel compelled to wear some special contraption in order to avoid her bra showing.

And how could I not be wowed by this gorgeous cropped spring/summer pants suit sported near Union Square on a Saturday – perhaps to visit the open market full of fresh flowers? Nothing boring about it!

    Love the pants! But the suit is a bit much for me. However, I might sing a different tune about it if I was tall and statuesque. 🙂

      I agree, Nancy; those pants are cool! I can see why some people might not be drawn to the suit – it is quite a statement. But after seeing so many boring work suits, I found this one refreshing and fun. 🙂
