It’s officially SPRING! Yeey! Time to bring out your floral dresses and enjoy the sun!  Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance of the season. A pronounced bohemian breeze has blown through the SS17 collections of labels such as Roberto Cavalli, Etro & Fendi.

Since 2013, the bohemian trend has been on the rise. It has cycled through fashion many times before, but the nouveau-bohemian styles seen on the runway indicate that the trend is more technically advanced than ever before. Fashion designers have dramatically increased the embellishment, craftsmanship and material quality of their output, making nouveau-bohemia one of the most exciting trends of this year.

The floral dress I’m wearing not only meets the Bohemian trend, but is actually a mix of different influences. The details along the front and bottom of this dress has a folky feeling to it. The sporty stripes on the sleeves gives the look it’s needed boost. I combined the look with edgy boots to create an — almost — effortless total. In my opinion, this effortless edgy vibe goes perfectly with the laid-back bohemian trend. For a more elegant look, you can pair your dress with some nice  heels. I’m SO looking forward to style my looks for this season. Happy Spring!
