Micro-Trend: Floral

Oh look, I'm back again!! 

Micro-Trends make it so easy to stay abreast of the current seasonal trends without breaking the bank. I'm the first to admit that I always try to keep on top of trends I like by buying one or two small pieces to keep my look current but still "me".

This time around, I'm looking at floral prints. Floral never seems to go out of style, though the prints and densities of the patterns change wildly from minimalist to headache-inducing. 

Coming in to Spring and Summer we will inevitably see the return of the crop top, so with that in mind... 

Try pairing some high-waisted faux leather leggings or disco-pants with a floral crop top for an on trend outfit perfect for a night dancing. If you want to, throw a black cardigan over the top for a pout-together day time look when the weather warms up. Try adding chelsea boots to keep it casual, and wedges for night-time wear. 

You can find floral prints in any clothes store, but my top picks are Penneys, Topshop, New Look and No Polka.

Other possible micro-trend pieces include handbags, leggings and pieces of costume jewelry. 

What do you think of florals? Overdone or still a classic piece of feminine wear?
