Get the floral fantasy look by channeling your inner boho girl and turning up the dial on your style. In this week's Coast to Coast Style Series, Alina, Johnnalynn and myself are embracing the flirty and sultry summer look with floral printed dresses and rompers from Free People. Like I mentioned in my last post, I have a current obsession with bohemian style. I love how carefree and easy going the look can be. It's truly all about fun details that give your outfit an overall earthy feel.
To achieve the playful boho style, start by choosing a floral or paisley printed dress, top, or romper. I opted for this open side floral printed romper with delicate ties around the neck. I found the drapey cut-outs on the bottom to be so visually interesting. Next, pile on some delicate accessories like this neutral wrap bracelet from Aaraa accessories. Lastly, finish off the look with something fringed. I choose this leather cross-body bag with simple fringe zippers on the sides.
This is totally a romantic look where high fashion meets low maintenance. It's perfect for a fancy date on a hot summer day. I actually wore this out with my boyfriend for cocktails on the beach. Since the fabric is sheer, you will need to wear a little something underneath. I recommend little black shorts (the spandex type) and a black bralette. I have also worn this romper as a cover-up (and received a boat load of compliments). I think rompers are unexpected at the beach because most girls wear sundresses or denim shorts. The bright floral bright colors are fun, and the loose silhouette makes it casual.
