My Style || NYFW Inspo Florals: How to Style a Gypsy Skirt

Happy new month in arrears everyone. It’s been a minute or two since I blogged for reasons that shall remain nameless for now. I am however very sorry for taking so much time off and I am excited to be back😁.

The NYFW just concluded and one of the major trends was FLORALS – I am talking head to toe, free flowing florals .Florals are nice fun and flirty but if you go wrong with them, you get florals that screams old school curtains or dining clothes.

Does anyone remember the gypsy skirt craze of 05/06. Well I remember because my mum bought matching skirts for my sisters and I. We looked so cute in them, but I digress.

I fell in love with this piece when I saw it, there was something about the pattern that I just couldn’t let go of. Plus it was thrifted so it may have been the low price that was exciting me 😁.

I love the fact that it’s free flowing and makes you feel like you are wearing a cloud. Seriously guys, this skirt is so comfortable I could wear it everyday.

THE LOOK

This look is very muted and minimalist,  because I felt the true star should be my flowery skirt. I paired it with a plain black long sleeve shirt, a pair of flat brown sandals, a simple blue heart pendant and a china blue cross body bag.

Plus my mane, that I felt just fell into place that day…. thank God for small favours.

This look is super causal and very laid back. It’s something you can wear to the movies, nature walk, for a good mall crawl or the great pastime of window shopping.

You can substitute the flat sandals for a pair of white tennis shoes for a sportier look. Or try a great pair of heels for a less casual look. You can also switch out the long sleeves for a shorter sleeves shirt if you are one of those long sleeve hating people 😒.

What do you think of the floral trend? 

Is it here to stay? 

And are you team ‘gotta have it’ or ‘make it stop’
