Nothing signals the start of spring than a full floral print skirt. In honor of Kentucky Derby Day I’ve teamed up with Express to celebrate the joys of getting dressed for a spring garden party. When it comes to feminine flirty fashion, this spring season is all about the skirt. Whether it’s a pleated midi, a metallic maxi, or a high waist mini, all of which you can find at perfect prices from Express, the spring skirt is experiencing a modern girl comeback. So when it comes to styling a full floral mini (as seen above) you want to recognize that you’re showing a good amount of leg, so it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit monochromatic and clean. In order to let the skirt shine and to avoid having way too much going on, it’s important to check your whole look in a full length mirror to insure that the proportions look correct for your body type, height, and structure.
I love wearing navy at this time of year as it is particularly kind to every skin tone, and just feels like the ultimate transition color (not too summery a tone, and a welcomed break from winter black). The full mini is a great cut for spring and summer, and looks just as wonderful with ballerina flats as it does pumps and platforms. And talk about affordable editorial! Express has a terrific collection of prints, textures, and colors in this cute cut that are well made and wonderfully affordable. Shop my favorite full mini skirts from Express bellow and be dressed and ready to throw, or just attend, a great spring garden party this season!
