Floral Hype

One of the looks for Spring 2013 that instantaneously inspired me during New York Fashion Week was the one above by J. Crew.  The mixture of shiny floral pants with a relatively casual striped shirt and jean jacket made me want to run into my closet and replicate it.  Well, it also made me want to buy those stunning floral pants, but they’re not available just yet.  (Come Spring, though, don’t be surprised if you see me wearing them.)

Then I saw Jenna Lyons wearing a the pants with another striped shirt, and that sealed the deal for me.

Luckily, I didn’t have to reach too far back to find a suitable stand-in for those stunning pants.  For J. Crew had a similarly great pair last season (in similar colors, no less).  So, here’s my approximation of the look below:

P.S.  If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (which you should, of course, @alexsinger), you could have seen this already.

Pants: J. Crew (last seen here)- no longer available, but I love these and these / Shirt: Petit Bateau / Jean Jacket: Current Elliott (similar here)/ Shoes: Miu Miu (similar here) / Bag: Celine
