Street Style: Floral and Flares

I dug up this fabulous photo from February’s NYFW because well, I forgot that I hadn’t posted it yet, and because it’s just so good. Erica of Honestly… WTF has such a great sense of style, and the proportions of this look are so cool.

I really never would have thought that a longer, swing coat would look right with an exaggerated flare (that borders on trouser-fit). However, with a fun, feminine print on the coat, and heels to keep you feeling long-and-lean, the look is comfortable and perfect for bouncing between fashion shows, or, in real life situations, brunching, shopping and the office.

Channel this look easily with a floral jacket, a spring-perfect trench coat or a cool, oversized blazer like this floral one by Cynthia Rowley, or even this bold pink jacket from Bird by Juicy Couture.

Do you like this take on proportion play? What do you pair with your flares and trouser jeans in the spring?

    I love the jeans – but weirdly I’m also slightly drawn to the gentleman behind’s orange jumper. Wow.x
