JGB’s Goodies of the Day: Floral Print

Floral designs from Spring/Summer are trickling into Pre-Fall and Jesenia’s Goodie Bag addresses how to wear them in today’s fashion breakdown.

Alexander McQueen (Pre-Fall 2013) Floral Skull Rock Vest: Romance and melancholy cohabit in a perfect juxtaposition. The combination of rock and floral is both original and versatile.

A three-quarter sleeve denim blazer, dashing bright-red fitted dress pants, pointed black leather heels and mini patent quilted bag-on-chain turns this vest to a completely office-friendly piece. Accessorize elegantly with a Citra square metal watch and colored gem earrings & ring. Hair should look clean, but not overly done, with a side-swept style. Add a bit of drama with kohl eyeliner, but neutralize with a fresh face and beige lips.

For the weekend, unwind in a motorcycle jacket, skinny acid-wash jeans (or cut-off shorts) and leather boots with a mini purse. Bring on the heavy metal with stud earrings and a finger ring. Unkempt hair is totally edgy in a messy sumo bun or slightly bent style. Amplify your lashes with volume mascara, smooth in a hint of blush and trace your lips with a fiery red-orange lipstick.

Styling for a party made easy with a pair of leather pants, patent heel shoes and a metallic blazer. Fashion your finger with a cocktail ring. Fit your bare essentials in a mini patent clutch bag. Like a Robert Palmer video vixen, be simply irresistible with a polished ponytail, smoky eyes, cream blush and MAC Nicki 2 lipstick.

Peter Som (Spring 2013) Floral heels: Feminine with a touch of airy sensuality, but totally office-appropriate with a cobalt blue blouse, leather pencil skirt and bronze cuff bracelet. For bed-head chic, try some lived-in waves with a natural face and just a hint of magenta lipstick. Transition these heels seamlessly into the weekend with slightly bent hair, a white sleeveless dress, blue eyeliner, pink blush and a flesh-tone lip color. For an eventful look, try a white blazer, cobalt blue draped dress, while sporting a deep side part, shimmery eyeliner and a dewy face.
