Rock A Summer Floral For $80 Or Under

With summer almost upon us, it’s time to put the florals back (or starting adding them) into your wardrobe. If you’re a bit of a rule breaker, you have probably already been rocking them since spring but since Miranda Priestly recently announced florals are a seasonal trend, we thought it would only be right to release an article right before summer.

There are some usual floral suspects, but we’ve found some more edgy ways to introduce this graphic trend back into your wardrobe, all for under $80. So skip the staples and try these new shapes: wide leg pants, off-the-shoulder, jumpsuits and more.

  1. Off The Shoulder Floral Dress – Glassons

A sexy off-the-shoulder floral dress can never be bad addition to your summer wardrobe. Dress this piece up with a pair of heels or wear it down with your favorite flip flops, this sexy black floral off-the-shoulder will be your most flexible summer piece.

Dark black off-the-shoulders provide a slimming look and are almost weightless, they’re perfect for balmy summer nights when you need that extra bit of air flow.

If you’re headed to the beach and don’t feel like rocking a bikini or one piece, just leave this off-the-shoulder over the top while you dip your toes in water or if you’re headed to dinner and don’t know what to wear, add a pair of heels to this off-the-shoulder. It really is that versatile!

No matter which way you rock a floral this summer, you will look incredible, feel comfortable and enjoy warm afternoon beach walks in style.

Take Sears, which often offers online coupon codes for extra savings when you checkout. Groupon can be a great place to find these free codes, and often you can get up to 50% in additional savings. Plus, keep clear of the shipping costs by selecting in-store pick up and you’ve just got yourself an ever deeper discount.

Men’s Fashion Advice – End of the summer sales

If you are the kind of guy who likes great quality clothing, but doesn’t want to pay full price, then now is the time of year to start looking for items to add to your wardrobe. The “end of the season sales” can be the best time to stock up on essentials for next season or just pick up that piece of clothing that you have had your eye on, but didn’t want to top dollar for.

For example, at bergdorfgoodman.com there is a classic denim blazer by Michael Kors that is located in the men’s sale section. It has a notched lapel, a welt chest pocket, two flap pockets, a two button closure, and comes in a versatile indigo cotton denim. This is a great casual item that was originally $495, but has been marked down to $222.
