Street Style Inspiration: Flirty Eclectic

Gooood Morning! I hope you all had a great (Easter) weekend:) I wasn't feeling well but was lucky to have my mom in town. We're in the very beginning stages of planning my wedding, so watching Say Yes to the Dress and looking at wedding dresses online was some fun relaxation for us.

Can you believe it's already April?! Its time to get out your mini skirts and sassiest sandals. Flirty folk-ish inspired looks are what I'm crushing on at the moment, and my favorite interpretation comes from Viviana Volpicella.

Viviana Volpicella street style

My favorite street style interpretation comes from Viviana Volpicella, who has mastered the art of eclectic dressing like any fab Italian fashion editor. I love how she combined a pleated mini, embroidered blouse and sky high sandals but was able to maintain a harmonious look by staying in a red and pink color scheme. 


Other street style strutters have given their own go at the flirty eclectic trend based around a pleated statement skirt. If you're really daring go ahead and mix it all from a bright patterned skirt to sequins galore to a vest. A more refined way to channel a flirty eclectic vibe is by keeping colors simple and mixing a full patterned skirt, simple silk tank, and strappy stilettos. And have no fear, if pleats aren't your thing a printed circle skirt works as well.
