On Trend: Floral Denim (Istanbul Edition!)

Hi everybody! Berit here, writing from Istanbul, Turkey! I'll be spending the next four months here for school. As always, apologies for our frequent and lengthly hiatuses. Sometimes adventures happen and we forget about blogging.

On my current adventure, however, I've discovered something: Turkish people are stylish. As in, wear whatever the f%*! you want, rock it hard, and wear something completely different the next day.
Their ability to simultaneously hop on trends and flaunt complete relativism to them has me constantly confused and impressed.

In my two weeks here, I've noticed a trend that was just beginning to catch on as I left the US is in full tilt in Istanbul: Floral denim. In homage to an exciting season for denim (patterned denim is and will be huge this year), I put a few looks together to demonstrate the myriad of ways in which floral denim can be flaunted this summer:

On Trend: Floral Denim

Dorothy Perkins rose print dress / rag & bone boat neck shirt / Button shirt / Free People floral jacket / French Connection flared mini skirt / Superdry cable knit socks / rag & bone leather booties / Dune jeweled sandals / Carven slip on flat / Ralph Lauren Collection leather shoulder bag / Felix Rey straw clutch / Marc by Marc Jacobs yellow gold jewelry / Beaded necklace / Wooden jewelry / Miss Selfridge feather hat / Alexis Bittar vintage style sunglasses

 It's important to note that floral jeans can be a little tricky. Depending on their color, pattern, and scale, it might be difficult to find a pair that is flattering to your body type. My favorites are the jeans in muted or same-family tones (pictured above) and faint white printing on regular blue denim (such as in the dress on the right), in a medium-size flower print. They offer intrigue and an element of fashion without overpowering the most important part of the look: you.

What do y'all think? Is this trend one you'll be trying this summer?
