Today’s look features a floral dress by Carolina Herrera. And while florals rarely are a go-to look for me, this is an ensemble I’d wear (mostly because I put it together!) since the accessories help to tone down the flowers quite a bit.
The look is not a complicated one, and is ideal for a brunch or high tea sitting (and yes, people do still go to tea! Some things never go out of style). Also, it would be lovely for a day trip of sorts — a casual elegance reminiscent of Grace Kelly, whose style I have long admired.
And among other things, the purpose of this blog is to provide inspiration for style, regardless of your budget. While I feature designer fashion here, any look that I have put together on Daily Runway Style can be reproduced (more or less) with more budget-friendly items.
So why do I use designer clothes here? Well, the quality of the fabric and craftmanship is primarily what catches my eye, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I advise have a wardrobe chock-full of designer clothes (trust me — I don’t). Instead, I pay careful attention to the details (finish, texture, construction) and ask myself if the item I am considering is a piece of quality. Put another way, do I feel good when wearing it? If so, then I say “go for it,” even if that piece only sets you back $25 or so.
