If you like this Asian-inspired/floral look, you'll love the rest of the editorial (which I highly recommend you check out - click the link above!). With oodles of warm colors, a hint of denim, and a sexy updo, it's hard to resist this pinup-esque look. Love it!

Yellow dress outfit inspired by Valerie Van Der Graaf for Vanidad Spain May 2011

(Products: Cardigan, Ring, Dress, Bracelet, Heels)

To get a sultry and sweet inspired style, I picked out this fantastic strapless dress in a canary yellow print. I then added a vibrant red cardigan that can be easily thrown over your shoulders on warmer days. For shoes, I picked out a pair of strappy black peep toe heels that are both cutesy and sexy at the same time. And lastly, to add a pop of flower power, I found a chic flower ring and a whimsical floral charm bracelet. Whether you're headed to a garden party or high tea with Grandma, don this outfit and you'll feel like a million bucks.

If you have a passion for prints, you'll love this avant-garde look. By mixing a bevy of colors, prints, polka dots, and stripes, this outfit achieves an awesome look that is sure to inspire. I absolutely love the strong eyebrows on model Saskia, as well as all the rich browns and vibrant plums that she is wearing!

Polka dot leotard and striped skirt outfit inspired by Saskia de Brauw for Dazed & Confused June 2011

To get an inspired look, I picked colors and prints like those found in the editorial, and looked for garments in similar tones. I first found a super cool polka dot bodysuit that you can easily layer with a skirt, like the purple/magenta striped one that I chose. For some extra eclectic edge, this combo can then be paired with this orange striped cardigan and some chunky magenta heels.

All you tomboys and preps will love this look! Highlighting menswear with a twist, this model rocks the "boyfriend" look perfectly. While it is a masculine look, the outfit still manages to highlight Adina's fantastic stems, which offer that perfect touch of femininity. J'adore her oxfords, her watch, and her suspenders - overall, this entire editorial is impressive!

Polka dot shorts outfit inspired by Adina Forizs for How to Spend It May 2011

(Products: Watch, Shorts, Shirt, Suspenders, Heels)

For my inspired look, I stayed pretty true to the editorial, choosing a pair of heeled oxfords, some suspenders, and a basic button up. However, I jazzed up the outfit by adding this fantastic pair of polka dot high-waisted shorts. Attach the suspenders to the shorts, and slip the fabulous big faced watch onto your arm, and you'll be done. Chic and fun, this outfit maintains the simplicity of menswear while throwing in a couple jazzy details.
