With the current print craze filling nearly every storefront (Cerato especially), we’re positive there’s no better choice for this month’s fashion muse! Dianna Agron has officially been dubbed the Print Princess of 2012. Her character on Glee, Quinn, could even take a few cues from Dianna’s quirky, fun and feminine style. So effortless and experimental, it seems to us she can do no wrong. We absolutely adore the idea of pairing an all-over print with a tied jean shirt. This look is relaxed, but chic, something we believe fashion should always be. Dianna is also the princess of mixing and matching, stripes and florals, bold prints and even bolder prints. We think it’s important to push the boundaries in the world of fashion, because honestly, who really wants to blend in when it’s so much more fun to standout? This is exactly why we chose Dianna as our current go-to for fashion musings. Her style is unique, fresh and full of surprise—a refined combination very few can say they’ve mastered.
We can’t help but notice how much these current in store pieces scream “Dianna Agron: Street Style.” From bold prints in A-Line dresses to quirky prints in sheer, blousy tops to even bolder prints in flowy fabrics, we think we’ve pretty much covered the must-haves of Dianna’s style.

We love flowers—getting them, growing them and of course, wearing them. Fun and feminine, florals always manage to find their way into spring and summer trends, but we always love when they’re designed with a bit of edge. Eskell’s silk, floral prints are exactly what we’re talking about. Rather than going the all-over, ultra feminine (could’ve been your grandmother’s wallpaper in a past life) route, Eskell specifically places their richly hued sprawls of flowers. The doily-esque delicacy of flowers has been kicked up a notch with sharp gestures and bold floral choices. In addition, we adore the choice of black, which acts as another layer of contrast.
Little creativity is often given to dressing up or down a dress (simply change a shoe here and add a stack of bangles there), but we’re going to show you some options that you perhaps haven’t thought of. Even though this dress is silk with a chiffon overlay, surprisingly enough, it can still be worn during the day. We like the idea of dressing this floral piece down with a breezy, asymmetric cardigan, canvas booties and round sunnies. We just love how much the oatmeal color softens the edginess of this floral creation.
The best part of a dress is how easily it can go from day to night. Eskell’s Hannah dress has “drinks with friends” written all over it (well, not literally). A night on the town always calls for femininity sprinkled with a bit of edge. And in lieu of this concept, we’ve paired this sweetly silky number with a structured black leather biker jacket. We chose this one specifically for its low-key hardware (you don’t actually want to look like you just jumped off your Harley). Try a suede peep toe pump (a classic feminine touch) and a chunky, vintage-inspired necklace to finish off your rocker-chic look.
This piece is of course perfect for the office, lightweight and formal, but unique (you should never resort to a tired pant suit when options like this Eskell dress exist). To keep this look from saying, “Hey guys, I’m going to the martini bar across the street after work,” try simple, delicate accessories and shoes. A great black flat (look for a distinct, structured loafer) and delicate statement necklace pull this look together without spilling into “nightlife” territory. The double-breasted trench coat in cream is just another layer of dimension, softening the black and further balancing the business-professional. We love an opportunity to make your work wardrobe feel fresh and creative.
