Chicest ways to achieve a fresh look this Jacaranda season

The streets of Nairobi are looking lush, hey! Come October, Jacaranda trees start to blossom with a purple hue on the backdrop of blue skies. Fallen flowers turn sidewalks and roads into works of art as they knit a violet carpet for pedestrians strolling through the streets.

If the Jacaranda season is your jam, then you know it’s the perfect time to pull out your favorite styles and enjoy views of the beautiful purple haze. To make sure that you stay looking fresh, we have rounded up some of the chicest outfit ideas and fashion forward accessories that fit the bill.

So keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping motivation to push the envelope in your jacaranda season outfit game.

Floral Prints

It’s hard to go wrong with floral prints during spring time just as it’s hard to go wrong with sweaters in winter. But at this point, floral prints have worked their way from being just a trend into becoming a staple section of our closets. So whether it’s a wedding or a simple picnic date, we guarantee that you’ll see a couple of dresses on our list that will tickle your fancy and you’ll want to flaunt beyond the jacaranda season.

Shades of Purple

When it comes to incorporating colors into an outfit, purple is typically a bold color choice. For this Jacaranda season, why not try different shades of purple or mix and match with accessories of different colors to add some spice to a head-to-toe outfit.

Go white

Forget all the stringent rules and everything you’ve heard about how delicate white outfits are, instead consider combining this neutral color with bold accessories. Incase it’s not warm enough feel free to layer the dresses or jumpsuits with a cream or dark coat.
