Emma Pillsbury Style - Get The Look - Acafellas

It's not easy to wear florals without aging oneself, or looking matronly. Or cheap. Emma's floral sweater could go the wrong way, but the tangerine skirt and white blouse (with sweater clips on the collar!) work on her. Here's a floral sweater that could make for a really cute look, with the right skirt and accessories.

Emma's yellow and lavender look in this episode is all about pairing great contrasting colors with simple pieces, but the little floral top under her yellow cardi brings a little extra femininity to the outfit. This floral blouse would look great under an open cardi.

Emma's monochromatic look in shades of peach is one of my favorites. The bow skirt comes from J. Crew and is all but impossible to find, since it's not part of the current collection. As we move into fall, I'd like to see Emma in some rich colors - maybe an outfit like this one.

Emma has the most unique whimsical sweaters, but they are really difficult to find. Stores like Anthropologie carry several unusual sweaters, but even a simple polka-dotted cardi can make a statement when matched with an equally unusual skirt.

And, we all know Emma has the magic touch when it comes to selecting the perfect piece of jewelry. This gorgeous vintage pin could easily adorn one of Emma's lapels.
