Spring Summer Trend Guide Part 2: Darling Buds of May

In the second installment of my Summer Trend Guide I've turned the spotlight onto florals.

Florals have been pretty much in fashion for both Summer and Winter for a long while now, but each season they return with a bit of an update.

Head to Toe Print

This year bold prints were everywhere, worn head to toe and not always matching. You can get think look at ASOS where they have plenty of seperates for you to wear together or seperately, and are perfect for Summer workwear.

Boxier Shapes

Florals were also worn in much boxier shapes, with the pattern appearing just around the edges or in certain spots, for example in the New Look vest I have above taking inspiration from Sportsmax. Alternatively there is the Topshop playsuit, which bears more than a passing resemblance to outfit the Chloe models are wearing in the photo above, which have neutral whites paired with more of an oriential type of floral design, and limited to just key areas of the outfit, at the hem of trousers or the sleeve of a blouse.

Floral Maxis

Whilst light weight, colourful, floral, flowing dresses did appear, for example at Adam and available at Miss Selfridge, the general trend was for florals with a rougher edge, as I've already mentioned, with shorter length trousers, blouses and blazers with all over prints.

How will you be giving your florals an update for 2012?
