Trend Alert: Spring florals

By Andrea Petrou on January 27th, 2011

By Emily Borrett.

With our bank balances finally recovering after the shopping mania that is December, and the weather slowly but surely improving, it finally seems about time to look forward to the spring and think about what we’ll be wearing when the sun comes out. So today, ShinyStyle looks at one of Spring/Summers prettiest and most cheering trends: florals.

One of the best shows in the most recent fashion week season was undeniably Erdem’s gorgeous collection of floral-printed blouses, capri pants, skirts and dresses, often with different patterns mashed together in one outfit. The result? A jaw-droppingly refreshing take on the print which has had us counting down the days to Spring ever since.

These models (pictured below) look staggering in head-to-toe florals, but can us normal folk take on the trend? The answer, I think, is yes. The key to working this look is confidence, and making sure that your prints contrast nicely. For example, if you’re wearing a blouse with a large, dynamic flower print, opt for a skirt or trouser in a much smaller, delicate floral. If the whole thing reminds you a bit too much of the perils of double denim, and you haven’t got the stomach to attempt flower power head-to-toe, then stick to one piece in the outfit.

We’ve looked all over the internet and found some of our favourite floral pieces on the high street, and some of them an unbelievable bargain. Our favourite is the Liberty-esque floral trousers from Joy – check them out below.

Catch Catwalk Queen’s day four coverage of London Fashion Week

By Andrea Thatcher on September 18th, 2007

The writers and editors of Catwalk Queen are super busy high-tailing it from one fashion show to the next to bring you top coverage for London Fashion Week. Don’t miss their latest reports for day four. Much more outlandish and flashy than the designs from New York Fashion Week, you don’t want to miss these styles. Some of my favorites so far are Luella Bartley, Eley Kishimoto, Peter Jensen, Ashley Isham, Margaret Howell for her quintessential British looks, and a few newer names such as Louise Goldin and Christopher Kane.
