Spring Summer 08 trends: Floral, the designer picks
There are such a wide range of floral prints about if you go for this trend you'll be spoilt for choice. The key with making florals feel fresh is to mix and match and go for something that feels individual rather than a straightforward girly, matchy matchy outfit.
Team florals with florals, other prints or bright tights, anything that will add a bit of interest to the ensemble. Whatever you do steer clear of the faux-tan shiny tights and strappy sandals or you'll look like you're on your way to a wedding! See after the jump for more pics and full product details.
Balenciaga's dress combines a directional shape with a dainty pattern and while Williamson is usually someone I steer clear of this floral kaftan feels surprisingly fresh. Farhi's dress has just the right amount of retro but team with some chunky sandals to keep it up-to-date. Ghulam Sakine's frock also has a retro feel, but the casual shape stops it from looking too fussy.
