Pretty florals, pastel colours and floaty fabrics. Yes I am talking about Spring Summer 2010 and the flirty floral trend that is already creeping into stores.
Despite the February cold we are in the middle of a full floral bloom as new season stock floods the stores.
The SS10 feminine trend is in stark contrast to the black leather and power shoulders of AW09 and despite my usual tomboy style I am embracing it whole heartedly.
In good ol’ Topshop I’ve already spied a pretty floral skirt and faded floral print shorts and if dreams came true I would also be snapping up the above gorgeous Erdem floral dress, which is where the whole floral trend really started.
In keeping with the girly feel of the floral trend, nude colours and soft fabrics are also a big SS10 hit. This Topshop layered pink chiffon top will look great with florals, as will this soft ribbed ASOS cardigan. And I love these suede and wood Ash wedges which will toughen up the girlyness.
