While most parts of the US and Europe are still battling with freezing temperature, the thought of Spring and Summer round the corner is uplifting.
If clearer sky and friendlier sun aren´t enough proof that soon you´ll be smelling the flowers, bold trends that are making waves on the stage, such as this bold botanical and vibrant floral prints trend, will surely suffice.
The then forbidden style – head to toe floral prints and clashing florals – are now a fab! From matching floral top and pants to chic floral monochrome, your options in wearing this trend is endless.
The first of the four emerging trends for Spring and Summer 2012 (stay tune for the next trend guides to come), this guide is about how to wear bold floral prints like a pro.
Glam Up a Floral Dress
Take a polished halter floral dress in colors that speak sophistication and wear over it a sequined jacket. From day to night, this trendy look will aid you all day long. Wear a pair of black pumps and your favorite sunglasses for an added wow factor.

Pull Together Clashing Floral Prints
Perhaps the most daring aspect about this trend is wearing two clashing floral prints. It´s very playful and at the same time very liberating. You´re no longer confined within the no-prints-with-prints rule of the past.
Tuck in your floral top to give definition to the prints. If you want a pulled together appeal, add a sleek black blazer and slip into sexy black pumps.

Mix Pastels and Florals
I have a heart for soft floral prints because they´re very feminine and not too loud. This FERRE – Printed sweetheart neckline dress from Ted Barker is of that kind, sprinkled huge florals against ivory shade.
In order to continue its softness, pair it with pastel pink pumps. Alternatively, if you want a bolder look, wear with it a pair of orange heels. The key is picking up a color from the print for your footwear.

Blend Colorblock with Florals
This style trick is about mixing two trends together – colorblocking and florals. In doing this, you´ll have to start with the florals which in this case, is the heel.
Take two colors from your floral print, e.g. violet and neon green, for each of your separates. Mix together for a very fun, blended result.
