Who doesn’t love a floral print in the summer? Whether it’s a delicate pattern or a much bigger, bolder print, flowers are going to be all over our shirts, dresses and even trousers over the next few months.

4. Cropped Trousers

Three-quarter-length trousers are very versatile and flattering and available in all sorts of colours and fabrics, making it a very easy trend to get involved with.

5. Kaftans

Perfect for warm weather, few things say ‘holiday’ quite like a kaftan. Effortlessly cool and classy, the loose sleeves are easy to slip into whether you wear yours as a cover-up beside the pool or to keep your cool on a shopping trip. You’ll wear it again and again.

6. Sandals

One of our favourite things about the warmer weather is the chance to wear sandals! Open toes with a beautiful pedicure will always be popular. Whether you choose a simple flip-flop, an elegant heel or timeless espadrilles, dress them up or down and wear them all spring and summer long.
