This season, fashion is having a love affair with all things horticultural. As always florals and palm prints are ever popular for summer, but its our obsession with all things tutti frutti that have got us in a spin. If we go back to September 2011 in Milan, we were sat waiting patiently for the Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring Summer 2012 catwalk show to commence but it was the crates of fruit and veg at the back of the runway that gave us a hint towards what we were to expect. Strawberry shaped smock dresses, grape print tunics and apple pendants paraded down the catwalk and from that moment we all knew we would be making our five-a-day a key part of our summer looks.
Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring/Summer 2012
Fashion stylist Anna Dello Russo was spotted recently in Miu Miu's gorgeous cherry sandals, and Cheryl Cole was papped last week in Paris wearing their SS12 apple earrings too. Alexa Chung who has been known to kick start a trend and cause it to spiral into blogosphere mayhem, has also be out and about with her fave pineapple brooch. But unless you are heading off to a beach for the season, we do reccomend a few styling tips to keep you looking chic:
1.Keep tailioring crisp and simple to offset the playful aspect of fruit prints
2. Avoid zingy neons and instead opt for elegant brights - you dont want to look like an eighties popstar circa bananarama!
3. Kitsch perspex jewellery is the best way to work this trend accessories wise
