Top 5: Prada + geometric print trousers

Miuccia Prada is responsible for so many wearable trends that have translated brilliantly onto the high street in recent years. And this coming season is no exception as shoppers clamour to get their hands on flattering cropped trousers with a distinctive geometric print.

A natural successor to the pyjama pant and the art deco trend, the head-to-toe print look appeared fairly daunting on the catwalk, but do not be deceived, we reckon it would be your new best friend for the office.

While daring fashionistas can rock the whole match-matchy printed shebang, consider a printed geometric trouser with a tailored white skirt and plain jacket to let the trousers do the talking! Luckily you’re spoilt for choice and by matching some work wear staples with a new pair of trousers, could get a distinctly on-trend new season look for less than £50.

Here are our Top 5 favourites. Happy shopping!

The real deal

Tile Print Skinny Trousers from Topshop £40

Styling idea from Warehouse. Trousers £45

Party trous! Jacquard loom trousers £39.99 from Zara

ASOS Premium cropped trousers £40

Trend mash-up: Prada + socks + sandals

They are two of the defining footwear trends this season but for £3.50 you can mix them up. We know you love Prada’s incredible hot rod shoes of this season with their Grease Lightening racy flame detail (so do the celebs) but they are v pricey.

HOTrod

You’ve probably also seen the big sock + sandal craze -note we mean heeled sandal and not on men!  Prada, Burberry Prorsum and Moschino all took the trend to the catwalks, which is now being embraced by brave trendsetters.

A punky edge at Vivienne Westwood

And now for the good news- you can rock hot rod flames…and socks (with sandals, not included!) thanks to Topshop…and all for £3.50. Do you dare mix and match?

Flaming marvelous – wear with high heeled sandals for maxi va-va-voom!

Cat’s eyes: Prada vs the high street

Hello sunshine (at last) we can now wear 50s summer dresses and all those pastels we’ve been hoarding – hurray! And what better thing to team it with than pointy shoes and super cute retro cat’s eyes sunglasses a la Prada. Enjoy x

Kylie Minogue steps out in those Prada sandals

They are one of the defining shoes of SS12 and sum up the fun and flirty feel of this season and we are clearly not the only ones that love the Prada Milano sandal. Check out Kylie Minogue’s shoes -we’re green with envy!

Katy Perry rocks the whole shebang!

Lana Del Rey covers French Glamour

Ooh la la, Lana Del Rey dares to bare in retro-style swimsuits and those obligatory Louis Vuitton and Prada SS12 looks. J’adore.

Ooh la la!

My new make-up inspiration. Super sultry!

is this the same shot (by Mario Testino) seen in British Vogue?

Retro raunch

Scarlett Johansson for Vogue: May cover

Who doesn’t love Scarlett Johansson’s retro style? Legendary photographer Mario Testino has captured Scarlett in sumptuous Art Deco surroundings for Vogue magazine at a time when we are all gaga for Gucci and The Great Gastby’s 1920s glamour. The only disappointment is the predictable sugary pastel cover…why?!

We will also take this opportunity to reminisce over a previous amazing Vogue Paris shoot. Ooh la la!

One of my favourite images in recent years I think!

What is more 1920s glam than a dangerous spotty kitty?!

Sexy in Prada

Why the sugary pastels after such a strong editorial? Are you a fan?

Such a sexy shoot from the past. Scarlett is a great hair chameleon

And again!

Prada for Olympic gold?

We’ve already seen Stella McCartney’s Olympics kit for Team GB but the competition is already hotting up as Prada is dressing the Italian team and here’s a sketch of the sailing outfit via Fashion Foie Gras.

Apparently the Prada brand will be all over the boats too, not to mention the rest of the Olympic kit, which will be pretty stylish if the sketch is anything to go by. We’re now waiting to see Ralph Lauren’s designs for Team USA…and to see if any other designers will enter the competition – Chanel for France anyone?

Victoria Beckham for Harper’s Bazaar

Another month another amazing cover. We love Victoria Beckham in silky Prada for Harper’s Bazaar. That is all!

VB love you!

MFW: Colour for winter *super post!*

We’ve mastered colour blocking and are now seduced by Spring’s pastel hues as well as Pantone’s ‘tangerine’ tango and sherbet lemon so some good news…bold and bright colours were a big feature of Milan Fashion Week.

Seeing as we’re drowning under a heap of Fashion Week news we won’t wax lyrical but let the colour do the talking because it’s punchy…ka-pow!

Perky purple at Blumarine

Big bird by Blumarine!

Little Red Riding Hood and sharp lines at Marni?

And some blue sky thinking

I kind of love these Moschino dresses in a princessy party dress way

Cara Delevingne and some excellent detail

A little military twist for Moschino

Lindsey Wixson for Moschino

I love this little red handbag!

Love the geometric prints at Prada

Punchy purple handbag at Prada

Tangerine again! In love with all the bold beadwork.

Pretty in Pink: Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie + Jessica Alba

Rachel Bilson wears a punchy pink for an editorial in Lucky magazine (love the beaded t-shirt and floaty skirt combo) while Nicole Richie channels Lady Penelope in a seriously tailored number for Ocean Drive magazine.

Jessica Alba however opts for a more delicate sugar pink hue and looks super pretty in Prada for another Cali magazine, Los Angeles Confidential.

Punchy pink jacket is a win

My favourite look of the lot!

The new pink lady

Strike a pose...

Jessica Alba looks fantastic in Prada
