Trend alert, skinny prints!

Slim-hip, long-legged ladies, if you haven’t bought a pair of trendy printed skinny jeans, what are you waiting for? This is for you!
Super skinny jeans can be hard to wear for anyone who isn't as long and lean as Victoria Beckham or Kate Moss. Add a print and it is truly a disaster. However, on the right body, cleverly-printed slim pants look chic and original with a crisp white shirt to tee.
 
We love Isabel Marant’s unusual skinny jeans. Marant's Jalyne Jean comes in a pastel paisley print that has a retro vibe that looks right this summer.

Trend alert, floral pumps!

Years ago Paul Simon sang about a girl with diamonds on the soles of her shoes. This spring, the prettiest pumps have no jewels on them, but they are in bloom. These ladylike shoes are as pretty as a Claude Monet painting covered in vibrant floral prints.
 
Pair them with cool, frocks in bright sherbet colours or crisp spring and summer dresses in cream, white, or black.
