It seems to be the trend that never dies and this summer is no exception; they were all over last season’s catwalks and now the high-street has once again been transformed into a multicoloured meadow of floral prints.

Gone are last season’s cute ditzy prints though, replaced with bold statement florals not just adorning dresses and skirts but feminising tailored blazers and adding statement status to shoes and clutches.

Not always an easy trend to pull off, MFL has a few tips on how to be fabulous rather than frumpy in florals.

1. Toughen up girlie flower prints with leather accessories, a waist belt and some killer heels to ensure it doesn’t look like you’ve escaped from the set of Little House on the Prairie.

2. This isn’t a trend that has to cost you an arm and a leg, Topshops collection of mini dresses and jackets in quirky floral prints would look at home on any catwalk.

3. Charity shops are also full of hidden floral treasures which with a little tweaking can become unique statement pieces. Look out for rogue Laura Ashley prints.

4. Avoid fussy hair and make-up to keep the look young and fresh and mix and match contrasting floral prints for a more edgy look.

You’re now ready to bloom in florals this summer. We even spotted some on the A/W catwalks courtesy of Marni , looks like an investment trend to us, what more excuse do you need?
