Trend of the Week Florals

This week's Trend of the Week is something everyone likes, Florals. Seriously, I don't think anybody doesn't like Florals. From fresh flowers on your kitchen table to the first signs of spring with bluebells, snowdrops and daffodils lining the streets and popping up in unexpected places. For me in Ireland where the weather is always fairly bad there's something so refreshing about that first sign of life again after a long, cold and snowy winter. Of course fashion designers and highstreet stores had to cotton on to the appeal of flowers and start making clothing featuring beautiful designs from ditsy print to statement flowers and this season was no exception. It is only fitting that I should be covering the floral trend as the weather is warming up and the sun dresses are coming out. If you ask me there is nothing prettier than a gorgeously fitting floral sundress.

Florals were a huge part of the runways this season whether there were only a few statement pieces with a large floral feature or an entire collection centred around the beauty of nature.

Jil Sander dropped a few floral pieces in with her mainly Minimalistic but Bold Colour and striped runway show which you can see more of in my Trend for the Week Bold Colour.

Erdem showcased a stunning collection which has become a firm favourite for celebs rocking the floral trend, with people such as Anne Hathaway. Rashida Jones,Sarah Jessica Parker,Julianne Moore, Emily Mortimer, Lea Michele, Michele Williams, Anna Wintour, Cynthia Nixon, Keira Knightley and today Kate Middleton landed in Canada wearing the designer.

Alberta Ferretti put the most beautiful Collection of florals with chiffon, laces and billowing fabrics all decorated in Florals down the runway. I absolutely love this collection and this is exactly the kind of thing I would wear if I had the money.

And my favourite D&G. Seriously this is probably one of my favourite collections all season. I love everything about it from the pretty prints, the ruffles, the fabulous lust worthy maxi dresses, the cute little jumpsuits, the bloomers shorts and even the gorgeous runway decorations. Too adorable. It's a serious LOVE, WANT, NEED Collection. I would actually remortgage my life for one of those maxis.

And what a beautiful Print Ad. The models smiles to the light in the photographs seeping seductively through the trees really accomplish what ads are supposed to do, make you want to go out and buy the garments. All round this D&G collection deserves a standing ovation.

What do you think about this trend? Do you go loopy for some Florals? Are ya'll loving this D&G collection as much as me? Who was your favourite Runway Collection?
