Feeling Fruity

I can't tell you how jealous I am not to be at this years' Coachella Festival over the pond. Two weekends full of amazing music and beautiful people, sigh! We've been keeping a close ear on the musical happenings over there (James Blake live? Babe) but also a close eye on what those ever so lovely ladies are wearing out in the sunshine. And we're beginning to notice a theme!

That's right, Carmen Miranda's tropical togs have inspired a micro trend yet again. They had a their style moment back in S/S/11 with Stella McCartney's zingy citrus prints, Prada's zainy bananas and Moschino's full on strawberry dress that inspired a huge juicy trend 2 years ago. 

Getting back to the year 2013, florals are always going to be the power pattern of the season, but it's brilliant to see celebs and their stylists thinking outside the box.  Especially when the sun comes out - who could help themselves?

We've found some awesome fruity fashion tops online both high street and vintage to get you to jazz up your wardrobes just in time for "summer" (will we ever get one?!). Even the lads can get involved! Now all we need is a plane ticket to the festival of my dreams.
