#Ablogadayforthewholeofmay Day 23 - Natalie on 5 spring/summer trends you need to know about.

1. Florals
Florals never really go out of Fashion, but this year they’re big, really big. Even big prints. Seen on the likes of Gwen Stefani with a bold dark lip, and on the catwalks of John Rocha and House of Holland, the Floral trend is very fitting for S/S14 and offer something fun, flirty and feminine for everyone.

2. Pastels­
This has arguably been the biggest trend this season, and is set to be throughout Summer. A dash of pastel and a whole outfit is brightened. It was a huge hit at this year’s Oscars too, with Lupita Nyong’o dominating the red carpet looks in this beautiful pastel blue Prada dress. Burberry got it right with a pastel pink colour on this years SS14 catwalk, as did Matthew Williamson with three massive trends in one; Florals, Pastels and Yellow. If you want to look fabulous this summer, then shop for something like this!

3. Mini-bags
Mini-bags are a trend that have been a little under the radar, but they are EVERYWHERE. Aren’t they cute too? Granted, you might have to downsize your handbag products, but you’ll look so good! Mini-bags made an appearance on Diane Von Frustenburg’s catwalk for Harrods, paired with a monochrome animal print (another huge trend) and Keira Knightley was seen sporting a Chanel one with her huge-news monochrome co-ord, looking fab as per! Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, daughter of presenter and Photographer Amanda de Cadenet, absolutely rocks this Valentino Mimetic Minaudiere mini-bag with a lacy white dress – perfect SS14 style!

4. Neons
Neons are cropping up all over the place, only in flashes, but still, they’re there and they’re set to be a scream. Neon can be a daring trend to pull off, but they’ve been hitting all the high street shops and the catwalks. This neon green lace dress is a sure stand-out piece from Karen Millen, perfect for a night out. Katy Perry pulls off the green look perfectly with an all green outfit and throwing a patterned skater in to break it up. And to add a twist to the neon look, Indian actress and singer Priyanka Chopra looks show-stopping in this neon Sari, the flash of pink just makes the whole thing work. Bravo, girls!

5. Metallic
This is another brave fashion trend to master, but you don’t have to go full on metallic. Rucksacks are back and adding a silver or gold rucksack to an outfit will immediately add some street-style to your outfit, or to add a bit of glam, get some metallic shoes! This sparkly metallic number from the SS14 Christopher Kane catwalk is beautiful, it’s the right amount of glam for a whole outfit in one piece, but if you’re looking for something a little less full on you could go for a flash of metallic, as seen on Nicola Finetti’s catwalk. It’s a great look if you’re looking for a little bit of shimmer. Everyone’s favourite style icon, Fearne Cotton, looked absolutely smokin’ at this year’s Brits with a silver metallic dress complete with a mini-bag! You can’t not love anything about this outfit.
