This trend is every fashionistas oriental dream! Think clashing prints in silky fabrics, neon statement jewellery, your coolest sunnies and of course a high side pony tail which I am definitely going to be sporting this summer. The trick with the clashing prints is to try and pick out the same colours in each piece or add in a bright statement necklace will bring all the colours together in the outfit. Also for a quick and cheap oriental touch use your old floral silk scarves tied round waist as a sash/belt. Don't be scared to experiment with this trend and have fun with the prints.

I love all the silky fabrics and floaty kimono esq pieces that make this trend feel premium but so cool and fresh for the season. In this weeks magazines there has been lots of oriental references and product coming through on the high street especially Topshop launching 'East Meet West'. Head down to Oxford Circus and look at the window to gather your inspiration for how to wear- I promise you if you go in you won't come out empty handed.. Dangerous!

To tone the the trend down buy into it with an oriental print kimono, a wide leg statement printed trouser and throw on a leather jacket- buy statement pieces in oriental print and mix in with your own wardrobe. Or if your like me and like to go a bit mental wear it all together! Go for really dark lips to finish of the look and a killer shoe. Print and floaty fabrics with an eastern feel are a winner in my eyes and this look and trend makes me very excited for the season ahead... Roll on summer....
