After my ridiculously lazy day yesterday and lovely lie in this morning (needed after staying out all night trying to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower), I am feeling quite fresh-faced today. What could reflect my fresh mood better than a summery cherry blossom scene on a pair of trousers! The designers at Zara have got the feminine printed trouser perfected and their new collection completely lives up to this expectation. I love the fresh colours used in these digitally printed trousers and think they are absolutely perfect to wear on a sunny day in the north!I've teamed these trousers with very simple accessories and a plain black tee, the trousers have such a statement print that I wouldn't want to detract from this by over-complicating the outfit.

Trend: Ankle details!

Today's style post is all about the ankle detail trouser which Zara have interpreted beautifully in their digitally printed trousers(featured above).

Several Resort 14 collections featured detailing around the ankle(shown above). Some, like Josie Natori, are very subtle bringing attention to the bottom of the trouser using a dip dye technique, whereas others, Jean Paul Gaultier for example, bring obvious attention to the bottom of the trouser by focussing all the detailing in one area. I actually really like this micro- trend and hope it takes off in the SS14 collections as it's an interesting way of placing prints on trousers and could easily be diluted to become a high street trend!
