Spring is just around the corner and Fashionista/os anxiously count down the days until they can ditch their parkas. It is time to get ready to bring out prints and bright colours that are dying to make it out of Fashionista/o’s closets. I spotted this Fashionista, getting an early start, who rocked a pair of floral print trousers paired with bold red boots. I loved how she mixed different patterns and colours that nicely complemented each other.

How To: Start off with a basic black top and a pair of floral print trousers. Then, add a black coat and a bright red pair of ankle boots. Find a purse, with a great print, a long blue scarf and a chic black hat. Finish off with a few edgy spiked bracelets and a classy watch.
