Ahh summer. The season of wild flowers, picnics and wearing explosions of botanical floral prints all over the place. Topshop has released a couple of super cute options for the flower-and-denim loving style maven this season: a button down chambray collared short-sleeved top and a matching flared denim mini-skirt. Pair each with contrasting separates or wear them together to make a bold statement. A statement that, without question, enforces your love of floral print and blue jeans.

There’s no stodgy styling in the spring/summer 2012 lookbook for Topshop’s denim line for ladies and we’re super-glad. The funky fresh outfits would be perfect for a summer music festival or a day-to-night beach look. Guess we’re not the only ones planning for summer already! Based on these images, we have an excellent variety to look forward to: floral, metallic, faded, and colored jeans galore. Plus, bedazzled shorts, highlighter-saturated jackets, and tie-dye denim vests. All of these pieces work together with a slightly hip-hop vibe, a colorful break in neutral toned monotony.
