Trend Alert! Get Playful with Whimsical Fashion

The summertime should be anything but serious. This time of year is for kicking back in the sunshine and spending time with friends.

This carefree attitude has inspired a hot new trend: whimsical fashion. It’s all about having some fun with your look and adding playful details to your style with super-cute motifs. Birds, butterflies, woodland creatures, stars, trees, fairies, flowers – anything goes!

Stars like Elle Fanning, Florence Welch and Kiera Knightley are the poster girls for whimsical fashion. Their look is all girlish romance, with delicate colours and pretty detailing.

Jewellery and accessories are always the best way to try out a new trend, so we’ve put together some whimsical style inspiration for you – with a few of the trend’s leading ladies and the jewellery you’ll need from H.Samuel to steal their style!
