The High Street takes on Prada...



Could you have imagined this time last year that Topshop would be selling Banana print leggings? Well that my friends is the doing of Prada. Asos are also jumping on the banana wagon with this cropped tee! Do you think you could get away with the banana leggings AND a colbalt blue stripe tank from Topshop? I challenge you! If not, these striped dresses from ASOS are the next best thing to a Prada outfit.

Miuccia Prada's Banana earrings. Replica's on sale at Punky Pins.


Clashing brights of Orange and Pink and contrasting black stripes are to me the definition of 'colour pop' - A lot of Topshops inspiration for fabric and prints seem to stem from Prada's Spring/Summer 2011! Check out the that Topshop midi bodycon skirt. It's a dead ringer for Prada!


Clashing colours work well, but so do colour blocks! I would try an accessory with a bright coloured trouser to start - or find a bright coloured jumpsuit! This colbalt blue rucksack is a premium leather bag from ASOS, and this orange satchel is on my wishlist from River Island.



Knits from Zara, and embroidery from River Island. Whilst in topshop white creeps in to seperate the stripes!


More Stripey knits from Zara, whilst Topshop Clashes stripes in their own way in a 2 in 1 dress! Asos get the bottle green into their summer stock with a leather satchel (that I want want want!) and a black and orange stripe dress (reminds me a lot of liquorice all sorts!)




Have you noticed the Prada fever taking over the high street? It's been creeping in for weeks now! Do you think you'll be buying into the clashing colours and thick bright stripes? Or even better the Banana print leggings??

If you do be sure to let me know, i'd love to see someone in them!

PS Don't forget my giveaway for a pair of £85 Polaroid sunglasses!

Oh this comment cheered me up so much, I was thinking the other day, am I the only one who seems to have bad credit?? Glad to hear other people have too. Maybe it is the curse of the shopping addiction.
I love all the stripes here, such a timeless look and really worth investing in...just talked myself into buying more!
Love the way you put everything together.

You are so right, Prada are getting the most high street equivalents - and some are better than the real thing! I did a post on a Primark dress thats v similar...

Those banana pants would look amazing with a white shirt for summer.

Do I need them? HELL YES.

I have noticed this and have to admit that I think it's great, although surely few people will be able to pull off banana prints.
