Although Spring is not exactly in full bloom yet, we're definitely seeing some new and old trends returning onto the fashion scene. What we didn't expect is the return of the floral pattern - and we're starting to think that this may become a classic staple, such as a pencil skirt and an LBD serves for the modern woman's closet. Take a look at how a most talented, creative singer has transformed the look of fresh florals from old-time to sophistication.

Worn at The People's Choice Awards, Katy Perry donned a floral Valentino design, complete with black Jimmy Choo pumps and Sylva and Cie diamond earrings. The dress's minimal floral print and its cinch at the waist draws attention to her best assets and allows for sweetness against the dark, black color of the dress. We love the crochet details along the neckline, shoulders and waist, as it exudes a vintage and boho-chic feel. Keeping it simple with elegant black pumps, the diamond Sylva and Cie earrings stand out and is an unexpected piece amongst all the simplicity of the ensemble.

For a similar, but budget-friendly look, check out Modcloth.com, a site known for its vintage and retro pieces. This beautifully structured, A-line dress from Modcloth.com, called Enchanted Afternoon Dress in Mums, is a halter with a fitted waist, thanks to the cinched, belted detail. You can add a fitted long-sleeved black shirt for a similar look as Katy Perry wore. Finish with a black, faux-suede pump from Aldo. Keep it simple with a semi-high heel, as the floral pattern of the dress should be your focal point. For diamond earrings, head to Kate Spade for this classic, understated and elegant piece to make the look more refined. For beautiful jewelry www.diamondsandrings.co.uk has gorgeous options.
