The shops are bursting with gorgeous citrus prints right now - you can make a bold lemon dress the star of a summer outfit, adding a straw bag and espadrilles for a chic, Fifties-inspired look.

Many of these zesty designs have a retro vibe to them, but if you want to take the trend and give it a modern edge, try a lemon motif skirt paired with an oversized tee and sporty sandals.

Or if floaty frocks aren't your thing, a printed shirt and cargo pants is a more relaxed way to try the trend.

Heading off on holiday? A cute co-ord set is perfect for city sightseeing when teamed with white trainers, or dressed up for dinner with heeled sandals and a clutch bag.

Because most lemon print fabrics are either black or white, keep shoes and accessories neutral, or go for yellow to match the fruity hue.

Alternatively, citrus-themed accessories are ideal for adding a splash of colour to an outfit - think tasselled earrings and lemon slice bags.

There's so much style to be squeezed out of these summery pieces. Here's our pick of the lemon crop...
