Get the look NOW with our Spotlight on Style preview!

Miceal 2 adjWith so many Spring trends having come down the catwalk at London Fashion Week last September, it can be hard to know which ones are going to be the easiest and most flattering to wear.

This Wednesday we'll be holding a fab Spotlight on Style event, and the day is geared towards the four fashion trends identified by our fashion buyers and stylists that will keep you all looking cool and gorgeous as temperatures start to rise!

We asked QVC presenter and professional stylist Miceal Murphy to give us his take on how to achieve each look using items from Wednesday's shows, with the help of a few extra pieces that will become available over the next month or two.

To ensure you are top of your game this spring, be sure to dress with clean lines, comfort and performance in mind.

Layer up super-fine jersey fabrics, inject a pop of colour, and finish with chunky jewellery and a functional but luxurious bag.

Field of Flowers moodboardField of Flowers
With designers like Oscar de la Renta, Maison Martin Margiela and Christopher Kane all sending florals down the catwalk for S/S14, take time to stop, smell the roses and sow the seeds of a whole new look for this season.

With the floral theme this season having more dimension and less romance than past seasons, there are several different ways to achieve a floral feel. If head-to-toe is too much for you, mix it up with some of the other trends out there.

To keep the look understated, try a subtle floral lace skirt in white like this Kim&Co piece and pair it with some pastels, or just add a hint with some well-placed accessories.

I've gone for cooler tones of blues and greens with this look but you could just as easily turn up the heat with florals in corals and fuchsias. Be as bold as you feel brave enough to be!

70s Redux moodboard70s Redux

With big names like Versace, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford all harking back to the heyday of Studio 54, 70s retro chic was everywhere, from voluminous pants to platform shoes.

This trend is all about glamour, fun and fashion with the volume turned up. That said, as with all trends, you can jump headlong into it, or simply incorporate elements and accents into your look.

If you really want to feel that disco fever, wear your hair up with some big curls, in a high ponytail or swept to the side for maximum impact.

Unsure if you'll make it away on holiday this year, but longing for the romanticism of glowing sunsets and warm savannah breezes? Then simply transport yourself there with this great trend shown on the catwalks by no less than Hermes and Alexander McQueen!

This look is achieved by keeping fabrics natural and using digital prints.
